First finish of 2014!

I had been moving these green and brown strips from A Quilter's Garden's "strip club" around for months.  They aren't my colors and even though I could see them all working together, I didn't think they would work with me.  Then I saw a quilt online somewhere and adapted it to fit:

It made a pretty nice lap quilt which was done in a week.  It's all machine quilted in straight lines across, and X's in the squares.  I used a green floral 1930's fabric for the back and had a little trouble figuring out the binding.  In the end, I settled for what I am calling an "invisible" binding, because I made a facing that I sewed to the back.  I think that gives Autumn Paths a very contemporary feel.
