Pondering Gray on a Sunny Day

The next Twelve by Twelve color challenge, chosen by Kirsty, is gray. All winter, I see gray. Now, we are having sunny and beautiful weather and I am looking for gray fabrics!! Above are a couple of silk organza possibilities. That dark gray has been used in a few art quilts I have made, I really like it.

These are the only hand-dyed cottons in my stash with gray tones. Rather wrinkled and uninspiring.

Today, we had our monthly STASH meeting at Suzy’s. She prepared a very delicious lunch, and we had our usual good time sharing our work and stories.

Tonight, after dinner, I took my camera down to the Rhodie Garden and got these shots in the waning light.

    You can add some energy to your group of gray fabrics with black and white. There is a lot of beautiful subtle color in a couple of those fabrics. Can you add brighter fabrics as accent colors?

    The middle photos looks like inspiration for the gray challenge.

    You are such a lover of bright color I can see that this challenge might be a bit difficult. I like the variation of grays you have — especially the dark lines in the light organza. I think you are closer than you know to inspiration. 🙂
