The Charity Quilt that Stayed Home

Hello hello everyone on a fine Thursday evening... I have been really empathizing with everyone who was snowed in and iced over... living in California can make one really smug, but I lived in the east too many years to forget how yucky all that snow and ice can be! I hope everyone is comfortable and all dug out...
Way last winter I started this little string quilt, made out of fall color scraps from other projects - I just love browns, greens, and reds - I am continuously drawn to those colors... I keep saying I'm going to use more different colors, but am drawn to the fall palette.
So here is the top all finished... it was originally going to be a charity quilt, but
it seems so snuggly and cozy, even before quilting, that I have decided to keep it!
For now, it gets a home in the closet of "tops waiting to be sandwiched"""
I need to have a weekend where I do nothing but make sandwiches!
Happy Quilting, everyone!

Great Quilt - don't feel guilty - I have a few similar - just loved them too much, but then had to work double-time to make the promised charity quilt! 8-))

We missed most of the snow here, but those 'minus 26 degrees' were not fun! (western Nebraska)

Very pretty. Totally like the different diagonals and the fall colors.

I love the fall colors also and your quilt top looks fabulous and cozy. It's a keeper, for sure.

I love the quilt! Fall colors seem to be my weakness. Love the layout of this one. Better get one made for hubby!
