The bride requested a neutral color so that as her styles and tastes change, it will always "go."

The crown prince shawl has this diamond pattern as its center square. It also has a wide-ish boarder on all sides, and a beautiful lacy trim around the whole outer edge. Depending on how much yarn I wind up using (purchased nearly 3000 yds!) I may go for one or both of the boarders. If I got my gauge correct, I am making a center square of 60"x60". A queen-sized comforter/quilt is 90"x90", so, we'll see how far I get toward that. I'll let you know.
