    A Quickie Quilt

    I had a Moda Layer Cake pack for awhile and the other day I realized it would make a good quilt for one of my DIL's. It went together really fast and I did very little quilting but I think she'll like it because they are 'her colors'. Size is approximately 50 x 60, wanted to make it a bit bigger but I didn't care for some of the pieces of cake - the colors clashed too much with the ones I did use. Sorry photo is a bit off and sideways, couldn't get my photo program to turn it right side up. May in Jersey

    PS: Just noticed photo posted with the top row cut off. Sucks, wish it cut off the bottom where DH's feet are in his old broken down sneakers, don't think anyone would mind if they weren't in the photo.

    If you just slide the bar at the bottom of the post to the right, you will see the complete quilt and your DH's scruffy old shoes don't show - and I love the colors and prints, they really make this a happy quilt, one that your DIL is sure to treasure!

    I like it. Husbands feet and all.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    That's a really nice quilt. I feel sure your DIL will love it. And, at least you were able to get your DH out of the recliner and sanding up so you aren't looking at the dirty soles like I often have to do around here. LOL
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
