Twin Quilt Finished!

I always feel so good after finishing a quilt! Erica asked me to make a twin size quilt for her daughter using the colors in this quilt http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewfunbymonique/4458714106/in/set-72157623112818493/
but adding orange. I used Jenean Morrison's Mingle in beetroot (center square) to bridge the colors. I grabbed some of my Joel Dewberry's Woodgrain in orange, Valori Wells butterflies in orange (for the binding, too), Tanya Whelan's Marilyn from Dolce, Amy Butler's Floating Buds & Robert Kaufman's Crazy for Dots which also has all the colors including the burgundy. The rest is mostly Flora and Fauna and Mezzanine from Patty Young, but I also included Jennifer Paganelli (of course!) Matt's Tux, Pop Garden from Heather Bailey & Anna Maria's Filigree in green. My favorite combinations are mixing up the best from each designer! Hope Erica loves it! Linking up with quiltstory: http://www.quiltstory.blogspot.com/
