Good Night, Irene

I love this quilt!   The brown is from an aged muslin line that I must check out for my projects. This could be a good stash busting project and looks complicated but is not.  It uses four square in a square type blocks in the X block and four 4 patches in the other block.   Pattern found  @ Fons and Porter.   Or a Missouri Star video tutorial called 4 patch + X's and O's  here.  Can you tell I hope to make one of my own in the future?!
I think her fabrics used really create a fresh look at the quilt, so many use white. That's nice too but this colorway speaks to me.   The brown doesn't show that clearly in the pictures but it had some slight variations in the color and almost looked like suede.   Its called Aged Muslin I believe.   All the focus fabrics are from one line and the backing fabric completes the look.  But if you want to clear out some of your fabrics, or create fast gifts or charity quilts,  this looks like a fun pattern to use.
