Stitched With Love...

Spring Magic is finished and will be on its way to Twyla today! I've loved creating this special quilt - just to give it away as a gift in my 500th Post Giveaway drawing.
The finished quilt is bright, cheerful, and vintage-looking to me. The Moda fabrics are so pretty in shades of pink, aqua, green and yellow. Each individual square measures 2" x 2", and each nine-patch block measures 6" x 6". There are 2" white strips between each block, with 2" borders around the outside. It measures approximately 41.5" wide by 51.5" long overall, and I think it'll be a perfect size for snuggling into for a little snooze.
Of course, I completed the quilt with my "Brynwood" label, and then decided to add the "stitched with love" label created by the sweet Anna of Lillalotta. She has a wonderful blog, and, although she's taken a break from her Etsy shop recently to regroup, she sells beautiful things there when her shop is open. She's hosting a Christmas package swap event on her blog, in case you're interested in participating!
So, here it is. Twyla's finished Spring Magic quilt. I'm just taking final measurements and making a few notes. I'm going to be offering a pattern for this lap quilt, in case you'd like to make a jelly roll quilt for yourself or someone you love. I'll be offering the pattern for sale in my Etsy shop in the near future.

Time to finish Charlene's quilt now, so that I can mail hers off to her this week, too!
