First quilt of 2011

SOOOO.... my computer has been out of commission for a few weeks...YES WEEKS!!! and I have not been able to post, or look at blogs, or even access many of my patterns.  YUCK!!!  But a while back I finished 2011's very first finished quilt.

I made this quilt out of some of the scraps from my vintage linens from THE SHOP.  I really liked some of the colors and patterns in the linens that I had, so I decided to try it out.  I kinda LOVE the way these linens are in a quilt.  Because they are used and washed multiple times, the quilt is THE SOFTEST thing I have ever made.  It is so snuggly and soft. Seriously!!!  
ANYWAY...I used THIS pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.  
I quilted it using masking tape and grid quilting (nothing new there).  Seriously in 2011 I am going to perfect my free motion quilting.  SERIOUSLY!!!! 

The backing fabric is my favorite.  It is SOOO soft.  There is also a strip of "stacked coins" pieced into the back.  I don't usually piece the back, but I liked that little addition. 

Since it is not really a "manly boy" quilt, I didn't think it was quite right for Little Baby E (who will arrive in less than 2 weeks).  SOOO I put it in the Etsy shop.  We shall see if anyone loves it as much as I do:)  I have a few more finished projects to share and a couple little cuties in the works, but I am still getting back into this century and need to go get caught up on some more important computer blog stalking and online shopping:)
