Scotland Calling, an Improv Baby Quilt

The colors in this improv, strip set quilt remind me very much of Scotland: its gray skies, stone building, streets, and fog, set against the lush green of manicured gardens, sweeping fields, and mountains.  The gray contrasts so nicely with the green, making it seem even more saturated.  It makes me think of the way the color of the grass looks through the rain.
 I made the quilt using the same improv technique as The Therapist and Partly Cloudy.
I quilted it using the same, simple figure eight free motion design.
The binding is such a versatile print: Heath in gray.  The backing is a DS Quilts polka dot.
 
This 40 x 45 baby quilt is available in my etsy shop.
