30th Birthday Quilt for Adina

Hey, everyone.  So I know it's been quite quiet over here lately, but just to prove that in fact I am still alive and still making things, I share with you some photos of a quilt I made for my dear friend, Adina.  We've been friends since freshman year of college (over 11 years now!!) and she requested a quilt, so what was I to do?  I picked a relatively simple pattern because I wanted a hope of finishing it before she turned 31!  I chose one of my favorite fabric lines - Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry.  Then I got to work!  See the results below!

Final Quilt front.

After doing all the piecing, I struggled a bit with how to quilt it, but ultimately I decided to do 3 parallel lines going down the middle of each white and gray line.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Here's a closeup of the front, you can see the quilting lines (and that's Adina looking down at me).
Here's a photo of the back.  I chose a simple solid green back and used purple for the binding.

Well, that's it.  I hope you all enjoyed seeing my latest finished project!
