A Simple Patchwork quilt

In over 30 years of quilting, I've never made a quilt simply of squares. Until now. You may remember this one, started early this Summer.


I enjoyed picking each and every fabric in colors of aqua, coral, gray and yellow. I love how this simple design really lets the fabrics sing!


The quilting design is "Flower Power" from Angela's book. It was super fun and easy.


Because I didn't count squares when I was cutting, there were tons left over that became much of the backing.


I used all my favorite bicycle prints and it makes me feel like hanging on to Summer just a little bit longer...  Cindy
