"Leftovers" quilt for fundraising auction

Sorry that I haven't posted anything on my blog lately! I actually have had this quilt finished for a month! But, we are packing to move in 5 weeks so I haven't had much of a chance to blog. I have been busy with some UFO's as well in between the packing...amazing what you find hidden :-). This quilt was made with 'leftovers' from a class I was teaching "Learning to Listen to your Quilt Speak". We made a table topper...well, I ended up making four because I wanted to try out different settings and fabrics! So, of course, I had leftovers of the fabrics used in the quilt. I also found some scrap bags with some of the same fabrics (some Amy Butler and quite a few Joel Dewberry prints). This pattern was in the Quick Quilts magazine Issue #96 and the name of it is "Modern Spirit in Squares" by Caren Zimmerman. It is a very quick and easy quilt with no borders. Great for leftover large print squares. Here is the finished quilt:

It was quilted allover with a meandering stitch with turquoise and brown quilting thread from King Tut. I was very excited to find that thread at the Marsh Store in Coldstream...perfect for this quilt.

A couple of closeup pictures of the quilting and fabrics:

This quilt went to a fund raising auction at the Christian High School where my husband teaches. I hope to get some more pictures up soon.
