Exchange Quilt: Trial Layout

I am putting together a quilt using fabrics from my stash for a Christmas gift exchange at my mother-in-law's house. The colours need to appeal to men and women, but who am I kidding? Men don't want quilts (at least not ones like these), and so this quilt will just have to be chosen by a woman. Tough luck.

Here is the fabric I chose:

And here is the layout I am using:

I am then doing a border around the blocks. I also think I have chosen the backing- a chocolate brown flannelette that has some turquoise in it with some flowers. I think it will be a cozy lap quilt. I hope I can get it done in time!

  1. Who is the makes of that beautiful fabric!! It's to die for! Your quilt will be beautiful!!!

  2. To answer your question, Michelle, the fabric is:
    Sonora - Butterfly Silhouette Turquoise, Sonora - Mitzi Leaf Chocolate, Sonora - Mitzi Leaf Teal, Sonora - Scroll Chocolate, Sonora - Serena Turquoise and Lizzy House- Pearl Bracelet in Chocolate. I'm not entirely sure what the large turquoise floral print is because I bought it ages ago (and have used it many times since).
