I just finished this last night! I am really pleased with it. This is for our daughter, who is currently working in Haiti for the UN. This will be a piece of home to have with her.

It is twin size. I adapted a bricks pattern for the side panels, and put smaller bricks and her initials down the center. I quilted the three panels separately, by machine and hand, then put them together.

Hope you like looking!

I did some hand quilting around the initials

Hope this shows the zig-zaggy machine stitch I used

All of the fabrics were from JoAnn's, except for the fabric for the joining strips and the binding! I do not usually use grey, but these fabrics just called to me to be joined together!
