A New View was one of the first quilts I designed myself and one of my first patterns. I had so much fun collecting all the beautiful browns and turquoises for the original quilt. It is a full/queen size (80″ x 84″) and the pattern originally only included instructions for that size.
Now, I have gone back and added information for a baby size (36″ x 48″) and a throw size (60″ x 63″).
When I bought a fat quarter bundle of Daisy Janie Shades of Grey last summer, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them – I just knew I had loved the line since I first saw it and I needed to have it! You know what I mean.
As I worked on the idea for a baby sized version of A New View, I realized these fabrics were perfect! I added some seafoamy/aqua colors and a soft baby quilt was born. A couple of my (non-quilting) family members thought that it was kind of strange to make a grey baby quilt, but it is such a pretty, soft grey, I love it!
The new, multi-sized version of A New View is available now in my Etsy shop in both paper and PDF versions and at PatternSpot.com in PDF format.

Thank you so much for finding such a fantastic way to use the Shades of Grey fabrics!!! This quilt looks gorgeous – like a watercolor.

I'm just putting the binding on a grey/turquoise baby quilt. You are not alone.
Sigh, love the Shades of Grey.

Very pretty in the gray/blue… I like both actually. Great work!

My goodness, it looks totally different in the grey prints, very interesting. The attention goes to the printed textures and the blue is like a transparent overlay. Yummy!

Brown is not one of my favourite colour, but I love it in combination with the bright turqoise! It's so eye catching- and I bet fun to make.

That grey version is beautiful (so is the original)!
