A Chequered Quilt

My husband is back from his trip and this weekend I finally got some time to get back to my sewing machine. My sister is getting married soon and I want to whip up a quilt that she could hang in her new home.

So here it is....a simple chequered quilt in two of my favourite colours Рochre yellow and coffee brown. I cut up the entire stash of felt before I realised that I am short of ochre yellow. Now I need a trip to the store (sigh!). I also bought some red felt because I liked the combination that the 3 colours made. I am just not sure whether I would use it for the appliqu̩ or for just the borders. I am also not sure what fabric I would use for the backing. I would worry about it once I master joining the rows perfectly though.
