Scared to choose colors? Try neutral quilts (+ fabric giveaway!)

Bee-U-tiful table runnerThink neutrals are drab, dull, and only for guys? No way! A “neutral” is anything that’s not on the color wheel—and that leaves a lot of choices. Fabric makers are stuffing quilt-shop shelves with more striking, high-quality neutrals than ever, and Pat Wys became one of the reigning queens of the neutral look with her first book, Spotlight on Neutrals. She continues to inspire with her new sequel, Knockout Neutrals, coupling cottons with decadent wool, silk, and linen.

Pat says if you want to build your color confidence, make an all-neutral quilt. She guarantees you won’t want to stick to a single fabric line any longer. Instead, you’ll be grabbing fabric from all over the store! Read on for Pat’s compelling case for why every quilter has just got to go neutral—starting with the ability to make peace with value.


FABRIC GIVEAWAY ALERT!

Brewer Quilting and Sewing SuppliesOur friends at Brewer Quilting and Sewing Supplies have generously donated beautiful stacks of Stof neutral fabrics to give away to you! Find out how you can win a stack and Pat’s new book at the bottom of this post.

Pat WysHere I am again all giddy with excitement over the publication of my second book, Knockout Neutrals. You’re probably thinking, how in the world can anyone be giddy over a bunch of quilts with no color? HOLD ON NOW! Neutrals are all the rage—have you been to your local quilt shop? Have you seen the neutral fabrics that are coming into the market by the truckload? Let’s just think about neutrals and their use. Come on now, give me a chance to further convince you to make an all-neutral quilt. You seriously need to do this.

Here is my ground-breaking, life-changing, you-better-listen-up statement: If you want to learn about COLOR, make a neutral quilt!

Mist quilt
“Mist” quilt

What??? Yes, I said that! You’ll learn more about color if you work with a no-color palette for a while. In other words, when you limit your palette to no color, you are FORCED to deal with value and value only.

Value is contrast, or the degree of lightness or darkness of a color. Talking about value is an area that tends to make quilters’ heads spin off their shoulders! They’ve been known to trot around quilt stores saying, “Can somebody help me pick out fabric for my quilt, because I’m sooo bad at it!” Maybe you ARE THAT PERSON! (You don’t have to admit this right now; you may remain anonymous, as the quilt police have been silenced.) I would argue that it’s not that quilters are bad with color; they just don’t understand how to use value in the choosing and placement of fabrics.

La Belle Fleur quilt

Value is the central key to any quilt. I like to tell people that it pays to know who you are as a quilter. Do you like blended quilts? My quilt “J’Adore”  is a bit of a blended quilt; it’s quietly elegant.

Do you like quilts that POP with movement? Check out “Road Trip,” which is the cover quilt of the book.

Choosing fabrics and thinking about value is crucial when building a quilt that pleases you. It is often said that color gets the credit but value does all the work. Making an all-neutral quilt is the best lesson for learning how to use value to your advantage. Once you study and learn about value, the sky is the limit for how you can make value work for you in all future quilting projects.

You’ll also find that you do NOT need to make “line-specific” quilts all the time. You will find yourself putting together all kinds of fabrics from various fabric companies using your newly found confidence with value. This is something for your quilting brain to ponder. I have found pondering it is best done while sewing, and it pays to have chocolate nearby.

I have been on a three-year mission to convince the quilting world that neutral quilts are for EVERY PERSON, EVERY DECOR, and EVERY QUILTING TECHNIQUE. Yes, they are! I won’t rest until everyone in the quilt world has made a neutral quilt. (That’s me being dramatic like Scarlett O’Hara.)

When I ask people to describe what neutral means to them in one word, they often say things like “boring,” “guy quilts,” “ugly,” “too modern,” and “blahhh,” along with many other negative adjectives. But Knockout Neutrals has a project for so many favorite styles of quilts. If your quilting tastes are traditional, take a look at “Feels like Home.”

If you like a modern look, how about “Dominos”?

If you prefer ease of construction, you’ll love “Day and Night.”

Prefer a bit more of a sewing challenge? “Arboretum” is just the ticket for you.

The designs in Knockout Neutrals have it all, and they’re timeless. You’ll see, go on now, get the book and check it all out. I think you’ll say I’m right in the end and you’ll want to run out and get some fabulous neutral fabrics. If you don’t agree, please don’t contact me—I’m in my sewing room “pondering.”

    EPLawyer on October 29, 2013
  • I love all of your quilts and table toppers and runners. I have always liked the "drab" fabrics, but especially black, tan and brown together. One of my favorites is the "Back porch basket pillow". I agree, once you learn how values work, picking fabrics becomes so much easier. Nancy Post, October 29, 2013

    Nancy Post on October 29, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for me! As one of those quilters who struggle with color and color theory, I think making a neutral quilt is one of the best ideas I have entertained. Just the pictures I have looked at on this post have given me more insight. I try to learn something every day. I got that accomplished early today LOL!

    —Kathy Pennell on October 29, 2013
  • OOoo I love them all, I think I’d like to make one for my man – who I’m sure would appreciate my hardwork and love, and the fact that it’s nice and neutral but oh so effective!

    —Lucy on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to win a book of instruction and fabric so i could do it myself.

    —Denise on October 29, 2013
  • I really want to make one for myself. I love the runner in the top picture. I can come up with a least a dozen patterns that would look stunning in neutrals. Pat’s book looks like a winner no matter what color combination you choose.

  • I would love to Win these items!

    —Judy Cook on October 29, 2013
  • I would make a quilt for ME! Neutrals are wonderful, sort of a trip to the past with tin type/sepia photos.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    Queenie on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make the Mist quilt for myself. I haven’t made a neutral quilt but this book and the designs in it are going to have me digging thru my stash.

    —Rina on October 29, 2013
  • I made a neutral quilt that stays on my sofa -and it is one of my favorites. I would love to make another for my bedroom, and they are always a good choice for charity quilts as they have widespread appeal.

    —Regina on October 29, 2013
  • I’d make the bed runner for myself, then maybe "Mist" for someone else!

    —Karen on October 29, 2013

    Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Sheila on October 29, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to make some table runners for gifts but have stalled out because I don’t know the color schemes for some of them, but the use of neutrals solves that problem. I really like the table runner in the first pictures and think it would work for a friend. Thanks to Brewers for their donation. I used to work with them on an almost daily basis when I worked in retail fabric sales in an independent fabric and craft shop–great people to work with,

    —Sue on October 29, 2013

    —Kathy Averett on October 29, 2013
  • My daughter. She loves neutral fabrics because they are so easy to decorate with. By changing out colorful pillows you can instantly change the decor without changing the whole room.

    —Sherry Rupe on October 29, 2013

    —Joanne Montague on October 29, 2013
  • My next value quilt will be for my baby on the way!
    Well, according to her definition, I use neutrals all the time. I like to make stars out of neutrals with dark backgrounds, like the night sky with bright stars twinkling. I’ve used dark blue and dark green, and I will be using dark grey and black with the next one. I use yellow like a neutral, and I like lots of value contrast. It’s fun using a dark, medium and light yellow to emphasize the different areas of the stars, to make the patterns POP off the dark background. And shine like a star! I find myself being creative with a limited palette with the values.

  • My niece as she has decided not to find out the sex of her baby. That makes picking out fabric for her quilt a little challenging so neutrals are the direction I am heading.

    —Maryjo on October 29, 2013
  • Love the soothing quality of neutrals. These quilts are keepers.

    —Judy Y on October 29, 2013

    —Keri on October 29, 2013

    —Lovie Ball on October 29, 2013
  • Love the quilts. Road Trip is my favorite. I would have to make it for my husband. He hates all the "frilly", as he calls it, colors that I usually make. So I would have to make it for him.

    Laurie P on October 29, 2013
  • For my son. They are perfect for a youngster

    —Marta on October 29, 2013
  • One can make awesome neutral quilts but picking the fabric is harder even than colors. I’m loving that your book addresses that challenge. I’m hoping to try it. Pick me.

    —Sharon Weibler on October 29, 2013
  • Me, definitely. I think it would go great with our sofa

    —Laura F on October 29, 2013
  • These neutral quilts are so relaxing-looking. All you need is warm cocoa and a good book.

    —Lois Gern on October 29, 2013
  • I’d love to make a neutrals quilt runner for my dining room table. Working with neutrals really helps in seeing the values within a quilt pattern, something that is often lost when choosing colors. We may like how a certain color grouping works, yet don’t realize the impact of values have on pulling off a quilt design.
    Thanks for this opportunity!

    Carolyn on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make the quilt on the cover for myself. Thanks for the chance.

  • I have been collecting neutrals for about the last six months now. I have been planning a neutral pieced quilt with applique vines and flowers. I don’t have an actual pattern as yet though. I don’t know if the quilt would be for me or to use as a gift. I like to have smaller quilts on hand for weddings or showers that occasionally come up. I would love to win a copy of your book for some more inspiration and of course the fabric would always come in handy!

