Finish it up Friday

 I'm halfway to 52 quilts in 2012! 

Quilt #26 is for the 12th birthday of my great-niece, Katelinn.  She wanted a pink and brown quilt, and Sophie by Chez Moi for Moda Fabrics is the closest to pink and brown fabric I could find.

I pieced the blocks last week while I was in Ohio, but was short enough background fabric for the last block.  Since I had to make one more block when I got home, I added another row to make the quilt twin-size.  The pattern is "Smitten" by Rachel Griffith Designs.   This design calls for charm squares, two squares of each fabric.  Rachel's directions are very well written and I would have finished the quilt in one day if I had taken enough fabric with me!

If you missed yesterday's post, I am hosting a giveaway to celebrate my 100th blog post.  Go here to enter.
