Ruby Quilt


I won a Charm pack of  'Ruby' fabric in February 2012 in a giveaway from Connie at Freemotion on the River.  In the summer of 2012, I bought some more fabric in the 'Ruby' collection, and I pieced a throw-size quilt top.





I quilted it this winter and, finally, it is done.  I used my favorite batting, Dream Wool, and I quilted with straight lines about an inch apart to keep the quilt warm and fluffy.
 






It has been SO COLD in the Midwest this year and 'Ruby' quilt ended up being the 'go to' quilt.  It is so toasty.

I'm not always fond of quilt made from collections but I really like this one. I haven't tried wool batting yet.

Straight lines are perfect for this quilt pattern. I love this sweet, happy, warm quilt.
