Custom Orange Quilt who could say no!


The other day I got a request to make my diagonal quilt in orange, white, and cream.  And how could I turn that down.  If you have followed my blog from the early days you might remember that I created a all orange quilt that my wife hated and every one loved. Well now I get to have another one (for a day or 2) but hey that just means I need to do my norm and make 2!  The pile above is what we finally decided on material wise.


My favorite part of quilting is chopping the material up.  I think I have more fun doing that then any thing else.  Here you see the fun pile of fabrics I turned into this quilt.


One thing I like about these quilts is how interesting they look while constructing them.  Instead of working from top to bottom I work from top right down to bottom left.  Sadly the orange and my tan walls do not like each other but above you can see the colors better.


Its funny that no matter when I take pictures, I have all the kids run into the room and want to get into the shot.  Here is cute little Julia trying to sneak into the photo shoot.


And of course here is the completed top  I love how this pattern of mine goes together.  It is a complete random fling of color and fun.  Can't wait to see how the customer likes it.

I haven't done a diagonal quilt yet. It looks so fun and interesting. I used to hate orange but it is growing on me. I catch myself buying it on purpose now. :) Pretty! Glad I stopped by.
