Orange and Purple

I made the mistake once before of asking an engaged couple what colors they would like their quilt. It didn’t turn out so bad last time. It fact I really liked it by the time I was done.  But this time? I am a more than a little fearful at the end result. Although, in the years since I last made an orange quilt for my brother in law there are much nicer oranges available… Or maybe I just grab them at every opportunity knowing how rare a nice orange fabric is…

oh wait! I just found another orange quilt I did. I loved that one. Sigh, why did I sell it?

Baby quilts done

Whew, I finished quilting jules and silvia’s quilts. Even though I am in double digits for making quilts I still can’t seem to make straight lines. They are not rectangles, much closer to rhombuses but, hopefully they are not that far in their schooling to identify objects with 4 unequal sides.

I experimented with blanket binding on Silvia’s quilt, my main disappointment was that this light pink is transparent. You can see the fabric pattern right through the binding. It was easier to sew than I thought, however the zig zag stitch was crucial.
