Spotlight on Neutrals: Quilts and More for Any Decor by Pat Wys is a collection of 12 quilt projects made in soothing tones that are easy on the eye. This line of designs celebrates the quiet beauty of a neutral palette, and shows how muted shades can still be used to create intriguing and attractive quilts.
Spotlight on Neutrals is an invaluable resource for quilters who like home decor sewing projects. The neutral color palette creates pieces that don't clash with any of your existing furniture, paint, or other decorations. Instead these quilts blend seamlessly into your decor, showing off your love of quilting without overwhelming a room. Quilting with neutrals is a sophisticated way to incorporate your hobby into your interior design. Wys has used a neutral color palette exclusively in this collection of patterns to demonstrate how beautiful a quilt can be without the least bit of color. These innovative designs can be used to create gorgeous neutral quilts for gifts or for your own home. And if you decide to swap out one of the neutral fabrics for an accent color, all the better!
Wys begins Spotlight on Neutrals with the quilt that inspired the book, the White Chocolate quilt. It's a log cabin quilt made in varying shades of cream and beige, and it proves just how beautiful neutrals can be. One of the perks of using neutrals you'll notice in this quilt is that the subtle palette allows the piecework pattern to really shine. Without the distractions of color and print, you can appreciate the elegance of a classic log cabin pattern. Wys used the appealing simplicity of the White Chocolate quilt as a framework for the rest of the quilts in this collection. You'll find patchwork quilts comprised of buttery beiges, rich chocolate browns, and starkly contrasting blacks. Grey even makes an appearance in a few of the quilts, showing off its sophistication best in the Baby It's Cold Outside Wall Hanging. This simple snowflake quilt combines the dreariest colors of winter into a stunning quilt that reveals winter's beauty.
