I spent this last weekend with my dear friend Leslie. We had planned a skiing adventure but the weather and snow conditions were less than cooperative. So we did what we usually do when we get together - sew away! Leslie is working on a fantastic Amy Butler pattern 'Weekender Bag.' And I finished up this quilt. This is my first quilt made using Moda charm packs. I bought them because I absolutely fell in love with this fabric. It is so bright and cheerful, the pictures don't really do it justice. I finished quilting it this weekend and put the binding on. And I've spent my Sunday afternoon reading / rest time under it. Something about it just makes me smile. I tried something new on this one, too. Rather than buying extra fabric for the backing I used some leftover binding and border fabric to piece the back. I actually like how it turned out. The main brown fabric on the back is my favorite from the entire line, I think. I didn't really have a purpose for this quilt when I bought the fabric, and I still don't have a plan for it, but I'm pretty sure I'll be using it plenty!
