This is my first finished quilt! I just made up the blocks as I looked at the fabric and built them around the mushrooms. The back (which I neglected to photograph) is brown cotton with contrasting orange quilting. I coordinated the top quilting with brown stitch in the ditch (I think it's called...) It ended up being about 36"36" and I used some $1 per yard fleece for batting.

Here's the whole shebang:

As you can see I pieced one of the blocks on sideways, but I decided to just go with it.

And a couple close-ups of the 2 versions of blocks:

I love the way the plain colours you chose highlight the patterns so well.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

The sideways block gives it more character!

That's fantastic!  I really, really like the mushroom print.  Don't worry about the sideways block, I think it looks cute.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.
