Serenade Collection - Bakeshop Awesome Lap Quilt

  I apparently love the Serenade collection of fabric by Kate Spain.  This will be my third time using it for a quilt.  In my previous quilts I bought yardage and just bought the purples, blues and grays from the collection.  For this quilt I purchased the Serenade jelly roll.  I searched on the bake shop website and wanted to try this "awesome lap quilt" pattern. The link is here  It gives you step by step instructions very detailed, great tutorial.
  What a difference this quilt is from my previous quilts just adding the oranges and browns.  You wouldn't even think they were from the same collection.  The quilt is small only 46" x 50" a perfect lap quilt for the couch. 
  I really wasn't sure what pattern to use when top stitching it.  I was stumped and left it for quite a while.  I finally found this pretty feathering pattern and thought I would just go for it.  I absolutely love it!  I actually almost like the back more than the front! 
  So here it is all finished....
