Starting a new idea...........

Did anyone have a bet on how long it would be before I started a new project?  I had to squeeze one in.  I pressed a whole stack of orange batiks to get them ready to cut about a week ago.  I couldn't wait any longer so I cut 2.5" strips and I'm starting my orange quilt.  I want to do a series of one color quilts and did the yellow one a couple years ago.  This one will be 16 patches and a few plain squares from one of the larger patterned batiks.  I also cut some 1.5" strips so there may be a few mini 16 patches thrown in too.  The design will develop as I work on it.
While I'm at it I cut a second strip to cut squares and rectangles for my trays.  This is the first group of 16 that I cut.  I laid them out like a colorwash and like it so well I might have to sew a couple blocks like this.

You just can't ever get enough of orange, a fantastic, vibrant color. By the way, I had no doubt a new project would be on its way!

I never wear orange but I sure use it in quilts! I don't know if I was reading your blog when you made your yellow quilt. Can you repost a picture of it sometime?

Morning Wanda,
I started an orange, yellow and purple quilt yesterday, Must be
something in the air. I just wanted to play for once. I finished the backing on my daughters quilt. I used flannel and she loves it. Thanks for selling me the top. They are her colors. Have a great day.

This is the second orange quilt I looked at this morning, and just saw another one yesterday. Got my mouth watering. I think I'll go rummage through my stash.

Not at all surprised that you started on a new project! I absolutely love the "oranges" - such a bright and perkey color!

Muddling Through said...

That's what I love about you, Wanda - you're always doing something interesting! The orange is a burst of brightness in winter's drabness.

Gari said...

You are doing a one color batik quilt and I am doing and every color one. I know you will have your's done way before me but I'll keep plugging along. :-)

Isn't starting a new quilt just the best fun? I would never have enough self control to use only one color, but I bet yours is going to be beautiful!
