Cabin Coolaid, Fat Quarter Shop

Cabin Coolaid quilt and pillow
I really wanted to try the Fat Quarter Shop's FREE Shortcut Quilts pattern, Layer Cake Lemonade which was released last week. (Speaking of the Fat Quarter Shop, the giveaway winner is announced  below). The top was a finish last week and today I present Cabin Coolaid as a finish with a pillow made from the scraps. I just happened to have two short stacks of Riley Blake, Elk Ridge fabric in my stash and it was just enough to make another manly project for MOvember. This is the last brown project I'm starting for awhile, by the way. 
This quilt is perfect for my "man cave" of a house (cabin) where nothing famine fits in.  My hubby loves this rustic style quilt, of course. 
There aren't a lot of scraps from the construction of the quilt, but there was enough to make a 16" cushion cover with a little leftover fabric from the Football Stadium quilt.  I quilted the pillow and quilt with leaves and vines with free motion on my domestic with thread I recieved from my friend Jen over at Glinda Quilts.
Thank you, my friend.  I really liked this thread and it was perfect for these projects.
The quilt is 48" x 61" and is perfect for cuddling up in front of the fireplace in a cabin during the winter.

And she does it again! I really love this one, Carla - the simplicity and use of colour is just so lovely. In my head, I can see me sat in that chair snuggled up under this ... fabby, my friend :)
