My own "Quilt in a Day"

I recently saw a quilt that I fell in love with (Big shock, I know).. but I loved it for it's simplicity. The whole body is made from just one striped fabric, cut and turned so that it looks woven. I've wanted to make one out of every stripe I've seen since then. Well I finally succumbed when I found a trio of coordinating fabrics that included a stripe. It's not the colors I would normally use but there was just something irresistable about them so here goes...








It still needs to be quilted but not bad for a day's work. I already know how I'm going to quilt it so that's half that battle. I'll give you a hint, it involves some really cool buttons I found! Looks like I'm ready for fall, doesn't it? Oh and here's Nathaniel checking it out!
