Charity Quilt - Opposing triangles #2

I made a beautiful quilt top from overdyed fabrics from this same pattern (described in an earlier post).  This one was made with brown and tan fabrics from my stash and pink/brown fabrics given to me by Bonnie Keller.  And it's kind of pretty too - but more antique looking than the modern looking one made before.

It was pretty simple to make.  Here's what you need for the 65" x 70" quilt.

From the darkest brown:  13 @ 6" squares; 2 @ 5-1/2" squares; 2 @ 5-1/2 x 15-1/2" strips; 2 @ 5-1/2 x 25-1/2" strips; and 2 @ 5-1/2" x 35-1/2" strips.

From the medium brown:  23 @ 6" squares
From the light brown:  19 @ 6" squares
From the tan: 14 @ 6" squares
From the lighter tan:  6 @ 6" squares
From the pink/brown scraps:  75 @ 6" squares
Sew the brown squares with the pink/brown scraps squares and cut into half square triangles.  
Press towards the brown fabrics.
Trim to 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" squares.
Lay out according to the pictures.
Sew the columns together, pressing each in opposite directions.
Sew the rows together and press all in one direction.
Stay stitch around all the edges.

I hope you like it!
