Simplicity

The summer reading for our administrative team this year has been A Quaker Book of Wisdom which is full of wisdom for Quakers and non-Quakers alike, IMNSHO.  Each chapter title has a black and white photograph of a quilt.  The book has nothing to do with quilts, but they certainly do make a pretty chapter title page!

The title photo for the "Simplicity" chapter was particularly appealing.  I tried without success to find out what color the original quilt was and how large it was.

Here is my "Simplicity," in browns and creams.  The finished size is 12" x 13.5".  It is hand quilted.

Sharp. Love the subtle colors in the lighter triangles.

There is elegance in simplicity, and this little quilt is exceedingly elegant! Well done.
