Soothing tones

This is one of my many projects in the sewing room these days. I took a workshop recently and one of my buddies did a scrap quilt with various coffee/taupe tones in it. To me, the effect was charming. I know the absence of color is not everyone's cup of tea but right now I am enjoying working with these fabrics. This is a very soothing quilt to work on. The blocks are easy and I like the combination of taupe tones. Should make a decent lap quilt down the road but I am still making the mini blocks. Anyway, I thought I would share some of what I am working on now that Helena is in school.
Have a great day :)
