This is my first time posting one of my finished quilt projects projects here. I made this last winter as a Christmas gift to myself - my second-ever quilt - and then my daughter stole it because she loved it so much. Ah well, tis life! Anyways, it's pretty plain and simple - just 8x8 blocks sewn together, the binding is also the backing, made from Amy Butler fabric that I love.

Here it is:

I can totally see why your daughter stole it!

Love Amy's fabrics, you've done a great job.

I really like how the colors all tie into the square next to it...almost gradiated.  It makes for a beautiful finished product.
