marmalade quilt top

Welcome to finish it up Friday! Boy, that came around fast, didn't it?
I pieced most of the blocks for this quilt at a retreat this past summer. A few weeks later, I assembled the blocks together. This week I added the borders on the right and the left, increasing the size just enough to make it a twin size quilt. Woohoo!
I used a much hoarded layer cake of Marmalade fabric from my stash...it's old, but it's so good! It was finally time to use it! (Fabric was designed by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.) Background fabric is Kona snow. The seams are all pressed open, which isn't my favorite method, but it will make quilting it easier at least!
The FREE pattern is called Cartwheels and you can find it here. You can see my first version made from Strawberry Fields fabric here, if you care to. I'm excited to get this one finished up!

Now, it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday!

I have an old jelly roll of Sugar Pop all cut out into pieces to make this exact quilt from when you posted it on the Moda Bake Shop. Somehow it fell in the bottom of a drawer but this is making me want to pull it out and get it pieced up!!! Thanks for the inspiration ;)

Your cartwheels quilt is adorable! Doesn't it feel great to turn something from your stash into something you can use and enjoy? How are you planning to quilt this one?
