Botanica Quilt Finish...

I recently finished this quilt for my sister. Her birthday is Christmas Eve, so this will be a birthday/Christmas present. She is studying botany in school, so I thought this fabric collection (Botanica by Lourdes Sanchez) would be a great fit for her. Extra bonus... her favorite colors are purple and green! I did a kind of crazy patchwork style quilt. You can read more this quilt here and here.

I am very happy with the back. I love this grey fabric! It matched perfectly with some of the grey in the Botanica fabric. As a side note... our tree is looking fabulous, don't you think? I love fall! :)

I found a green fabric to match the greens in the leaves and flowers for the binding. This quilt is a throw sized quilt measuring about 54" by 63". I hope she likes it! Otherwise, I might have to steal it from her. ;)

Hello! I know it has been a long time since you posted this, but I'm hoping maybe there is a chance you will see this! :-) My mom picked up a bunch of Botanica fabric a while ago and I've been trying to find a solid grey to match! Do you remember where you got this grey? It's such an unusual grey that nothing I have found looks good with it! Thank you for your help!

Hi, Karen

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I can't remember where I got this fabric, but I get most of my fabric at either Fabric.com or FatQuarterShop.com. I believe it is Kona Cotton in Ash, but I can't remember the exact color. Sorry! Good luck! :)