    Jen Robertson on October 29, 2013

    —Charlotte Brown on October 29, 2013
  • I am the first to admit that I am very unsure of myself when picking colors. I tend to be conservative in my choices, but never would have thought to do an entire quilt using only neutrals. Wow — now I see how well with neutrals work with each other and can actually "pop" within a quilt. My next project is going to be a throw quilt for my living room (solid brown couch!) and I love the "Road Trip Quilt" pattern and colors. So, my next quilt is for ME and now I have inspiration to get started!

    —joan desantis on October 29, 2013

    Sandy Spence on October 29, 2013
  • I am new to the quilting world, but love finding new ideas and ways to use colors, or in this case neutrals to my advantage. Because I am so new to the quilting world, I hesitate making quilts for anyone but close friends and family, but I would love to do a neutral quilt for any future children I may have. That way, it can be used and loved by many instead of just one!

    —Alex Unander on October 29, 2013

    Ashley Malinowski on October 29, 2013
  • I can’t believe how gorgeous those neutral quilts are. I never would have done one but now I’m seriously considering it. I don’t have anyone in particular in mind but if it comes out looking like a "guy quilt" I can think of a few who would like to have it!

    —Janice on October 29, 2013
  • Myself!

    —Cheryl on October 29, 2013

    —Robin on October 29, 2013
  • I absolutely LOVE neutral quilts…I keep them all!!! So I guess I wouldn’t be lying if I said I’d make a neutral quilt for myself. LOL! I especially like mixing cool neutrals (grays) with warm neutrals (tans). I love the effect that it makes. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    —Jane on October 29, 2013
  • I think that neutrals would be great to work with but have not done so yet but plan to make a neutral quilt in the future. Color placement will mean a lot more when you make a neutral quilt.

And this is the perfect time since he is moving in a few months – and who doesn’t want a new quilt to celebrate a move? I’ve been looking for the perfect quilt for him. These are just his style.

    —Sherryl on October 29, 2013
  • Oh my, what inspiration! Pat you are terrific in utilizing neutrals into a beautiful work of art. I would love to make a neutral quilt for myself first, and then it would be hard to stop with just one quilt once I get going. Thank you for your pep talk.

    —SUSAN FORMAN on October 29, 2013
  • The quilts in Pats’ book are stunning. I would have to start by making one for
    myself. I’m sure this would not be the last one I would make. I love every one of the patterns she has designed. I can’t wait to start! Thanks for the opportunity to win Pats book.

    —Diane Wright on October 29, 2013

    —Judy Merchant on October 29, 2013
  • I hope to eventually make one quilt for each of my nieces and nephews. One nephew lives on the opposite coast from us and I am not very familiar with his interests, so a neutral quilt would be a good choice for him. I’ve seen so many nice neutral quilt patterns lately and I’d love to try one.

    —Donna Bays on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for a wounded warrior. Everything that is suggested for them is red/white/blue, and while patriotism is an important element in honoring them, I think the calm and peacefulness which these neutral colors bring to mind would bring them a sense of comfort.

    —Carol Edison on October 29, 2013
  • Wow! Feels Like Home is a beautiful quilt. Love the baskets!
    Thank you for the oppotunity to win this book!

    —Marlene on October 29, 2013

    —Diane on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt . I also love the sort colors

    —Eloda Hansen on October 29, 2013
  • Both Mist and Road Trip look like quilts I would enjoy trying to make. One for our own bed and one for my son. Neutrals sound like it would help me so much since getting the "right" colors is always a struggle.

    —Heartsdesire on October 29, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a basket quilt but I have never found one I was just crazy about…. until I saw "Feels Like Home". I just love the details in the border and in the variety of the baskets. It gives a very old block a very modern look in the neutral colors.

    —Cyndi on October 29, 2013
  • I always use brights – these fabrics would get me started on one of these great projects – it will be hard to pick which one to start first.

    where I relax. Thanks for the chance.

    —Jane from MA on October 29, 2013
  • Absolutely would love to make a neutral quilt, I have such a hard time with color and I buy the matterial with help from the store and then freeze so I think if I do a netural it will be a good start. I love to quilt but the contrast is not there. Love your fabric and the quilts are to die for, striving to be accurate and make these beautiful quilts

    —Nancy Bonnette on October 29, 2013
  • I would make one for myself. Every quilt in this book says comfort to me. And who doesn’t need to be wrapped in comfort?!

    —Paula on October 29, 2013

    —Michele Tinetti on October 29, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral for myself. I love, love, love neutral quilts. They all look so soothing and cuddly!

(I could buy it, but winning makes something more special!) Thank You.

    —Janet T on October 29, 2013

  • I’d love to make one for my self. Our queen bed is in need of a new homemade quilt.

    —Kathy Nelson on October 29, 2013
  • I didn’t realize how pretty neutral quilts could be. My daughter asked me to make her a quilt several years ago with black, silver/gray and white. I just couldn’t picture a quilt from those "colors" with out making me feel depressed. Maybe now I can get up the nerve to do it. Thanks!

    —Wendy P on October 29, 2013
  • I never feel compelled to buy neutrals, but I always admire a well executed neutral quilt — there’s been a disconnect there in my quilting brain, hmmmm?

    —RST on October 29, 2013
  • Myself. Our queen bed is in need of a new, homemade quilt.

    —Kathy Nelson on October 29, 2013

    —Jenelle Boxberger on October 29, 2013
  • Gorgeous quilts. they don’t even need more color.

    —Gail Holt on October 29, 2013
  • I love your style. Neutrals are the new….. (fill in the blank). Black and white quilts ARE neutrals and many of quilts are just that, black and white. Looks like an excellent job you have done on your book. Anyone in the Washington Seattle area should do the "Martingale tour" It’s fabulous.

    —Karen on October 29, 2013
  • KI would love to make a neutral quilt for my youngest daughter, age 32. She has recently escaped a very dangerous and horrible abuse relationship. She escaped with only her purse and her dog. Her ex got rid of all her things including a couple quilts I had previously made her. The neutrals would have a soothing, calming effect on her. She is such an awesome young woman and she deserves only the best in life. Your quilts are really gorgeous and I would love the book for myself.

    Iris Severin on October 29, 2013
  • ‘Knockout Neutrals’ is definitely changing my mind about boring beige. I’m not a tan/beige person, but this book is not boring–I’d love to make my sister a project from this book because she is a neutral person (and my best friend).

    —Donna on October 29, 2013
  • Neutrals you say but I find them really quite colorful and great designs too … ! They make me think of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, Oreo and caramel ice cream… Really delicious !

    —Joyce Ann on October 29, 2013
  • These quilts and the fabric are absolutely take-your-breath-away beautiful!! I would love to win.

    —Barbara Pricola on October 29, 2013
  • Pat’s writings about using "neutrals" brings words like "soft", "warm" and "love" to my mind. I have a friend who wants a quilt made with Bible verses. She is in the process of embroidering them on muslin fabric. This is a learning process for her. I plan on using neutral fabrics to make this a soft, warm and made with love quilt for her.

  • I would love to make one of these quilts as this would go so well with the decor in my home.

    —Debbie on October 29, 2013
  • I’d love to make a neutral-toned quilt for my husband. His job has become extremely stressful, and I think a neutral-toned quilt hanging where he could see and enjoy it in the family room might act as a stress reducer. Something about those calming tones…

    Nancy Hooper on October 29, 2013
  • Would like to make a quilt for my friend who was just diagnosed with her second round of breast cancer. The stack of neutrals are beautiful, just her style.

    —Pamela Zenick on October 29, 2013

    —Anne on October 29, 2013

    —Valerie Patterson on October 29, 2013
  • I like both "Dominoes" and "Day and Night" as possibilities for my daughter who spends time at both ends of the earth–Antarctica and Alaska! I could certainly use the help with values!

  • " myself" I would love to win this fabric. Love the neutral colors and patterns.

    —Debbie Cronin on October 29, 2013

    —Rosalee on October 29, 2013

    —Lisa Marie on October 29, 2013
  • I’m drawn to quilts in shades of color. They are so calming and cozy. I’m anxious to try one of these new neutral patterns–hopefully incorporating the beautiful fabrics from Brewer.

    —Donna on October 29, 2013
  • I would make one for my son – he has had some health problems and needs a nice warm quilt to snuggle in. He has red hair so the neutral colors would be perfect..

    —Carolyn Young on October 29, 2013
  • I absolutely love the log cabin quilt I made for myself from Spotlight on Neutrals! I always get compliments on it, especially from other quilters who wouldn’t have thought neutrals were a "colorway". This book looks like it’s shaping up to be better than the first one!

    —Jennifer on October 29, 2013
  • We all make so many quilts with vibrant colors, it’s good to be reminded how stunning a neutral quilt is. I love J’Adore and Road Trip. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

    Susan G on October 29, 2013
  • My mother would love that quilt with the fab colors. i find it hard to come up with such great colors. I loved that it is already picked out for you

    Anna Sidwell on October 29, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for myself and both my married sons. The reason speaks for itself….they go with most everything! That is a fabulous book, like each of the quilts in the pictures and the fabrics would be a great addition to my stash for one of those quilts.

    —Nancy on October 29, 2013
  • You said "myself" works. So myself it is. Would love to win!!!

