Jeanne, Karrie and I are talking about making a Dear Jane quilt. SERIOUSLY talking about it. I have the Dear Jane software from Electric Quilt, so I’ve been messing around with colors. I know I want to make it out of solids, and I know I want a pale, silvery gray for the background. I know the name will be Plain Jane. I know that, while I love Kona, it may be too thick to make little 4 1/2″ blocks. I checked out Connecting Threads solids (um, Hi Jeanne, guess what came in last night!) and the weight seems to be perfect, plus they have the perfect light gray. Unfortunately, while the range of colors is awesome, they don’t have the exact colors I want. Why, now that I want soft, grayed out colors, can’t I find them anywhere?
This is the look I think I’m going for:
So, are we nuts?
