Morning Walk Quilt





No, I'm not cheating on my goal to make all the quilts in Simply Retro!  This one was done earlier, but I just never got it photographed and blogged. 

The fabrics are mainly inspired by the Morning Walk collection, namely that cute cactus print.  It's made with the simplest ever 'pattern'.  Just cut your fabric into strips of varying widths, anywhere from 1.5" - 3".  Sew them into 10" squares and then arrange the 10" squares however you like.

I chose to turn a couple of the blocks to make the strips run the other way.

The quilt is backed in Kaffe Fasset's shot cotton, the color Shell.  Once again, this makes it so soft and light. 

If you like the cactus print, search for Morning Walk by Leah Duncan.  Any other prints that you're wondeirng about, just ask in the comments and I'll try to answer there so everyone can see it.