    —Emily Foote on October 29, 2013
  • I just love the calm and peacefulness of these neutral quilts. Tired of all the scrap one with hundreds of bright colors. I am thinking of making a black, beige and cream. It would just what I need with all the turmoil that I have had the past month.

    pamela kieffer on October 29, 2013

  • My husband

    —Linda on October 29, 2013
  • Pat’s enthusiasm is infectious, and her quilts are just GORgeous! I got to meet her a couple years ago in Houston, and she’s as fun in real life as her quilts & blog would lead you to believe! I’d have to be honest, though, and tell you that my dear son-in-law is about the only one I’ve NOT sewn for, and he’s patiently waiting….not-so-patiently. One of Pat’s outstanding quilts would just fit the bill! And I’m the first one to admit, I struggle with color AND value, so having her tell me the way to make eye-catching quilts would really really help!

    Hi Pat, she says, waving madly!! Hugs!!

    Karin on October 29, 2013
  • I love neutral quilts and would make one for myself or any of my friends. Love them!!

    —Sue Kinner on October 29, 2013

    —Harriet on October 29, 2013
  • Love the road trip quilt. I am a scrappy quilter and am always looking for more neutrals. These are lovely.

    —Terry H on October 29, 2013
  • I’ve been thinking about making something in neutral colors for myself.

    —Gay on October 29, 2013
  • I thought neutrals were boring until I saw your quilts. I would love to win and make a quilt for my mother.

    —Sandy S on October 29, 2013
  • Absolutely love the idea and the quilts. Never thought of using neutrals before but I can’t wait to try one. I have wanted to make quilts for my grandchildren but have hesitated because I wasn’t sure what colors they might like and if the patterns were up-to-date for young people to like. These are fantastic! I didn’t see a one that could not go with any color scheme or decorating style.

    —Anita Iliff on October 29, 2013
  • I prefer myself, but if I made one for a friend whose color scheme I was unsure of, I’d make a neutral one, to be on the safe side. Love all the beautiful quilted items in your book.

    —Sylvia on October 29, 2013

    —Jean Blythe on October 29, 2013
  • I would make a quilt for my husband of 36 years. I’ve made scores of quilts during that time for friends, family members, and charities, but somehow I never got around to making one for him. And he certainly deserves one — after all, he’s paying for all this fabric! :^) I know he would love a neutrals only quilt, and this book (with the great fabric) looks like a wonderful place to start! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kearstie Grenier on October 29, 2013
  • The neutrals are really beautiful. Would love to make a quilt for my bedroom, which at this time is done in bright colours. Am in the process of making baby quilts and think that the neutrals would also be a wonderful colouration on a baby quilt.

    —Vicki Sprain on October 29, 2013

  • Grandson who is graduating in May. unless I keep it for myself. Thanks for the ideas.

    Arlene Hemmingson on October 29, 2013
  • Since I tend to use color a lot, making a quilt using all neutrals would be a reach for me. I do like that instead of hues, I could really learn more about values. I think this would be a quilt for me! I love the Arboretum quilt! I admit I am having a love affair with HSTs!

    —Judi Reiss on October 29, 2013
  • I am guessing everyone I know would love to make one of these quilts. I love subtle and these are superb examples. Pick me!! Please!!

    —Doreen on October 29, 2013
  • Thanks for the beautiful new ideas! I would really love to try your patterns.

    —Linda on October 29, 2013
  • I want to make the J’adore quilt just for myself! (I’d like to make some of the others for loved ones, too!

    —Martha C on October 29, 2013
  • These pictures of table runners are beautiful. I never thought of neutrals this way. I would love to win these and try some of the ideas shown. They get my ideas flowing in my mind. Thank you for that. 🙂

    —Joan Chenette on October 29, 2013
  • I had no idea that there were so many "neutrals" as browns, tans, greys, and black and blues? or is any light pastel considered??? I am so confused but I really like the look of the quilts as they are very pretty and considered "neutrals" yeehaw!

    —diane on October 29, 2013
  • Why? Because it’s on my "bucket list" of quilts to make! I’ve been adding to my stash for some time now. The Feels like Home or Aboretum should pattern would help to complete the supply list!

    —Ruth Anglin on October 29, 2013

    —Kathy Brown on October 29, 2013

    Priscilla Corsi on October 29, 2013
  • I met a fellow lady angler this past week-end and she told me about her husband who served in Afghanistan for 3 tours of duty, and on his last tour how his HumVEE was hit by an IUD. It killed several in his vehicle. He received traumatic brain injury and nerve damage in his neck and back, has PTSD and subsequently had to retire with medical disability after 14 years service in the Army. He was a medic and saved many lives during active duty. I would like to make a quilt for him as a gift for his service to our country and to my family and friends. He is a Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient. So this is what I would do if I win the book and fabric.

    —linda Love on October 29, 2013

    —Marilyn on October 29, 2013
  • My son would love a quilt in these neutral colors!!!
    The last quilt I made him was when he was two years old- he is now 23!!!!

    —Roxann Frei on October 29, 2013
  • I have a dear friend who has been battling cancer for the last nine months and she’s the one who encouraged me to start quilting, "give it try, she said, you might enjoy it." She was right but now for all her talent and how she helped me, she just doesn’t have the energy to quilt. I would very much like to make her a "special quilt to comfort her" as she continues in her ongoing treatments; one to wrap up in and remind her of the wonderful times in the past that we so enjoyed sharing. Using your fabrics would certainly be an added help to get the project DONE.

    Jeanne Mellott on October 29, 2013
  • The quilts shown are beautiful. I would love to make one for myself!

    —Janet G on October 29, 2013

  • Neutral quilts are all the rage now. While they have been out of my norm in the past I have seen several of these quilts in this article that I just have to make. Thank you for sharing the inspirations and nudging me into seriously considering making not only one but many of these quilts. This book, as well as the starter fabrics, would really push me over the edge to making one of these quilts a reality. Thank you.

    —Sue Fender on October 29, 2013

    —Lynda McNab on October 29, 2013
  • I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE neutrals. I need one for my bed, one for my son, and one for my daughter – for starters. Please send me some so I can be happy.

    —Alicia on October 29, 2013

    Thanks for the give away.

    —Valerie A. Clark on October 29, 2013
  • I love the blended look, but I always (even at the assembly stage) feel compelled to add a dark dark and a light light. I can’t help myself. So I’m practicing with creamy to brown neutrals making philanthropy quilts for the guild. People donate a lot of brown and tans from their stashes. Once I "get it" I’ll be ready to do a keeper for me.

    —Sandy on October 29, 2013
  • I never thought neutrals could look so great! These colors are what one of my quilting friends lovingly calls "mud" and, they are her favorites! She does wonderful things with mud but, I never thought I could until I saw this book…..what great ideas!!!!

    —Amy Lund on October 29, 2013

    —wilma young on October 29, 2013
  • I’ve always wanted to make a quilt using neutrals and a quilt shop I had visited had one on display, of course they were sold out of the kit. It is still on my to do list and I’m sure I will get to it sometime. I love the book and all the projects that are included. Thanks for sharing.

    —Marcia Gilbreath on October 29, 2013
  • I had no idea how beautiful a quilt could be using these neutral "colors" I especially liked "Feels Like Home" as it gives off the warmth that a home should feel like when your family and friends come for a visit and they feel the warmth and love in your home. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

    —Joan Zeis on October 29, 2013
  • myself

    —anita on October 29, 2013
  • Now that I’ve reviewed all the patterns, I can see that neutrals have a quiet elegance when used all in one quilt. No more neutrals just as background for me. This book is a keeper, and I’d love to make that basket quilt for myself. Yes, me!

    —Vickie on October 29, 2013
  • Myself and my daughter

    —Dena on October 29, 2013

    —Norma Chapin on October 29, 2013

  • I would make a neutral quilt for my brother and sister-in-law. WE have not seen them in some time and we don’t know what their decorating scheme is like. A neutral quilt may be able to star in almost any kind of décor.

    —Betsy Hubbell on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for myself. I love playing with color and ideas about value/hue/brightness, etc… I am in the midst of finishing up a three quilt collection, on which I worked with one color per quilt, (1.all blue, 2. all purple, 3. all green) It was a block of the week series of 49 weeks and it was a challenge to stick to one color and yet highlight the pattern of each unique block. Pat’s book looks like a fabulous challenge and the fabric packs look lovely, too! Thanks

    —Amanda Best on October 29, 2013

    —Dianna Willstaedt on October 29, 2013
  • I think I would like to make a neutral quilt for experience of it. I tend to drench myself in color when choosing quilt fabrics so a neutral or low volume quilt would be a challenge for me. Thanks for sharing your fabulous quilts with us!

    —Jackie Papallo on October 29, 2013
  • My sister just remodeled her kitchen/dining room and really needs something with neutrals in it. I’ve been looking for a design, but now I know it’s really about the colors.

    —ibby on October 29, 2013
  • Our quilt guild made a neutral quilt with shades of grey. Some guild members said it would never sell many raffle tickets. The quilt raffle did very well and I am ready to make one for myself. Your book looks wonderful.

