Summer Basket of Flowers Charm Quilt

This was a quick quilt and I had finished most of it some time ago but it took forever for me to sit down and attach the binding. Although only 35" X 45" in size, this is not intended to be a baby blanket, but perhaps a picnic blanket for an adult.
I thought about giving it to sister B, since I was planning to gift the Easter quilt to sister C. However, I'm not sure these muted country colors are really sister B's "THING". Might have to go back to the drawing board!

I used 2 packages of Moda Summer Basket of Flower charm packs for the quilt top. Each package includes 40 X 5" charm squares. It's perfect (no scraps left! yay!!). For the backing, I found a piece from my stash that had matching colors and also excudes a country, wholesome feeling. Although Moda calls the fabrics Summer Basket of Flowers, I think the colors remind me more of Autumn, perfect for now!
