I made this quilt/blanket for a swap, and feel sort of bad posting it here with all you amazing quilters! Maybe one day I can make a quilt as nice as the ones posted here, but one step at a time.

Anyway, with this quilt I wanted to have something that invoked a "nature" feeling, was sophisticated, but still fun and funky, and I think I did a good job! I also wanted it to have a little bit of texture to it, so I tied it down with matching buttons and put a few matching iron-on patches around the edge. I hope you enjoy!

This is the whole quilt... I had a hard time getting good photos of it.

With the whole swap package with matching pillows and coasters


So, what do you think?
