I love…

Mexico 2 07 021_thumb[3]


Seeing an idea,


turn into a quilt.
A quilt that needs ironing…..and basting and quilting and binding oh my!
P.S. The pattern for this quilt can be found on my sidebar or from the link at the top that says Tutorials. Its the Orange Quilt Pattern.
P.S. #2 I’ve had some questions about names of the fabrics from a couple of posts ago. If I didn’t get back to you its because I don’t know the name, but I bought them all here.

    Honestly I probably would have never put these two colors together, but it is absolutely beautiful. This is the beauty of the internet, we can learn so much from each other. Thank you for sharing your talents with us!

    I love a quilt idea that starts on graph paper filled in with colored pencils like this! Cool quilt!

    Great colors! I always start with graph paper too. It helps me to see if my idea is going to work! :)

    I think we sometimes try to make things too complicated. I love the simple but dynamic design of this quilt. The colors and fabrics are great. I have started a similar quilt with black and white.

    Your quilt is darling! I love to draw my quilts out on graph paper too! :)

    That quilt would match my living room perfectly. You know, in case you don't have a home for it.