    —darlene on October 29, 2013
  • I love colourful quilts and am very partial to certain colour pallets and when my likeminded friend and I were shopping for batiks to create a project together, we shunned neutrals and what we termed ‘mud’ fabrics. We were assured that there would come a day when we would happily select and use such fabrics and I think perhaps that day has come. I am very taken with the simple beauty of these neutral quilts and would be delighted to make, own and display any or all of them.

    —Kathleen on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to win this beautiful book and those wonderful fabrics. Thanks for letting me participate.

    I would love to create for her a calm, soft and soothing quilt of neutrals that would welcome her at the end of her day and help her relax and leave the stress behind for a while.

    —Linda on October 29, 2013
  • I would have to start out by making something for myself, just to see how it goes, then, like many other commenters, something for my son and daughter-in-law who decorate their home in neutrals.

    Victoria Miner on October 29, 2013

    —carol on October 29, 2013
  • I love neutrals! The vinyl that we have in our kitchen, bath, and laundry room is a neutral in a design like a quilt of half square triangles. I think it is a great backdrop for the rest of the furnishings. I’d love to make a quilt in neutrals for myself using half square triangles!

    —Billie C. on October 29, 2013

  • J’Adore quilt is awesome. It’s exactly what I’m drawn to when I’m picking colors, so subtle. Love, love, love.

    —Margaret Fitzgerald on October 29, 2013
  • I have always thought of neutrals as bland, but ‘Road Trip" certainly changed my mind – they aren’t dull and drab at all when used in the right conbination.

    —Jill on October 29, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for me to practice finding the value of the fabric I use. Then I will most likely give is away to friend, relative or charity. I’m glad that you said this was a random drawing as I could never write the clever answers I have read before. And who knows, I was quite lucky on the golf course today so this could be my lucky day for winning the neutral bundles.

    —Janet on October 29, 2013

    —DJ Weston on October 29, 2013
  • Definitely myself, but my husband would love it too. I love shades of taupe and gray, beautiful by themselves, but they also play nicely with "traditional" colors. For myself, I find those colors to be the most peaceful and relaxing.

    —Mary Schmidt on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to use this material to make a Duvet cover for the futon I have in my craft room. It would be a rich blend of neutrals that would warm up the decor.

    —Jan on October 29, 2013
  • Thank you Pat for the wake-up call! The very first homework assignment when I took my first "color" class was to create an all neutral quilt. It was a great exercise and fun too. For a while I had been collecting neutrals, and wanted a wide palette to work with. In the meantime have let myself get distracted with other projects. After seeing this site, I’m inspired to meet the challenge of creating a piece based on values, not color!

    —Janet Frank on October 29, 2013
  • I would make it for myself since nerarly all of the quilts I have made so far have been gifts for relatives and friends. I would like to start keeping some of the quilts for myself now.

    Kay D on October 29, 2013

    —Gramma on October 29, 2013
  • Would love some inspiration anew on the subject of "neutrals." I have lots of fabrics in my stash that I need to concentrate on using – neutrals might be the best way to develop new patterns to tie them together.

    A strong neutral can tie anything together – from painted walls, floors, etc., to a nice covering on furniture as well.

    I would definitely like to try some of the ideas in this book.

    —Diane Muchow on October 29, 2013

    —claudia on October 29, 2013
  • OK, I’m raising my hand. *I* AM that person who runs around the quilt shop asking for help picking my colors out for a quilt pattern. LOL

    To answer your question, I would definitely make a neutral quilt for myself – or maybe a better answer would be that I’d make it for our living room and whomever chose to grab it while watching TV.

    Neutrals are one thing I am extremely short on in my fabric stash, other than white. If I win I only hope you’ll be choosing the fabrics I’ll win. LOL (Kidding really since it says what we’ll be winning above (whew)

    —VickiT on October 29, 2013
  • I love the idea of all neutrals after doing a quilt so totaly saturated in color to do neutrals would be like cleansing the palate. One of my grandsons could be the receiptant of one of these.

    —Kathy Spruill on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to sew with the Neutrals. Thanks for the chance 🙂

    —Donna on October 29, 2013

    —mary ann on October 29, 2013

    —Loretta on October 29, 2013

    —Susan Edwards on October 29, 2013
  • This book would be perfect for me. Choosing fabrics is the part I agonize over when I want to make a new quilt. I have put off for years making a new quilt for my bed because I cannot pick out the fabrics that I want to use. Thanks for the chance to win this book and fabric.

    —Renea on October 29, 2013

  • Your neutral quilts are fabulous, nothing bland about them. If I were to win, I would give the quilt to my brother.

    —Sherryl on October 29, 2013
  • I’ve always incorporated neutral fabrics into my quilts to balance out the colours I’ve chosen, however I haven’t yet made a quilt just with neutrals. Most people in my quilting group don’t like neutrals and call them "dull". How wrong they are! I have struggled occasionally with the concept of "value" (having not been taught this – note to self, must do something about that). I’d like to make a quilt using only neutrals and think the designs in Pat’s book are wonderful. With all the colour and noise in my life I think a little bit of balance that comes from using neutrals will be just the thing for my next project. And of course this quilt would be just for me as I’m always giving my quilts away – most of them are given to charity and my latest batch have been for cancer patients in my little country town, here in NSW Australia.

    —Ros Bickford on October 29, 2013
  • I love, love, love neutrals. In my opinion, the simplicity of the neutral colors makes the pattern stand out and the quilt even more beautiful. This one would be more me. Thanks so much for your talent!

    —Cynthia Fitch on October 29, 2013
  • I would like to try neutral, I’ve always loved the softness of how the quilts look.

    —Norma Loveless on October 29, 2013
  • The iridescent orange of my flower will look much better with a neutral stem between it and the brilliant spring green of the leaves. I’m just not certain if it should be a pale tan or what.

    —Judy Nicholson on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to have this book. There is so much that I want to learn about using solids in quilts. Using solids make beautiful quilts.

    —Mary M on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral for my place at the lake. I really love the "mist" and “J’Adore". I have always been drawn to neutrals but afraid to attempt it. This gives me true inspiration!

    Valerie Jones on October 29, 2013
  • I love the natural look and it just goes with everything. I would really like one for myself.

    —Kay S on October 29, 2013

    —Cherrell Robinson on October 29, 2013
  • A friend and I bought a pattern each and made the same quilt, I used all bright colours and she used all neutrals,(which I would never have picked at the time). My friends quilt finished looked spectacular, the quilts looked so different that another friend thought we had used different patterns.

    —Christine on October 29, 2013
  • I could make every one of the quilts for me and my family.
    I teach at several quilt shops and could promote the book.
    Thank you,
    Mary

    —Mary Clark on October 29, 2013

    Shasta on October 29, 2013
  • WOW! Pat’s quilts are awesome. I just started "Sunnyside" in"Spotlight on Neutrals" and planning on "HavenStone" next. Looks like I might have to change my plans. Love Backporch Basket Pillow and her new book is definitely on my "must have list" Pat’s books will be an inspiration to many quilters besides me. You rock, Pat!

    —Madeleine on October 29, 2013
  • I have been toying with the idea of a "neutral" quilt for quite a while and now here’s the book to show me how. My daughter and her husband have a very sophisticated colour scheme in there bedroom.
    she has asked me to make a quilt for them. The colours would include pearl white, off white, greys and perhaps black.

    —Patricia Hersl on October 29, 2013
  • I’d love to make one for my beloved sister Monica, who has beautiful taste and a kind heart; she’s always making things for others, instead of herself.

    —Alice Kane on October 29, 2013
  • I am a beginning quilter and found choosing the different depths of color to be most challenging when selecting fabric for my first quilt. I think your idea of a neutral quilt would be a good learning tool for me. I will add it to my list of "things to make."

    —Susan on October 29, 2013

  • Who knew neutrals could be so beautiful?!?! My sister-in-law is rather formal (as opposed to myself who isn’t!) would probably love a neutral design for a quilt. And it looks like neutrals would make good "guy quilts" also. Lovely book and lovely fabrics. Who wouldn’t want to win them?

    —Karen L. on October 29, 2013

    —Janey Cook on October 29, 2013
  • I really need to make a totally neutral quilt, just to give my poor overworked Featherweight machine a chance to cool off after all my very colorful quilts. The older I get, the more I want to get into these calmer colors, but would need the assistance of a very well written guide, which this book would give. Many thanks for the chance to win!!

    —Ele W. on October 29, 2013
  • I love color. But after reading this post and studying the pictures I have to admit that there is a lot to be said for the tone-on-tone of these neutral patterns. I would make one for my husband. kathleendotlutzatcomcastdotnet

    —Kathy on October 29, 2013

    —Mindy on October 29, 2013
  • I adore neutrals and would love a whole quilt of them. I’ve never felt it was possible to make such beautiful quilts from all neutrals. I want to make one for myself. No, that’s a lie.. I want to make three of them ! I’m putting your book on my must have list. Thanks for the chance to win it !!

    —Wendy A on October 29, 2013

    Ruth Yoder on October 29, 2013

Now I can think of a list of people though and actually have that on my to-do list… neutral quilt (creams, beiges, tans nothing too dark though but lots of medium a bit of light/white and only the perfect darks, so I want a neutral neutral…rofl).

