Orange Dream

Ok, here it is! Totally a departure for me, and I love it. Very fun and cheery. I have no idea what I'll do with it, so I've left it at the shop and they're going to hang it as a sample maybe. It is a big quilt, so there was really no place to get a decent full picture of it. Elizabeth's pattern was very easy to follow and this was certainly fast to make. You don' t need to use jelly rolls, you can use your own fabric selections. I think it would be fun to come up with something from your stash. When I make this again I will cut extra strips to make a kit for a friend. Wouldn't that be a fun gift? For those wondering about yardage instead of strips, I used (18) 1/6th cuts of fabric that yielded 2 strips of each piece of fabric.

Yesterday was a fun day at work. It was busy most of the time I was there. Best part, a visitor! Connie, of Monica's girl gang, and her husband Dave (gosh I hope that's right, I should have taken notes) came for a visit! She's super nice and my blurry picture doesn't capture her energy and charm. It was great to meet you Connie. Monica's busy working on her big move, but like many other's, I've missed her.
Ok, Crossing Jordan is now on twice a day, so I can really get some sewing done. I have started machine quilting my little yellow quilt and I could easily get that done if I applied myself.
See you later aligators.

Lovely, Pam! I wish I knew how to make quilts! I don't even know what the term "Machine quilting" means! LOL!

Oooh, that orange quilt is so much a summer time quilt. It reminds me of the orange creamsicles that the ice cream truck would sell when I was a kid. Beautiful!

I love the way you put fabrics together. You are so talented and I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this baby finished today. I had just seen the start of it a few days ago. I like to reflect on my quilts and take years to finish them! LOLOLOL. Becareful, or you'll be writing a book someday sharing your brilliance with the rest of us :)

SUCH A CUTE QUILT!! :) I love the color! And SO LUCKY YOU to get to meet Connie. I was hoping to get to meet her when I was out west, but our pal Monica decided to buy a house right before I came out! Silly girl. There's always next year! :)

I am in love with that quilt. I don't know what it is, but orange has been so attractive to me lately. Never been a favorite color, but I'm actually doing orange for my studio.

That's a pattern I just might be able to tackle. Is it from her new book or one of her older ones?
