  • I made a neutral quilt many years ago but never made another and don’t know why. They have such a charm and I would love to try my hand at another. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I made a string quilt using only neutral colors and it was one of the most beautiful quilts I ever made! I keep saying I’m going to make another neutral quilt but haven’t yet. Maybe this will be what it takes to get me going!

  • I have never made a neutral quilt because I thought they would be dull and boring…boy was I wrong! These quilts are truly beautiful and I have a wedding quilt to make. For sure it will be in neutrals this time. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  • Love Pat Wys’ quilts and books…hope there are more to come.

  • I have not done one,but after seeing these, I think I will do so,

  • Yes, I have. Tans and whites. Love it! They work in any space. Want to make more, but so much fabric and so little time. Project wish list just keeps growing!!!

    —Pam B on May 31, 2016
  • I haven’t made one…yet. But after seeing all these amazing ones I need to make more than one!

    —Kathie on May 31, 2016
  • Just one, sort of, a strip quilt in greys/white/black and one red strip–I like yours better, next on my list is just black/white.

  • Never… yet! They are so beautiful – the designs show up so much more without the ‘distraction’ of colour. Don’t get me wrong – I love colour – but these examples show off their own beauty without depending on ‘bold and bright’.

    —janG on May 31, 2016
  • black and white quilts with maybe a touch of red are my favorite- have made one and probably have enough fabric collected to make a couple of more!

    —Wendy on June 3, 2016
  • I have not made a neutral quilt, but the ones in this book are beautiful! I want to make one now.

    —Carol Kussart on June 3, 2016
  • Haven’t made a neutral quilt but looking at these I fully intend to: they look so classy!

    —Suzanne on June 3, 2016
  • I’ve been collecting fabrics for beige/cream and blk/gray/white ‘neutral’ quilts. Your photo of the eye-catching neutral pillow appliques got me enthusiastic – and I’m sorting through fabrics now!

    —LINDA on June 3, 2016
  • No, I haven’t yet made one; but do have a couple of patterns to chose one when the time comes. I have to live a very long time to fulfill my quilting wish list.

    —Nancy on June 3, 2016
  • I’m working on the cover quilt from Knockout Neutrals right now. It will be a present for my niece and her new husband. I love all the quilts in the Pat Wys books. Gorgeous!

    —Barbara K on June 3, 2016
  • I love, love, love, love bright bold color, especially in my quilts. But I did make a black, white, and gray table runner, hot pad and napkin set for a wedding gift and I have amassed quite a collection of black and white prints for my daughter’s quilt. She asked for black and white and red …and purple! Not quite neutral, but it will be stunning. My latest project is black and white and red and yellow. It’s hard to resist that pop of color!