    —Tonie Peterson on October 29, 2013
  • MYSELF !!!I love the look of neutral quilts but I am one of those people who doesn’t quite get value. I’m not confident but Pat’s book sounds interesting and I’m definitely putting it on my must have list. Of course winning it would leave me a little more cash to purchase neutral fabrics 🙂 I’ll keep my fingers crossed but I’ll also put Knockout Neutrals on my Christmas list.

    —Donna Hawley on October 29, 2013
  • The guests who visit my guest room would get the benefit of a neutral quilt. It would look lovely in there; now I just need to make one! And winning this prize would be a great incentive.

    —Carol Vickers on October 29, 2013
  • I like neutrals… haven’t made a quilt of just neutrals, but would love to try. If I do make one, I’m not sure if I’d keep it for myself or make it as a donation to the local V.A. hospital or give it as a gift to a family member – decisions, decisions.

    —Tesuque on October 29, 2013
  • My mom is teaching me to quilt-I would love to make a lap quilt for her as a surprise. She has recently redone her home & neutrals and smokey gray blues would be perfect!

    —Lisa Wilcox on October 29, 2013
  • A few years ago, I was commissioned to make one of the most colorful quilts I make (a Storm-at-Sea pattern). When the gentleman received the quilt, he questioned how many colors were in the quilt? I was shocked to find out he was color-blind and couldn’t enjoy all those bright colors.

    Heading back to neutrals, I have experienced simplicity and elegance. Even some of my scrappy neutrals quilts still receive the "Oh WOW" comments! Love all your ideas and look forward to trying some of your patterns!!!

    —Ann B on October 29, 2013
  • Myself! I’m a new quilter and have trouble with choosing colors. Absolutely love these neutrals quilts!!!!

    —Ann L. on October 29, 2013

    —Marilyn on October 29, 2013

    —Doris White on October 29, 2013
  • I’d make a neutral quilt for my husband. He’s so patient with my quilting and does the ooh and aah thing very appropriately. After over 15 years of suffering my quilting messes, joys, frustrations and manic journeys of discovery, it’s probably time for me to make one just for him!

    Tracy in SW WA on October 29, 2013
  • Oh my gosh–this book is aptly named–these quilts ARE knockouts! I see several that I want to make for myself and a couple that my sons would love to receive. Thanks for the chance to win an awesome book!

    —Donna Hendricks on October 29, 2013
  • While I’m not at all afraid of color, I find the neutrals soothing and cozy. I would make one of these quilts for myself. I take care of children of all ages and have for almost 40 yrs. I’ve made lots of colorful quilts for them too. Having a quilt that offers some "quiet" time and space would be wonderful!! Thanks for the beauty they offer!!

    —Grace Kramer on October 29, 2013
  • I always thought Neutrals were just that, but looking at Pat Wys quilts makes me realise they do have a little colour in them. I would love to make a couple – one for myself and one for my family – who farm.

    —Sue White on October 29, 2013
  • I love the idea of learning value by the use of neutrals. Would really be grateful to win. "Feels Like Home" has such an appeal and I would like to make this for me. Hope the usual doesn’t happen,, someone comes in and admire’s it and then I’m giving it away and kicking myself.

    —Carol Y on October 29, 2013

    —Cheryl on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutrals quilt for my husband and myself. I love neutrals and do wear them a lot, just never thought about making a quilt with them as I am new into quilting and got caught up in the color wheel challenge. I am sure I would enjoy the book very much!

    Jean DONKER on October 29, 2013
  • I need to make one of these for my best quilting friend who lost all her fabrics, patterns, etc; when her house was flooded last spring. It was agonizing putting all her treasures in the trash and I am doing my best to help her replenish her stash and collection of quilts. These are lovely and any one of them would be perfect in her new apartment.

    —Dianne on October 29, 2013
  • I would make one for myself. I already have 2, one that my mother made and one that my grandmother made. I’d love to add one of my own – I use the ones they made, but I worry about them since they aren’t around to make anymore.

    —Lynn D in NC on October 29, 2013
  • "Neutral" doesn’t mean it has to have that blah, washed out look anymore! I would love to have a neutral quilt for myself especially in the tan to brown tones.

    —Susan Kellam on October 29, 2013

  • I’d love to make a neutral quilt for my daughter. She is still clinging to the "only wearing black" from High school, but now that she’ll be graduating from college, her tastes need to sophisticate up! Neutrals would be perfect!

    I had a lot of fun a couple of years ago, travelling to local quilt shops looking for "neutral batiks" I’d love to have a catalog of the looks I got from the ladies on the other side of the counter in the shops!

    —Joan Jakubowski on October 29, 2013

  • Love the projects in the book. Would love to win it.

    —Anna Reidt on October 29, 2013
  • Love the neutrals, many quilts are too LOUD and others too pale. I enjoy playing with color and textures, but still trying to share values and hues with others w/o pulling bolts and bolts for show n tell ????

    —Tracy DVR on October 29, 2013
  • What timing… I don’t need to win the book because I just bought it last week on a shop hop. I’m going to make "Feels Like Home" for my guild’s "15 Shades of Gray" challenge. The quilt will be for ME! Would still love a chance for one of the neutral bundles. Thanks!

    —Tammy on October 29, 2013
  • I love neutrals but have not had the chance of using any. My dining rm is in neutrals and doing a table runner would look really nice. Even the study could use a neutral quilt….Hope to win and get busy!

    —karen chilkewitz on October 29, 2013

    —Sherry Ellis on October 29, 2013
  • I want to make a quilt suitable for my son. These are lovely quilts and colors; anyone would like. I am not a fan of the modern brightly colored fabrics.

    —Christine Nicholson on October 29, 2013
  • Have been adding to my neutral fabrics in hopes of creating a quilt done in this pallet. Can never have too many and after seeing the samples here, it is inspiring me to start planning anew quilt for the living room in our new home.If Iwere to win these fabrics Icould start it now and possibly have it ready to use about the same time our new home is ready for us to move into it.

    —Cindy on October 29, 2013

  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for my brother. We will be together for Christmas this year for the first time in 15 years and I would like him to have a quilt that his sister made just for him.

    —Donna Knapp on October 29, 2013
  • Neutrals are my color palette! I like to piece a patchwork background of neutrals, then applique a medallion on top of it. The last one I did was my fall wallhanging of branches with apples and leaves on the neutral patchwork.

    —Wilma Searcy on October 29, 2013
  • Love those neutrals! I would make a quilt for hubby & me – we deserve one!

    —kathy on October 29, 2013
  • Love the soft creamy look of the neutrals!

    —Diane Martin on October 29, 2013
  • There’s something unique and magical about these neutral quilts–a special way of looking at their ‘color’ and adding a new skill set is reason to try one of these beautiful quilts! I love all the project shown!

    —Valerie on October 29, 2013
  • I am currently making a neutral quilt for my brother. It’s black, white, and shades of gray, and it is pretty simple, but it’s fun to figure out where to place the blacks and grays relative to each other.

    —Karen Seitz on October 29, 2013
  • I made a neutral quilt for my son and is wife for a house warming gift. It was for a queen size bed. Turned out so nice I think I would like to have one of my own. Your tans and browns are a good choice.

    —Sheila on October 29, 2013
  • I would love any of the quilts and table runners that were shown from the book. I would enjoy making them for me and then passing them down to my children, so they can enjoy them.

    —Diane Malaznik on October 29, 2013
  • I have always loved neutrals – so calming. I believe I would make one for my daughter and son-in-law. Finding a "color" that he would like or approve is daunting, to say the least, but I think using just different shades of neutrals might be just the way to go. Hope I win!

    —Deborah DeBerry on October 29, 2013
  • As a new quilter I am finding I am more attracted to traditional quilts and their warm neutral colors then to the modern quilts with their bright colors. I would most definitely have to make a neutral quilt for me and my family. All the projects in this book are gorgeous….there are several that I would love to make. Thank you for sharing!

    —Angelia L. on October 29, 2013

  • Would love to make a neutral quilt for myself. Am just finishing up a king size quilt for a family member – I’m next on my list [unless another relative puts in a request first]. "Knockout Neutrals" looks really interesting as do the neutral fabrics – would be fun to give both a try.

    —D. L. Grzybowski on October 29, 2013

    —Connie Hendryx on October 29, 2013
  • I think a neutral quilt would make a great wedding gift, but for now I would probably made a bed quilt for me and my husband.

    —Pamela Reim on October 29, 2013
  • I can’t think of anyone who would enjoy a "neutral" quilt more than my son-in-law, Brian, or my grandson, Corey (I’d probably go with my grandson!). Brian’s very much interested in natural colors — his home reflects his love of browns, tans, dark browns, natural fabrics and materials (including dark woods combined with granite in the kitchen). The biggest problem I have is my own unfamiliarity with how to combine and choose neutrals!

    —Sue Chapman on October 29, 2013
  • Two of my children will be getting married next summer and I have been looking for ideas for wedding quilts–I see possibilities here as they both like grey/black! Hope you pick me!!!!

