Adventure Awaits Quilt

Adventure Awaits by Kelli Marshall

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 56" X 56"

Finished Blocks : 8" blocks

Rating : Confident Beginner

Designed By : Kelli Marshall

Sometimes the most effective graphic quilts are made with the simplest blocks. “Adventure Awaits” is one of those quilts.

This design was inspired by the wild adventures of designer Kelli Marshall’s three small boys as they chased each other all hours of the day, from sunrise to sundown. This two-block quilt owes its sophistication to a simple rotation of the Arrow block in the layout.

Add to the sophistication by creating the quilt in soft earth tones as in the quilt shown, or mix things up with plaids or prints. Whatever you choose, you know that your own adventure is waiting.
