|Front: the 2 grays are rather obvious|
Case in point: a birthday quilt for my sister-in-law. She picked the colors and I was happily piecing away, when I realized that I would not have enough of the solid "background" color, Kona coal. So I ordered some more. (From the same vendor I ALWAYS buy my Kona solids). I finished the quilt and to my initial surprise (horror, shock), the grays are not the same.
|2 grays side by side|
Acceptance: I'm thinking the more I look at it, the more I'm OK with the 2 different grays. I'm counting it as one of those "happy" accidents.
Sharing: I'm linking up with the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side. Who knows, perhaps this is more common that I thought.
