Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Little Love...

Hi, all!

It's Friday!!!  I hope you've had a spectacular week - it's been gorgeous in middle Tennessee, with lovely fall temperatures, clear skies and low humidity.  Perfect fall weather!!  But now it's time to get your whoop whoop on - I hope you're ready!


Have you seen the Moda Love quilts that are showing up all around the blogosphere?

I tried to resist the urge… but I had a layer cake burning a hole in my stash….

So I whipped this up!

An Urban Chiks Boho layer cake...

some beautiful chocolate tone-on-tone background fabric

…and some long-suffering straight-line quilting of this big heavy quilt (what was I thinking?) and it's done!  It's backed in an unbleached muslin to show off the quilting, which was done in white (for the print blocks) and chocolate (for the background blocks).

This quilt will join the pile of quilts for my daughter Nancy to auction or raffle off to help #bringNathanaelhome!  We are now 24 days and counting in the wait for the officials in China to approve Nancy and Chris's application to adopt Nathanael.
