sometimes simple is perfect

I love this simple 8 1/2 inch squares quilt made with blues, greens and browns.  I need to cut more of these colors and send them over to my friend to sew together.  Sometimes simple is best.  I quilted it with the new quilt design I did yesterday called wood grain.  It is a simple design, but sure takes a long time to quilt out and uses up a lot of thread.  It adds a lot of texture to the quilt so in the end is nice, but I like quick quilts.  I have so much fabric to get through and so many kids needing a hug, I need to be able to quilt 5 things a day, not have one quilt take 5 hours.  Let's see what I can come up with today.
