Finished Orange & Aqua

IMG_1957

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".

Very warm colors, and I like the wide meandering quilting. Well done.

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

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.
