Brown and yellow fall quilt for 100 Quilts for Kids- completion!


I love saying this- done! I am done with my quilt for the 100 Quilts for Kids drive. Well, the first one at least. Now the race is on to finish at least one more. Maybe I will also donate my Parisville quilt, or my Kona poseidon quilt. I doubt I need them as much as they will be enjoyed by someone who receives them through the drive.
Here's a closeup so you can see the quilting. I loved the quilting for the original quilt from Made by Rae, so I stuck with that, nice parallel lines in yellow variegated thread to set off the brown. Okay, close to parallel. I am trying to buck this perfectionist thing in my quilting.
This is the back, made of extra smaller charm squares, a big piece of brown fabric and some white printed with cute little bunnies in brown.
These are the cute little bunnies! And some view of what the quilting looks like on the backside. Pieced backs make me wonder how they will line up, especially with straight line quilting, but this worked pretty well. 
 Here is another closeup so you can see the prints. Mixed some yellow in there because the brown was getting overwhelming and the fall colors need some yellow, yes? So I had to throw some in the brown binding too- just some smatters, like fallen leaves.
 The thrown-carelessly-over-a-chair look.
 I did not plant that ball. But it does bring out the yellow in the binding. Thanks dear toddler.
All folded up. Love that brown print with the flowers.

Did I overdo it with the pictures? Hopefully not. I was having fun celebrating my finish, and wondering who will love this quilt? Hopefully a kid who needs a extra bit of love and comfort.

Linking? Why yes I am. Also to Sew Modern Monday!