    —Joy Bradley on October 29, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for myself, because I made one for my husband for his birthday. I have never made a quilt for myself, and I was so happy with his that I had quilt envy. I’m very inspired by the designs in the book and the use of non-colors.

    mandy laseter on October 29, 2013
  • Would love one for myself!! I forgot how beautiful neutrals are!!!

    —Toni on October 29, 2013

  • I’m on of those who can’t seem to choose colors with much success, but working with neutrals also sounds very challenging, and I’m open to a new challenge. Who knows, maybe I’ll find my quilting identity! I would make a neutral quilt for my daughter, who is getting married in a little over a month. She loves neutrals and vintage looks. She would love it!

    —Barb on October 29, 2013

    —Kathy Adair on October 29, 2013
  • I love those Neutral quilts and have the first book. I’d make a quilt for ME because I love them and they match any wood, and most colors; I’d have a quilt that actually went with my rooms! Wish me luck!

    —Marilyn Teskey on October 29, 2013
  • My son loves black and natural quilts. I actually plan to make him and his wife a really striking wall hanging with black and all sorts of neutrals. I just need to finish my niece’s graduation gift. Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Bonnie on October 29, 2013
  • I have been saving shades of creams and tans for a nuetral quilt for myself-this book would be great to use to showcase my nuetrals. I would love to win.

    —Marion Kersnick on October 29, 2013
  • Hi,
    I immediately loved the “J’Adore” quilt and would love to make TWO for the beds in my guest room. It looks delicate and pretty for ladies, and neutral and "non-girly" for men visitors.
    Thankyou for the opportunity to win this book!

    —Anne on October 29, 2013
  • Me, myself and I! All three of us love the calming affect of neutral quilts.

    —Paula D on October 29, 2013
  • I love the neutrals! They go with my home color scheme. We put in tile floor and I need to make some quilted wall hangings to help absorb sound. These colors are perfect. The book has some great options.

    —Helena C Villa on October 29, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for my daughter who is getting married next year. The traditional colors for a chuppa is blue and white but I love the neutrals and would make her canopy using traditional Jewish Designs, blues and neutral colors. I would take bits and pieces from the book and intergrate it into the chuppa that could later be used as a bed quilt or wall hanging.

    —Shell2u on October 29, 2013
  • I adore neutral colors. I never have been a fan of bright colors, but neutral colors have a quiet, calming effect anywhere they’re placed. I made my daughter a neutral quilt for Christmas last year and she absolutely loves it. I have several ideas for others in my future (myself included). No matter your "color" preference…keep on stitching 🙂

    —Cheryl L on October 29, 2013
  • My daughter is having the whole family over for Christmas Holidays, I know she has a couple beds without a quilt yet, and a neutral quilt would look lovely in her newly painted bedroom. Bring on the fabrics. K

  • I’d love to make the Road Trip quilt — or any of them, they are so beautiful — for my sewing mentor at Quilt Works San Francisco. Thanks for correcting my view of "neutrals" as boring.

    —Jan Jegi on October 29, 2013
  • I must confess I never knew the definition of neutral until now (any color not on the color wheel). That one statement totally opened my eyes about how to use these ‘colors’. I will definitely make a quilt for myself first, then my niece who also likes ‘no color’.

    Nancy on October 29, 2013
  • I must admit I did not really know the definition on a neutral until now- any color not on the color wheel. That has totally opened my eyes about how to combine these fabrics for an interesting quilt. I would make the first quilt for myself, then one for a niece who also likes the ‘lack of color’ look.

    —Nancy on October 29, 2013
  • I love the colors! they are so cozy and can be matched to any décor. I would love to make one for each of my children as wedding gifts!

    —Linda on October 30, 2013
  • I would love the blessings of having this book and the fabric as I’m starting to quilt, a tradition in my family that goes back many, many generations. I have a grandson due to make his arrival in January 2014 and the neutral colors I feel would be so fitting as I continue the family quilting tradition.

    Ann Symes on October 30, 2013
  • WOW! Neutrals really can be dazzling! What a fun and creative book of the most amazing ways to bring neutrals to life! La Belle Fleur and Back Porch Basket are so charming and for me Arboretum and Feels Like Home are simply stunning!

    —Karan on October 30, 2013

    —Darlene on October 30, 2013
  • Awesome quilts! I love the idea of neutral quilts – focus is on the pattern, not the fabric! Great concept, and great book!

    —Karen on October 30, 2013

    —Nancy on October 30, 2013
  • A neutral quilt will be great for my friend Barb. She built a house and has decided that beige is the color for her. I want to show her that she can jazz up beige a bit and it is not scary!

    —Kary Heck on October 30, 2013
  • I’d like to make a neutral quilt for me–who knew they could be so gorgeous! I love Pat’s quote "I have found pondering it is best done while sewing, and it pays to have chocolate nearby" and I intend to do a lot of pondering from now on!

    —Diana on October 30, 2013
  • I have always loved including black in my quilts. I have not thought about making a totally nuetral quilt, but looking at the things in your book has inspired me to try this. This fabric, thread, and book would be just what I need to get started to make for myself. Thanks for this opportunity to put my name in the mix.

    —Margaret Shaw on October 30, 2013

    —Carol Gearey on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for my husband. Last weekend he went to a new quilt shop with me and immediately focused on a neutral quilt and told the shop owner that it was his favorite in the shop. A neutral quilt would make a very nice Christmas gift. There’s still time! 🙂

    —Darlene Fontaine on October 30, 2013

  • For myself, I love the neutral quilts, they go with anything.

    —Laura Loecken on October 30, 2013
  • This is what I need. I am that person in the shop who wants help with color. I am that person who thought neutrals were "drab and dull" but these quilts prove that isn’t true. Now, just send me the book and the material & I will learn all about neutrals!

    —Sheryl on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make a quilt for my 51 year old son and his fiance. Neither one has been married before and the wedding date is Nov 30, 2013. I love the look of the quilts in the book and I believe a neutral quilt would be perfect in their new home. I am so pleased for both of them

    —venita on October 30, 2013
  • I spend too much time I think trying to make colors work together. I never thought to work with neutrals only. I very much appreciate the encouragement Pat Wys extends. I would begin quilting with neutrals for myself and then for family members.
    Thank you for your consideration.

    —Marlene Monroe on October 30, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for myself. I find neutral quilts to be soothing, gentle visions of beauty. I want to make a quilt to hang in my entry way so that everytime I come home from a busy, hectic, often stressful day, I am immediatly greeted with a sense of calm and quiet. I can also be given the chance to leave home and start my day with the same feelings.

    —Lynn on October 30, 2013
  • After seeing the beautiful neutral quilts in this post, I’m definitely going to make one for myself!

    —Linda Webster on October 30, 2013

    —Marie Chat on October 30, 2013
  • I’ve been collecting fabrics for a while to make a neutral quilt for a friend who is color blind and keeps everything in his home and his clothing to the neutral palette. I’m hoping to choose a pattern and finish it by his birthday in February.

    —Donna S. on October 30, 2013
  • Myself! I need a new quilt and I love neutrals.

    —Sharon on October 30, 2013
  • OK, you’ve convinced me. I’m one of those "I’m so bad with colors" people! I’ll make a neutral quilt as a learning experience. I don’t know who the recipient will be – I’ll see who needs a quilt when I’m done!

    —Barb Johnson on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make one of these quilts for my father. My father lost his wife (my stepmom who I loved very much)almost 1 year ago. Although he is only 75, due to an accident, he can not take care of himself. I live in Oklahoma and he is in Ohio , so I can not be there to spend as much time with him as I would like. He is a neutral’s kind of guy and I am sure that he would love to have a quilt from his oldest daughter. I will be making one for him but this would be perfict.

    —Tina Sheppard on October 30, 2013
  • I’d make a neutral quilt for my husband and I – the word neutral always conjures up bland, and yet when I look at neutral fabrics, I LOVE them!!! So much to look at and so truly soul-warming!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make one for my daughter…something different for her!!

    —Bernadette Schultz on October 30, 2013
  • I love the "Back Porch Basket" pillow. The darling prints all in neutral are wonderful. And it would be mine, all mine. Thank you.

    —Marsha Nelson on October 30, 2013
  • Myself! The neutrals look sophisticated and classy.

    —Kathy Gant on October 30, 2013
  • I’d make a neutral quilt for my dad – since we lost mom, he’s kind of adrift, and having a mild form of dementia doesn’t help. Mom crocheted lots of afghans, but the 2 that she left him are too girly – and, with winter coming up, he needs something "manly" to keep him warm. Having something warm that his daughter made would keep his heart as well as his body warm!

    Jannette Binder on October 30, 2013
  • Absolutely love them all. I too love neutrals, have made a few. One was a very I was very happy with the result, as were the bride and groom special wedding gift, as I had no idea of what colours they liked.

    —Wanda on October 30, 2013
  • My favorite niece is getting married. She asked for neutrals when I quizzed her about colors for a wedding quilt. I’ve never done a neutral color scheme and could use all the help I can get!

    —Paula on October 30, 2013
  • Wow!! I would love to make one of these quilts for myself. They are spectacular!

