Brown quilt finished

I finished this quilt this afternoon and my Bradley was kind enough to hold it up for me while I photographed it. The patterned fabrics are an old Moda range. I bought a jelly roll (It was my first ever!) and used it, and used it, and used it. And I still had strips left. I had no idea what I was going to do with the leftovers. Fast forward three years. Mrs 26 (picklesticks) was making small quilts for a good cause (check hers out here) and I thought I would make one too. I searched through my fabrics, came across these strips and thought they would make a great small quilt. (80cmx80cm-ish) And it's not bad. I will take it round to Mrs 26's house tomorrow so we can send our quilts off. Sewing day tomorrow! Can't wait.

Just lovely. I'm rather fond of those moda fabrics, and to sash them with the chocolate - sheer genius.

That looks so pretty I'm putting "chocolate quilt" on my list of future quilts.

Love the quilt! And do you realise you just a few weeks ago mentioned you would never have a finish again and now you have already!
