Eva's Cuddly Mocha Meringue

Hi Bloggers, I was just informed by my MIL that it's been 3 weeks since my last post and even longer for a finished project. Opps! But time has not been wasted. Im so excited to show you
what I've been working on. 

A very Snuggly Cuddly Winter Quilt.  Well our "New Addition" EVA, thinks so. 
Can you spot her?

I don't know whats more lovely "Eva" or my Quilt? lol..  I am very pleased with the finish. Finally a finish for April, yeah!   My darling husband brought me this quilt kit 3 birthday's ago, after falling in love with the fabric at Calico Crossroads.  I have had the quilt top made for a few weeks.  I was just not sure what to make it into.  A wall hanging, or a quilt for the new lounge.  Hard decission but my mind was made up when I came across the cuddly chenille at Lincraft.  I had a "Brain Fart" lol (idea)... Make it a Cuddly Reversable Throw Rug!!.  The Mocha Meringue top was quilted just in the ditch, and then I sewed the two colours of chenille fabric into a checkboard pattern.  I put a thick wadding inside and used these cute wooden buttons to help tie down the quilt.  They worked out great!  It is going to be great for those cold Queensland

I have alot of fabric left from the kit, so think I might make some matching pillows (one-day).  

Eva has taken over the quilt.  Poor Pepper our other cat has to settle with a cushion.  She was not pleased with us bring home Eva, but when they think we aren't looking they play round.  And for all of you MODA lovers, like myself.  Yes!... her name is from the Basic Grey collection "Eva". 
It suits her well.  Thank you MIL -Gail for coming up with the name.  

Came across this pic on Roseanne's blog.  Doesn't it look so very much like our Sweet Eva?
Hope you all had a great creative weekend.  I am currenly working on a few things so I will have to post them through the week.

Take Care
