Aunty Jenny's caravan quilt

About 3 years ago my My Aunty Jenny requested a brown, fawn and a smidge of blue quilt for her birthday. I had  some fabrics in my stash that suited, mostly from a Moda Chocolat' fat 8th bundle. After some googling using the keywords Moda, Chocolat and quilt, not a lot of inspiration came up which is a little interesting as a second Chocloat' line was printed. Anywho, I came across this pattern which was based on a quilt called Rectangle Reverie by Happy Zombie and I actually have that magazine so with a few modifications* I made this quilt top.

Fast forward a year or so, and I sandwiched it and did some loopy quilting. I wasn't sold on the quilting, had a few tension issues, and put it aside. Many discussions have been had about the quilts progress, and with my #12quiltsin12months goal, I thought it would be an easy finish. So I've pulled it out, given it a shake, found the matching thread and gotten back into it.

Plan is to quilt, bind, wash, and gift it by Thursday, as my Aunt and Uncle are caravanning over now, and despite it being summer, it's about 20 degrees. So they may want to use it.

* modifications - I had to tweak the pattern to fit the fabrics I had, my rectangles are 5.5" x 16.5" (1" smaller width) and I added a whole other row to fit her caravan bed.
