The Hermes Quilt

A few months late, but Grace circle's quilt for do. Good Stitches is done!

We used a simple pattern... we each used four 10" orange squares... cut, sewn, re-cut, and re-sewn

The color choice was based on a large piece of Kaffe fabric I had acquired for free. I joked with the Grace circle that I'd bind it in brown and call it the Hermes quilt after the famous Hermes orange boxes and brown ribbon. And wouldn't you know it... after auditioning bindings, the brown one really was my favorite.

Finished this one up just in time... the group's April blocks will be coming to me to make the next quilt.

I'm linking up with Melissa and Shanna for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
