Since my partner has received this, I thought I would post it here to share.

I made this quilt for the Make-a-Friend swap.

The pictures aren't the best.  The backing fabric looks like tweed and coordinates with the front better than it looks like it does in the pictures.

Thanks for looking. Smiley

The patterned fabric is an Alexander Henry line.  I think it has the word "sew" in the name, but I can't remember and I don't have a piece with the selvedge to find out.

The solids are Kona Cotton.  The binding is an Alexander Henry called "downtown dot".

The pattern is Angel Face by Villa Rosa Designs.  It takes 1 yard of 3 fabrics (I used 4 because I didn't want a scrappy binding) and finishes 38" by 50".  It is great for larger prints that you don't want to cut up in small pieces.

Thanks for the kind comments! Smiley
