I love it, its so simple but effective. The backing is just as good. It's looking good on the couch.

YOU should be so proud! Juxtaposition of fabrics, begging the looker to reach out and feel, crinkly-wrinkly from the quilting, ...love at first sight. Scenes like that on your coach are why I could never give up this artfrom.

Your quilt is lovely, Andi. I like the way you used some solid (linen?) in the layout. And the handquilting is beautiful too, that's a big quilt to do by hand!!
Your quilt make me want to buy some Wonderland fabric...

Can't thank you enough for that inspiration!! I have had a multi pack of Amy Butler sample strips - each strip is 4.5 inches wide - sitting on the shelf for ages. I used a few in coin quilts for babies, but really a project with squares is the best option. It's already underway...

I love the picture with it partially folded on the end of the couch. But with it spread out, you get to see more of the patchwork yumminess.
