for my birthday, i treated myself to my first fabric precuts from moda. i was desperate to get my hands on some moda. anyway, i recently discovered green fairy quilts and their online store, and it just so happened that they had a sale on around my birthday. so for the price of one 'charm pack' i got two! :)
Grand Finale seemed like a great choice. my kind of colours! i love these autumnal shades, and the blue and purple thrown in. they looked awesome!
i also came across this pattern on the moda bakeshop website, so i cut a few more 5" x 5" squares from my own stash to fill in the necessary gaps, et voila! a beautiful quilt.
[apologies for the rubbish picture above. my camera choice wasn't optimal and i have limited space to get a good angle...]
it's not quite large enough to put on a bed, nor is it small enough to have on a child's bed, so it's going to be my picnic/general use quilt. it's perfect because it's just what i imagine a typical american quilt to look like. anywho, it's yet to be quilted... it'll be a little while til that happens, so i decided to post this picture now. better pictures to come when it's finished!
i'm one happy chick today! :)
