Friday Finish: Earthy Goodness Quilt



It may have looked like a quiet week on the blog, but really, it was pretty crazy.  It was our first week out of school.  Husband built a new set of stairs for the front of our house.  I knitted half a sweater!  And we played in pools and got ice cream with friends.  (I also put some serious thought into naming my quilts, specifically this one, and failed to come up with anything.)


And I also got some serious sewing done.  This quilt was commissioned by my cousin who wanted a quilt for Father's Day.  I had about a week and a half to do it, so of course I said it would be no problem.


She wanted browns and creams, and I added a little pale blue and green.  I love how those colors aren't really screaming, but they quietly cheer the whole quilt up.  Because I had so little time, I went with a simple block, the disappearing 9-patch.  I think now that it wasn't the fastest block I could have chosen, but I love how it turned out.


I backed it in some super soft flannel and did some loopy quilting.  The result is a pleasantly floppy quilt that's perfect for cuddling under on the couch.
