This is my first queen sized quilt!  And it's all for me!  I made it using the leftover fabric from a quilt that I made for my sister (I over-estimated just a bit on the number of fat quarters I would need for that one), and added sashing, which I love!

I'm doing the 12 quilts in 2012 challenge, and this is #2!

It's lovely! I'm so glad you made a quilt for yourself, I still haven't done that yet! I love the colors. Is the back olive green?

This is pretty!  It reminds me of late summer.  I would love to have a picnic on this quilt!   Grin

That's a very striking quilt - I like the color combination, and the sashing makes it all pop!  Great job!

Thanks :-).  I'm snuggled under it right now!!   And the back is part olive green and part the color of the sashing (chocolate)... :-)

Beautiful! The greens are so unique. Also like you used a dark color for the edging, instead of the usual whites.
