Blogger's Quilt Festival--Tone it Down

I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to participate in the Blogger's Quilt Festival because my blog has been so neglected lately. I started out 2016 planning to participate in the Finish-Along all year, but in February we started the process of deciding and then buying a home and that took up a lot of my time and energy (such an understatement) for 4 or 5 months. We have been in the new (to us) house for almost 3 months, school has started, and things are calming down.

I decided to go ahead and post about my tone-it-down quilt for my BQF entry, in the Large Quilts category.

#apqquiltalong finished quilt

I finished this just about a year ago and it is still one of my favorite quilts. It's on my daughter's bed and I still think about making another one. As soon as I clear out my WIP pile somewhat. I think this pattern would look really good with a background of just 5 or 6 subtle variations of off white, or pale pink.

A couple of attribution details:
*Pattern is from American Patchwork and Quilting and was the quiltalong pattern for 2014. Search #apqquiltalong to see more.
*My color choices were inspired by this quilt by Svetlana/SOTAK Handmade.
