First FNWF For 2017

Last week I finally cut into my Vintage Modern layer cake. We have bought two new couches and I decided I would make new quilts to go over the back of them.
Molly was an excellent helper and advised me 
where to place some of the blocks!
 
All laid out ready to sew together. I'll show you the finished top another day. This is for the three seater couch.
Here's a little peek.
 Being holiday time, I got an early start to FNWF.
 
Rather than buying backing, I decided to 
piece together some of my Bonnie and Camille's 
Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle that
 I received for Christmas a couple of years ago.
 All sorted and ready for piecing.
 I also had a charm pack of Vintage Modern 
so I've used that for the two seater couch.
 Today I plan to piece both of these lots together. Then to work out the backing for the smaller quilt. I think I should have enough left from the bundle to also back this one. 
The quilts will then be reversible!
Thank you to Chez for hosting us for
