Auction Quilt #1

The last two years I've been making a quilt for my children's school auction and this year I'll be making two one for each school. Luckily the auctions are about a month apart so I'm not doing them both at once. I am so excited about the first one and have been working on it for the past two days. I'm using Melissa Lunden's pattern Grand Junction which I have really enjoyed working with. 
For my fabrics the focus is the Architextures line, but I added a few other prints. The grey leaf print is from Simply Color, the small dots are Garden Pindot by Michael Miller, the trees are Green by Print & Pattern from the City Center line, and Kona solids. 

The quilt consists of 24 blocks and I've finished the first half of them so it's coming together pretty quickly.

This is the pattern isn't it cool how the squares all weave together! My friend Nancy will be quilting my auction quilts again for me this year which just makes them so much better. I can't wait to share the finished quilt with you. 
What are you working on this week?

Looks gorgeous so far! I can't wait to see it finished.

Thank you for sharing these with your neighborhood school auctions! You are so talented and I love seeing the progress - as well as the finished product.

Love that woven look, too! Is Melissa Lunden the designer who visited the last PMQG meeting?
