Orange Ya Glad It's Sunday Night!

>> Sunday, April 11, 2010

This weekend has resulted in little bits of handsewing and lots of housework. The kids have been little grizzly bear cubs and I need some fabric relief! Oh yeah. I did that already!!

Added some more colours to my stash. I love the blue from Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley on the right. The lime green is from Mezzanine by Patty Young. The guitar print from Michael Miller I couldn't resist either with my husband being a guitar player. I've started to buy a minimum of 1/2 yard pieces to fill in my stash. I do plan on buying some colour grouped fat quarter packs too - to add some variety.

I am working to rebuild the colour wheel in my stash as I depleted some colours last year.

Most of the orange I had went into my daughter's quilt. This quilt was made during Pat Sloan's Orange Pile challenge. It's tied and has no batting. She loves it!

My replacement oranges and all the black and tan fabrics I collected last year somehow combined perfectly for this Blackbird Designs quilt. I can't wait to get into this one! I started cutting pieces many months ago now and am just about ready to focus on it. I want it done for this Fall.

I'll show some more Orange fabric tomorrow! It's back in action on my Design Wall!!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
