    I copied Twistedstitcher's Cappuccino quilt. I really like how it came out. This is just the top so far. I am thinking about quilting it with a shape I found on some green fabric. I used lots of rich chocolate browns, tans and creams. I call it "Candy Shoppe".

    Looks almost edible. Lovely colour selection and the potential quilting pattern looks great. This is seriously gorgeous work.

    That's so pretty. I'm not much for brown either but I love those fabrics together. It's one that is on my list.
    Simple and elegant. On my last on line order I picked up a few fabrics I can use.

    The center square is 2 1/2 inches. Then two of the other color at 2 1/2 inches, and the side pieces are 2 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. Twistedstitcher gave the link to a site when she showed her pic. I am sure that you can get to it, by going to her profile.
