It was an orange day.....

I quilted the orange 16 patch quilt yesterday, just my usual large meandering for a nice soft quilt.  Hobbs 80/20 batting for nice loft.



I decided to do the binding all by machine, stitching right next to the binding on the top to catch the flap on the back.  I got one side done and started the next and decided I was done for the day.

It was so cloudy and dreary here yesterday that your orange would have brightened things up! I can't wait to see the whole quilt face on. I love the binding fabric.

The more I see of this one, the better I love it. And orange isn't my color at all, but this is rich and happy.

That is a happy, sunny orange quilt.

What I think of is "sunshine". I'm now a fan of orange. You've opened my eyes. Alice

Oh, I love this orange quilt. I have started to sew some bindings on my machine too. It all depends on who the quilt is for, if I know it will be used over and over, it gets machine stitched. When I get better at it, I expect I will sew them all on the machine.

Oh, that one is very nice. I'd like a better look.

I am finishing up an orange quilt for my daughter today, the last half of the binding. I love your quilt, I used to not like orange but the past 15 years I have just loved it and it is so happy. I also like the backing fabric, I have always liked that fabric but really didn't know what to do with it and I think it made a very nice back!

Could we get an all over pic of the orange quilt when it is done, would love to see it all done.
