Quilt 137 - Teal Coffee Quilt

During our stay at Pacific Beach in January, we made a trip to the quilt shop in Ocean Shores. I found a pack of squares from a line of coffee inspired fabrics that were too cute to leave on the shelf. I bought a yard of the teal and brown companion fabric for the border.

A few different patterns went through my mind, but I decided to just leave the squares as they were and make a simple quilt that showed off the colors and design of the fabric. I plan on quilting it with cross-hatching and binding in the same fabric as the border. It will hang on the wall across from my kitchen.
