Birthday Quilt is finished

Hi Everybody! 

Can you believe it? I finished a quilt! It seems  like forever since I last completed a quilt. I have several finished tops lying around (like the lovely Bloom Bloom Pow), but in between swaps, Quilt Alongs and BOMs I just don't get to set my machine to quilting mode ;-) Although freemotion quilting is really a great joy for me!

I had so much fun making this off set Log Cabin Pattern! The Blocks are so easy to make! I was using a jellyroll from Quilt et Textilkunst and several fat quarter pieces of Valori Wells Cocoon Line (I used those Butterflies for the backing, too, which was really hard to get!)

I love the colors and the fresh orange! But I just can't think of a proper name for this quilt? Any suggestions?

The Quilt lives now with my Mother in Law near Frankfurt. It was her birthday present. As you can see in the pictures, she really likes reds purples and oranges. And from her reaction I think she really likes the quilt. Right now I would just name it "to Irmgard". Unless you come up with a better name??

Enjoy the photos and Happy Crafting!
