Here is my "inspiration" photo It's from Design Seeds, ages ago. It was buried in my "solids" bin, and when I went searching for fabric for this new test quilt, it leapt out and shouted, "Choose me!"

The block needs to be 16" finished, and I didn't have enough of the cacti fabric. So I pieced together some cacti and some sagebrush, with the khaki background. The prints are from an old Northcott collection of state flowers fabrics. Sagebrush is the state flower of Nevada, and the Saguaro Cactus is the state flower of Arizona.
I don't know why Northcott didn't use the sagebrush in bloom, but here is a close up:
This is going to be a fun quilt, I can't wait to show you the finish!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Arizona is sounding pretty good today, it was -10 degrees when I woke up this morning!
Keep warm and come back on Friday to see the newest Jelly Roll Party finish.
