WIP- MIL's quilt

I'm waiting on more fabric to finish up the BGBGB quilt.  Happy Robots is back from the quilter and awaiting binding and I'm awaiting the arrival of my mother to help hold this monster as I sew the binding on.  The Modern Quilt Guild Challenge quilt is still awaiting quilting.  This seemed like a good time to start a new project.

At the beginning of the year I bought fabric for a couple of quilts that I knew I wanted to make during the year.  The first was the zigzag quilt for my SIL and the second was the Happy Robots and finally a quilt for my MIL.  My MIL LOVES harvest colors, yellow, orange, brown etc.  I found the awesome brown print as a jumping off point and added fabrics that pulled out colors from the print.  I'm using a vanilla colored solid as the neutral.  White was too stark and natural too dark.  The French vanilla color I found was perfect.
The blocks will be 10 inches finished and I think I'll make it 5 x 6.  I've got enough fabric leftover that I might also do a bookshelf quilt.  MIL is an English teacher and I think she'd really like a bookshelf quilt.
