Caramel or Café au Lait?

Jane also made great progress on a project at our girls getaway a few weeks ago. She started it in the spring when she was surrounded by water and looking for something else to think about other than the flood.

Its a beautiful palette - almost café au lait (or is that caramel?) with a little pink and green tossed in for good measure. Again, a simple but very effective nine patch that lets the prints do much of the heavy lifting.

It will be a throw as it is not overly large, but it will be a lovely accent piece. She's adding a border of large squares and then it will be ready to quilt. It is just so soft and creamy.

She's saving the drama for the back - this huge floral print that she discovered in her stash. It is as though the colours were made for her quilt!..M

It does seem like a very soft, sweet looking quilt. I adore the large flower fabric for the backing! Perfect for the quilt.:)

Simple piecing that showcases the fabrics is high on my happy list these days! Jane stitched up a marvelous quilt! Love it!
