This month’s color is Grey. We have two amazing guests this month. I am so excited for you to read their posts.
First up, is Nydia Kehnle. I met Nydia during Quiltcon 2015 and have always loved her work. Her improvisation quilt that included both machine quilting and hand quilting, won an award that year. She is an amazing designer, and photographer. I have been so excited to see her quilt pattern/design collaboration with Alison Glass, her releases of embroidery designs and experimentation with improvisation. Recently, she has been teaching some of her techniques at Glamp Stitchalot and next year at Quiltcon. Check out her thoughts on photography and how it influences her use of Grey.
Nicole, from Modern Handcraft, was one of the first people I met in this virtual crafting world. If you don’t know her, she has a great sense for modern design and craft beers/ciders. You might know her from her Hexie projects but she has recently been releasing some amazing new quilt patterns. Grey is one of her favorite neutrals. Find out how she uses grey in her projects and in naming her son ;-).

Interesting to read what they both had to say. I love grey, myself. It brings a certain toughness and rigour to its role as a neutral, it has ‘muscle’. You can use it to create an architectural effect in a way that cannot be achieved with other neutrals. And I also love the range of shades it comes in, from super warm to super cool.
