0805 sahara babes in the woods

SAHARA Babes in the Woods 42″x 59″


I had 12″ left of each of the 5 prints from the EBB TIDE quilt that I made with fabric given to us by Timeless Treasures.  It was just enough to cut 8 each of the pieces for SAHARA.  Again I was afraid of how light and busy the prints are.  I figured I might have to add a lattice strip between each row.  But that would have made the quilt too long or left me with extra pieces.  So I went ahead and just sewed it together, and it worked–probably because the background squares are half the size of the bricks.  That gives quite a bit of breathing room.   I do like how the 5 prints worked, and will try it again with 1/3 yard cuts.  It will be good too see how the 5 print repeat looks in fabrics with more contrast.  An interesting secondary pattern might show up, or it might be awkward.
