Just Quilted!

Here's a quilt that started with just 2 pieces of fabric that were meant for something entirely different. I bought these 2 fabrics intending to make some crayon rolls for a Christmas craft sale, but when I took them out to cut them up, they politely told me that they would like to be in a quilt, please!
When fabrics speak to you, you have to listen! So I cut and sewed and sewed and cut and ended up with this beauty! It's now listed in my Etsy shop here: Modern Blue and Brown Quilt

It's not a large quilt, just perfect for on the sofa for watching TV (54"x54") and backed with wonderful soft Minkee fabric that even the guys like to touch! Here's my grandson rolled up in it - he loves it when he can cuddle up under a "blankie". Now, just to teach him the difference between a blanket and a quilt!
