Browns and pinks

Another lap quilt....
This time in browns and purples/pinks. I love how well the colours work together.
It all started with the printed cotton in the photo above. I found it at Fancy Silk fabric store in Digbeth, Brum and had to have it, even tho it was so expensive! In the end I bought just half a yard as I couldn't justify spending any more money and then matched up some other plains to go with it.

Here's a photo of the back:
I used simple straight line quilting in a double grid pattern - you can see it quite clearly in the photo above and also the ones below.
 All folded up...
And of course, my signature label:
I'm hoping to enter this one into the October Celebrate Colour at Stitched in Color. Wish me luck!
