I think I'm in love...

...with this quilt.
Sugared Plums.
Rich. Jewel Tones. Posh. Yummy.

This quilt uses the scraps from MY quilt, and scraps from a quilt I am still working on, and of course others too.
I don't even know what a lot of them are, but here is some of what I used:
ZU ZU's Petal by Benartex
Basic Grey, Eve
Amy Butler - Lotus
Henry Glass
and I don't know what else!

Right now I am so in love with the Basic Grey "Grunge" fabrics. I love that they aren't totally solid, and they have some great colors. I quilted with an all-over loops design in a slightly variegated King Tut thread. Love it.
I love the back of this one too. The main color on the back is like a warm raspberry.
Do you need one?I've listed this in the Shop.

It's beautiful Allie, I adore the colours and your quilting is perfect. Don't your quilts look fabulous out in the snow? Living in Australia, I can only imagine snow at Christmas time!! I love the raspberry colour on the back too xo
