Finished Orange & Aqua

I love these colors, I only wished the weather matched this quilt!
  I quilted this with a loose meandering pattern & its bound with a Moda solid.  Those little dog blocks (fabric by Heather Ross) are my favorite.  And no they’re not deer….although yes a couple of them look like deer. :)  This one is for sale in my etsy shop, unless I can convince myself that my boys need one more quilt to add to the 15-ish they already have.
The back is pieced with strips of an Amy Butler print and some matching pieces from the front.     It measures 37.5″ x 53″.

    I love it, great job on the colors. Strange, I've been hoarding orange and aquas for awhile now…

    Two colors I wouldn't have thought to put together. Love it! Geez I need to learn to think outside the box. I just may have to do one like this for my daughter's room.

    *facepalm* after seeing this wonderful quilt about 8 times, I just realized why it looked familiar to me. I made a similar one with different fabrics/colors for my sis-in-law for Christmas. Ohh, the brain is not catching up to me after my 2 weeks off from work LOL

    Allison – love this quilt! I need to make 3 baby quilts for some teachers at my school and this one will be great!

    Love the way you've set up your website. I need to put some tutorials on mine.


  21. Tracy Suzanne January 7, 2010 at 5:42 am #

    Hey Allison. This is so bright, clean & fresh. It reminds me of the beaches and Indian River oranges (here in Florida). It's really beautiful.

    Hugs and smiles :) Tracy

    What a great finish!

    I selectively used that orange dog print on my last orange/aqua piece too. It was perfect for the recipients as they have a greyhound.

  31. Miss Nancy January 7, 2010 at 4:34 pm #
