Teaching at QuiltCon this year was an awesome experience, but it did mean that I had less time on the show floor than I have had in previous years. I decided to make the most of this limited time by walking the show at a fairly quick pace and stopping only at the quilts that really caught my eye. While I am sure that I missed tons of amazing quilts by not taking each one in individually, I have been able to spot some trends in my own taste. One of the design features I was most drawn to this year is the use of neutral or mostly neutral color palettes.
Today’s post focuses on those quilts that are predominantly neutral. They feature lots of grey, tan, black, white, and occasionally very muted forms of other colors. Some have colorful accents, but others do not.
NONE OF THE QUILTS PICTURED ARE MY WORK! Each work is labeled with the maker and their Instagram handle when available. These are in no particular order, and this post may take longer than usual to load because there are so many yummy quilt photos!

Thanks for posting photos of the quilts made in neutral colors. I’m amazed at how many there were. Every time I think I must have seen all of the quilts from QuiltCon posted on Instagram and blogs I find another post with more, Thanks for taking the time to create this post.
On a colorful note I love your quilt “Emergence”.