    —Doris Cardno on October 30, 2013
  • Neutrals are my warm fuzzy colors. They go with every kind of decor and make me feel like I’m home. I’d love to make a quit for ME! instead of the children or grandchildren, husbands, etc that have been gifted before. I think it’s about my turn. It looks like a perfectly wonderful book! Thanks.

    —Jennifer P on October 30, 2013
  • I have wanted to make a neutral quilt for so long….Maybe it will be my turn to win!!!!

    —Pam Bricher on October 30, 2013
  • Pat…I so enjoyed your presentation at Piecemakers in Saginaw MI. I too love neutrals and have made a couple of neutral quilts I especially love your bed runner. Happy Quilting!

    —Ruth on October 30, 2013
  • Yes to neutrals and yes to chocolate!! I tried to enter my comments on a smartphone on the bus; my suggestion don’t try. Hopefully this time I will be successful. I never knew I was working in neutrals, which just proves one can always learn something new. I love neutrals because they can go with so many decorating schemes. I tend to make neutral quilts for wedding gifts, but stick to the brights for babies. I enjoy these blogs – thanks.

    —Mary Jordan on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for my daughter-in-law whose bedroom is done in neutrals. I would also love to win Pat’s 2nd book for ideas.

    —Betty Jo on October 30, 2013
  • I would make a neutral quilt for my husband. He has terminal brain cancer and wont be around much longer. He likes things all the same color. He wears black shorts and black shirt every day of his life, even to plow the snow with the snow blower so am sure he would love it.

    —Jacque on October 30, 2013
  • I have been exploring neutrals for 2 years now and there is an endless array of projects yet to be made. Love love love the thought of winning some neutrals from Stof and a book too! Too wonderful to imagine. I would have to make a quilt for my studio wall, of course!

    —Judyd on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for my son and daughter in law. They’ve just bought a very modern new house, and I think it would soften the lines of the home’s interior.

    —Sandi on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for myself to drap over the back of my couch and to cuddle under when I take a break. In all the years I have be quilting, I have not make a quilt just for myself. The “J’Adore” quilt is the one I would make for myself; but there are other quilts in "Knockout Neutrals" I would like to make for family and friends.

    —Elizabeth P. on October 30, 2013
  • I love choosing colors but I love these neutral quilts!!!

    —Becca on October 30, 2013

    —pam on October 30, 2013
  • I made a neutral/cream/beige string quilt a few years ago in a class and kept it for myself. It had to be one of the most stunning quilts I have ever made! I have been dying to make another one and now maybe this is the reason to do it! These quilts are all just gorgeous!! Maybe this time I would try something in black and white!

    —Mary T. on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make myself a neutral quilt. Love shades of browns, tans, taupe’s. My favorites. I still haven’t done a quilt for myself and I am pretty sure it will be a neutral quilt. It goes with everything. Of course my dearest friend will want to abscond with it LOL. She loves neutrals as well

    —Kathleen Maki on October 30, 2013
  • I’d love to make it for the in-laws who would will it back to me, as that is how the mom-in-law likes to do it. They are great in-laws, super kind.

    —Lauralee Hensley on October 30, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral colored quilt for my mom. She just loves all of those browns. When I was young, she taught me to sew and had all the patience in the world teaching me sewing things. I was just telling her last week how I remember once when I accidentally cut right down the center of the front of a dress that was cut on the fold. She just had me add an accent piece right down the front and put decorative buttons on it. I remember her always saying how great sewing was, because you could just rip it out and start all over if you didn’t like it. Now she has dementia, but still "lights up" when I tell her I’m sewing something or bring out the sewing machine.

    —Alice Hourihan on October 30, 2013
  • I love neutral quilts. When I look at a pattern I often photocopy the colour version to see if it is the quilt design or the colouration that draws me. If it is the design I know it will look fantastic in neutrals. All the patterns in Pat’s new book are fantastic but the first I would make would be the runner in the first picture of this post and that would be for me. Neutral quilts go with everyone’s décor so you’ve always made the right fabric choices. They are just awesome.

    —Audrey on October 30, 2013
  • Love the look of neutrals and I need a new quilt. Have Pat’s first book and would love to add the 2nd one to my library. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I would make one for my brother. He just purchased his first home and it could use some homey touches.

    —Melissa on October 30, 2013
  • I absolutely need to make a neutral quilt. I just love the basket pillow. I love the color blue so when I go into a fabric store I am drawn to the blues, but how many blues can I have. After looking at all of these projects, I definately need to go where the neutrals are. It really make a stunning quilt that can enhance almost any decor be it country or modern and many other styles.

    —Linda Finkelstein on October 30, 2013

    —Lillian Rose on October 31, 2013
  • This post on neutrals spoke to me. Being a new quilted (3 yrs)- I find myself asking for help with choosing Colors of fabrics. Even with the help; I never feel like it works. So I find myself choosing patterns already quilted and on display. I loved all of the quilts on this newsletter. An enjoyable and thought provoking read.

    Loved it. – Geri

  • I love these neutral colors and your designs Pat are wonderful. I would really enjoy your book and fabrics. My husband would really enjoy the neutral look.
    Thank You

    —Terri Cochran on October 31, 2013
  • My hubby! Then, I’m sure he’d share. 😉 I’ve wanted to make a neutral quilt for a long time now. Thanks a bunch for the giveaway and the chance to win!

    —Maree on October 31, 2013

    —Micki on October 31, 2013
  • I’m one of those quilter’s whose head spins over the word ‘value’. I’d love to make an all neutral quilt for me. I love creams, golds and browns anyway so it would be perfect for me.

    —Terri O on October 31, 2013
  • At the risk of sounding selfish, "Who would I like to make a neutral quilt for? The answer is MYSELF. I don’t get that many quilts made, and your patterns are really beautiful. I would just love to make one of your neutral quilts. Congratulations on your new book! I really like your patterns 🙂

    —Jody Warner on October 31, 2013
  • I seriously need that book! I would make the quilt for me, first, then probably give it away. Most quilts start out as something I want to do, which means I’m making it to please myself, then I know it just "has" to go to "so-and-so". Quilting is a gift I give to myself, by using my God-given talent to make something from "nothing", and then I give it to others, because that is what I feel I am destined to do with that talent. It’s my way of contributing to the world. It validates me. But I have such a hard time buying neutrals, the colors all scream at me, while the neutrals just wait patiently for me to realize that I need them. This would be so nice…………

    —Madeline on October 31, 2013
  • I really like neutrals. Last year I saw a kit that was made with all neutrals and I loved it! I also love your bed runner and the matching pillow! The contrast of the black and white quilts are also stunning! I would love to get more ideas and instruction to find out why I love neutrals!

    —Michele on October 31, 2013
  • I’d make a neutral quilt for my daughter. She has a very busy life right now with 3 young children and another baby on the way. She works full time as an Art teacher so she would really appreciate a gift like this. Thank you……Judy Eveleth

    —Judy Eveleth on October 31, 2013
  • I have the perfect fabric at home now and would love to apply it to any one of the quilts listed from this book. How beautiful neutrals can be.

    —Mary Bruemmer on October 31, 2013

    —Karen Markin on October 31, 2013
  • I have three boys and a husband who would love to have any one of these quilts. The get a little tired of the brights and florals I like. I think my husband would receive the first one!

    —Susan K on October 31, 2013
  • These are great! How would you pick? I’m learning neutrals.

    Becky Ball on October 31, 2013

    —Sheila Mixdorf on October 31, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt. I have no idea who it would be for, and I have no idea what fabric I’d use, but I’ve been lusting after the ones I’ve seen for months. I think I need to finally head the inclination and get this book and fabric to make one. THanks so much for the inspiration.

    —KayM on October 31, 2013

    —Alice on October 31, 2013
  • This would be perfect for my stepdaughter. I would love to make one for her. Maybe one for me too 🙂

    —Crystal on October 31, 2013
  • Neutrals have alot of color and movement in them. When placed together they show a true beauty that we normally don’t ‘see’ because we are always searching for lots of color! I would love to read the book and examine how I can use neutrals in new and exciting ways.

    —QuiltedPigs on October 31, 2013
  • I would make a neutral quilt for myself – I have so many colors in my home already that I would have trouble making one that fit my house otherwise.

    —Karen Cohn on October 31, 2013
  • I love neutrals, and the neutral quilt I want to make is for ME! And I really WANT that book! I am one of the librarians for my local quilt guild, and this book will be right at home — after a detour to my best armchair, that is.

    —Carol Barringer on October 31, 2013
  • WoW! Such gorgeous quilts! I would love to make neutrals quilt for myself, it’s ok right? hehe.

    —Shirley Harrison on November 1, 2013
  • I would make a neutral quilt for my daughter. It would fit with the decor in her home, and she like to get quilts from dad. 🙂

    —Mike glahn on November 1, 2013
  • My son and his wife have to move often due to his Navy requirements. Altho’ they have their own furniture, the houses they rent at each duty station have varying color schemes. A neutral color quilt would add warmth and hominess wherever they are stationed.

    Margery Holsather on November 1, 2013
  • Can always use more nautrals.
    Those are some very interesting quilts.

