Metro Link

My Metro Link quilt is done! {except for a little more binding stitching tonight} In plenty of time for Christmas. I wasn't worried, were you? The pattern is from i like orange too and available on etsy.The background is Free Spirit's Nugray - my new favorite gray. The fabric is soft and smooth and the color is perfect!
I paired it with lots of scraps - many snagged from a door prize and scrap swap at our STL Modern Quilt Guild - in aqua blue, lime green, yellow, orange and gray.
I tried to stay away from anything floral and stuck with geometric patterns and some fun fabrics - like these toasters and measuring cups...
Some cool ducks...
The back is a wonderfully soft flannel of gray with white dots and the binding is a Joel Dewberry herringbone blue.
I've been trying to find the perfect quilt for my city-boy son for a while and when my friend Mary Claire showed hers at our guild - I knew that's what I would do. I hope he loves it!!
