Off To A Productive Start To The Year

 Just before Christmas we bought a new lounge suite. 
We put a couple of quilts over the backs of the couches and I decided I would make some new ones.
Having decided to use my Vintage Modern 
layer cake, I decided on a simple brick pattern 
for the three seater couch.
 For the two seater, I used my Vintage Modern charm pack. 
I just love the simplicity of squares (and rectangles).
Then, using my Bonnie and Camille's Designer Select 
Fat Quarter Bundle that I received for Christmas a 
couple of years ago, I pieced the backings.
 We will now have two reversible quilts for the lounge.

Two quilt tops and two pieced backings 
in one week. That's a record for me!
My Bonnie and Camille stash has now been reduced 
by quite a bit. Just a few smaller and scrappy pieces 
left to play with. Although I do still have my bundle 
of Scrumptious that I just keep admiring! 

Now to head off to my favourite quilter to get her 
to work her magic with these two!

They both look great Christine!
What a great way to use your precious B&C fabrics without cutting into tiny pieces.

I think you have used your gorgeous fabric really well in these tops and backing. Can't wait to see what the quilter does.
