Another quilt pieced (well almost .....)

I have  been busy this weekend again piecing a quick big block quilt.  I found this pattern in the McCalls Quilting "America loves scrap quilts" and it was designed by Geri Robinson.  I immediately liked the colours in the quilt, and luckily managed to source some fabrics (as per my earlier post)  The layout is at the moment identical to the pattern, although the fabrics are slightly different but the same range by Moda used in the magazine.  I intend to add two more borders to it though, as it does not feel complete yet for me, plus I would like it to be a little larger.
It has no intended purpose other than a sample for my studio.  I haven't yet decided how I am going to quilt it and I will think about that, but it will either be a sample of one of my latest pantographs - "Twinkle" may look kind of nice, or maybe some freehand swirls and flowers so that I can quilt something different in the pinwheel intersections.
I have been pampered today on Mothers day,  had some lovely presents from my boys and I even don't have to do any cooking today as my husband will cook instead, it is always a nice day when that happens !

Thanks Kay, it looks even better with the borders added now. I have been doodling over it with some quilting ideas too. (Whenever I will ever find the time for that...)