    —Paulette Doerhoff on November 1, 2013
  • I have never quilted before but would like to make a quilt for my son and new daughter in law. They just painted a new home with neutral colors. Greys and blue mostly. So I think this would be the best for me to start with that they would enjoy. Thanks

    cindy seiple on November 1, 2013
  • I would make a neutral quilt for my sister! She is very artistic and the type of person who can change the look of a room or her house whenever the whim strikes her without breaking a sweat! I think a neutral quilt would look great in her decor, and would be flexible enough to go with the flow of her creative decorating!

    —Roberta on November 1, 2013
  • I love what you have done with neutrals. I’ve never worked with just them but I am ready to start. They are so pleasing to the eye. My home could use an update with color. I would love to win your book and fabric to get me started.

    —Kathy on November 1, 2013
  • I love neutrals! I just finished one. It was a challenge, and now that I see how it came out, and see yours, I am inspired to make more! These colors work so well with m y house, I could practically use it in any room!

    Neutrals are so pleasing because "people bring color into our house!"

    —joan on November 1, 2013
  • My Mum and Dad, who like creams and nutural brown tones in their bedroom, after all the love and devotion to looking after me in so many various ways it would be nice to design and make a very special quilt for them. Perhaps as a special golden wedding gift in a few years time.

    —Jenny Crossland on November 1, 2013
  • I would make a neutral-themed quilt for the 2014 AAUW-IL state convention. Though AAUW is non-partisan, its members are not neutral in their passion to break through barriers on behalf of woman and girls!

    Nann on November 1, 2013
  • I love the neutral quilts but I’m a little afraid of them too. I’ve been collecting a few fabrics so perhaps it’s time to get brave and get quilting — a neutral quilt. Thanks for the opportunity. (And this one would be for me.)

    —BusybButtons on November 1, 2013
  • I don’t think tans, grays, black and white are neutrals. I call them "the essentials". You can add them to anything to tone it down a bit too. I love gray especially. Good luck everyone.

    —CindyM on November 1, 2013
  • I love the look of neutrals and would love to make myself a quilt out of neutrals. I think my middle daughter would like one too.

    —Nancy Angerer on November 1, 2013

    —marie on November 1, 2013
  • How exciting … Being neutral myself, I like, like, like neutrals.

    —Barbara on November 1, 2013
  • I just bought your book and looking forward to getting it in the next three days (free shipping with Prime!). But if I by chance do win, I’ll keep the bundle of fabric and give my book to my best quilting friend. We have been wanting to make a neutrals quilt for a long time and just never seem to have the time to start another quilt project.

  • I’d love neutrals. They seem to have a calming influence, and I could use some quiet time.

    —Mary on November 1, 2013
  • Of course I’d be making the quilt for myself! For a hanging on the landing leading down to my office, I’d like to use black, grey and possibly a cream with white. Could be so sophisticated.

    Linda Carlson on November 1, 2013
  • Have peach-colored walls – neutral colors would be perfect.

    —JoAnn on November 1, 2013

    —Cindy S on November 1, 2013
  • I think I’ve OD’d on strong colors and am ready for some neutrals. 🙂 Would love to be the lucky winner!

    Linny on November 1, 2013
  • The quilts are great, would love to make one for me or maybe my daughter.

    —Sandy Curtis on November 1, 2013
  • I have been thinking about making a neutral quilt for my oldest grandson for his high school graduation. He is color blind and a bit self conscience about it, so a lovely nuetral quilt would work and he could take it to college. He is so special and I want him to know he is loved by his Grandma.

    —Marjorie on November 1, 2013
  • I would love to try making a neutral quilt for… myself. 🙂 I really like the idea of being able to learn more about choosing and using values.

  • I love neutral quilts so I would probably make one for me 🙂

    —Erin Haugh on November 1, 2013
  • I have never quilted a neutral quilt! I would donate to a family friend who is helping our family during a difficult time. I would make two quilts one for them and one for me.

    —Kerry Grant on November 1, 2013
  • When I was young I was all about brights but as I have gotten older I have been leaning towards neutrals. I think the Road Trip quilt would be beautiful in my living room. But then again it would also look great in my parents house too. Decisions, decisions.

    —Cathy Buck on November 1, 2013
  • I would love to make a neutral quilt for myself! I would make it king size for my room in creams and light browns. I would love to win a copy of Pat’s book.

    Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

    —Jan on November 1, 2013
  • Neutrals can be elegant and simply satisfying in a way that crayon colored quilts cannot match. Would love your book and stash of neutrals. Neutrals are gaining respect and for those who jump onboard, are quite wonderful.

  • Surely, myself

    —Josee on November 1, 2013

  • Oh I would love to win your book. I am wanting to make a quilt that I can use in my motorhome. I can not find the colors that the decorator used some time ago and I think a neutral quilt would be just the answer I have been looking for.

    —Sheilah on November 2, 2013

    —Ann T on November 2, 2013
  • I recently visited Italy and took pictures of as many of the tile floors as I was allowed to photograph. They were all fantastic done in neutral colors. I would love to make a quilt using one or many blocks from some of these designs.

  • Oh, it’s gotta be " ME"!! I’ve got the first pattern picked out ( from Pat’s first book) and some neutrals piled up, but, of course, I need more!! Thanks for the chance!

    —Linda K on November 2, 2013
  • My daughter bought a new sofa (oyster grey) and had a white fluffy piece of fabric laid across the back. "What" said I? Here I am a quilter and have made numerous quilts, including several for her. So I went out and bought what I thought was lovely light grey and dark grey fabric and picked a modern design to make my daughter a quilt. I learned my lesson, because she didn’t like the fabric (not light enough for her), the design wasn’t modern enough and she didn’t want it. SO, I took her to the fabric shop where she selected several white fabrics, several light grey fabrics and I convinced her to select several other medium and deeper greys to use as ‘kicker’ colors. I showed her different patterns and she selected a modern version of a log cabin. It came out stunning and she loved it! Now I need to make a neutral quilt for me to go with a new sofa I am contemplating!

    —Rita Abbott on November 2, 2013
  • What beautiful work…..I would love to try to make any one of these!!!

    —Pat E on November 2, 2013

    —Linda on November 2, 2013
  • I would make a quilt for my son. Neutrals are always OK for masculine styling. Good luck, all!

    —Sandra B on November 2, 2013
  • My husband! It is so frustrating to try and share all the beautiful feminine quilts I see that I would love to create, only to have my husband say he doesn’t like them. It is so difficult to find a quilt that he likes and that I love also. I believe the quilts in these two books of Pat’s fit the bill perfectly. I am sure I could find more than a few patterns that he would not think were ‘too busy’, or ‘too colorful’, or ‘too girlie’ – I do not have to please him in my choices, but I sure would love to find patterns that would ‘hook’ him the way I have been hooked for years. I absolutely love these neutral fabrics and patterns.

    —Susan B. on November 2, 2013
  • I’d make one for myself and each of my children. I love making things for others but am trying to turn a new leaf by keeping something for myself every now and then.

    —Kate on November 3, 2013
  • New to quilting with no idea about color. First quilt was a denim rag with flannel scraps, easy. Second was a red/black/white made for my eldest grandson. Where to go from there? With my current budget (and a desire for lots of fabric 🙂 ) estate/garage sales and the like is where I find most of my fabric selections. Currently working on a GFG, totally scrappy; and hope it all looks okay once completed. Also working on a BOM through a nearby fabric shop but they chose the fabrics & patterns. Next on the list will be a quilt in shades of purple made for a dear friend. Have gathered enough purples, I hope, but realized all those purples alone…..would not look right no matter the pattern. So I’ve picked up four different ‘neutrals’ to mix in and hope all works out.
    Enough of the story, should I be the luck winner, the lucky recipient of a beautiful, warm, neutral quilt……….would be me as I do not like ‘loud’ colors. If I do not win, I’ll end up making one anyway; it would just take a little longer to get to it; I’ve a lot of scrapes to go through. 🙂

    —Iris B on November 3, 2013

    —Karen on November 3, 2013
  • My sister-in-law Robyn. When I found out she likes neutrals, J’Adore immediaty came to mind. Then I took a second look at Caramel Latte and now I can’t decide which one to make. Looking like I’ll have to make both.

    —Debra H on November 3, 2013
  • I think they look so rich and classis. Would love to make one some day even though for me that is totally out of my typical genre! Thank you for the chance. Love Pat’s designs. Jane

    Jane on November 3, 2013

    —Pam O-Kremer on November 3, 2013
  • I would like to make a neutral quilt for a special guy who is on the color sensitive side of almost color-blind. Too much color is lost on him, so the contrasts in the neutral quilts would be more exciting for his taste.

    —Mary McElroy on November 3, 2013
  • These quilts are lovely, very easy on the eyes. It really shows how big a role value plays when designing a quilt.

    —Mary on November 4, 2013
  • I would love to make one for myself, although after it’s done I might decide to give it away. Neutrals would be perfect for a gift when you don’t know the receiver’s color preferences. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • In a couple of weeks I need to start on a quilt that will be donated to the auction of our local children’s home. The proceeds completely go towards caring for children in the DSS system. A neutral quilt will probably draw the interest of the most auction donors, and I’d enjoy making it! Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this giveaway!
