Raspberry Truffle

I'm so excited.  Finally got a UFO quilted!

This is Raspberry Truffle. It was a BOM offered by the Fat Quarter Shop a long time ago - possibly 2009 or 2010.  The pattern was designed by Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek Quilts.  I don't see this pattern on her site, so it may have been created just for the FQS or it's retired.

This quilt was so much fun to make.  Yes, there is some applique on it, which I needle turned, but it went very quickly.

The quilt was designed to use charm packs.  Seriously!  Just a little bit of yardage here and there, but it was mostly charm packs!

Raspberry Truffle was beautifully quilted by Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt.  The fabric is by Judie Rothermel.

I just need to trim and square, and hopefully get the binding on this weekend.  Well, maybe at least get the machine part of the binding on.  I love to save the hand work for nights when I need to relax after work.

See?  I am getting things accomplished!

glad you got this done. It looks like I have to sit out for 6 weeks since I had surgery on right wrist for carpal tunnel *which was really bad* I know that you had to not sew for a while yourself.
This quilt is beautiful... and love your colors.
