Description

I discovered the Modern quilting movement and it saved my life!!  Well not exactly but I knew I had found a quilting home.  Somehow I stumbled onto a few blogs with fresh, new, updated modern quilts on them and I fell in love.  Cluck Cluck Sew swiftly became my favorite and I found the perfect quilt to make for my daughter's 30th birthday.  Her favorite color is orange and this quilt fit the bill to a T!  In order to find enough oranges I bought a lot of WOF quarter yards and FQ's.

The backing is flannel.  I had a friend FMQ it because I wasn't brave enough to try it on a gift. The binding is pieced.  My daughter Loved it.

Hi, there! :)

This is beautiful and cheery- no wonder your daughter loved it.

What a beauty! I've been thinking of making something somewhat similar... Are those white fabrics you used solids?

Really nice job! I love the color, and white sets it off so well.

True

Oh what a wonderful quilt...love the orange and white!

Slicksister

Pave Yes, the white is Kona White. I buy it by the bolt now! LOL

Love! I know what you mean about the modern quilt movement although I've yet to make one. And a year ago I would have told you I'm not a fan of orange but I have evolved. Yours is beautiful and it's because of all that wonderful Kona white. Check out freshlemonsquilts blog. She's right up there with Cluck Cluck Sew.

Terryt1955 Yes, I love Fresh Lemons, too. Isn't her stuff great? Thanks for the nice words.

That is beautiful!! I've come to love orange, too, but I never thought I'd do a whole quilt with it. You've changed my mind.

Slicksister

Damnskippy Glad I could enable you!!

This is really a cheerful and comfy quilt. Anyone would love to wrap up in it! I especially love the blue color for the backing.

Slicksister

Terrysim Thanks so much. I love the flannel back too.
