the orange quilt

Here it is.

I know you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for it.

THE orange quilt.  I’m going to call it ORANGE JOY.orange joy finished

This quilt is a gift for my son’s teacher.  She’s very special to our family, and he wanted to give her something special.  He picked out each and every fabric that was used, and he also chose the placement for each and every piece.  It was made with 30s fabrics, with the exception of that orange one…

It is a pattern called Turning Twenty, and I’d definitely use it again.  If you have fabric that has big design that you don’t want to lose…this is a perfect pattern for it.

The back is an orange polka dot (from the big orange craft store…).orange joy finished (2)

Because I only slightly procrastinated in the making of this quilt, it sort of a cheated finish.  I sewed the layers together inside out, and then turned it right side out.  I sewed 1/2 inch in from all the edges to create the hem/binding.  I then stitched in the ditch for the quilting.  Easy peasy.

Boy I really hope she likes orange.
