Orange Crush Pieced













I absolutely love this quilt! I had my doubts, thinking my spinning stars would be way too dark, but now that it is together, I couldn't be happier. Thanks Bonnie for all these great quilt patterns! You have stretched my fabric selection capabilities and you and all these other wonderful participants have been there to help when I needed it. I am going to put the small border on and add all my leftover split four patches. I think it really finishes this quilt off. Another great mystery solved! :D

I saw your top on quiltvillechat, and it was one of my favorites. Love those fall colors, and I think I like the little less bright colors like yours. Unfortunately, mine has bright orange, but I think I'll love it when it's done.

Karen said...

Your "Orange Crush" is great. I like dark colors so your version really grabbed my attention.

It's great, Carol! I might have make another one in darker fabrics. Mine is so bright, I'm tempted to call it, "Warning - UV Danger"! It's next up in the progression . . . I am putting borders on my Quilt for an Hour project . . . a Camp sample. Wish you could come!

It is gorgeous Carol! I think you definately have a great sense for color regardless of what you think. Quit buying those kits, you have the knack for putting great color schemes together.

Hi Carol - I haven't visited you before I don't think - love the way your orange crush has turned out in those more muted colours

Jan said...

Love it Carol. Thinking of making another one myself. Mine is very bright and I have it half-way put together. Wasn't this a fun project.

Verrrrrrrrrry nice! I agree with the other comments----your "dark earthy" colors are fabulous!!!

Love your colour choices!! Your orange plays nicely with the other fabrics rather than shouting out. One of the nicest OCs I have seen so far - congrats :)
