falling in love, twice


It just happend in a split second. I can't help it, I just did... First I fell in love with the big zig zag quilts. Thinking about making one in purple, yellow and orange. Then I saw this beautiful quilt over at a quilt is nice. And there was no mistake, I was completely and hopelessly in love...
The good thing is, I had a lot of the fabric I needed waiting in my stash. It was purchased this summer in Seattle, at Quiltfest. The orange as a potential apron, the rest because of their beauty. Who can resist Heather Ross' Medocini line? (Not me...) So I started cutting and sewing. The quilt will be 45" by 60" I think. I don't have enough fabric, so I ordered another half a yard.
This will be my fifth orange and blue quilt this year. I guess that will qualify orange and blue as my favorite color combination this year?
Have fun, keep sewing...

That looks like a fun quilt to do! Easy, and very striking. Yeah, somehow I'd guess that blue and orange was your fave color combo! *grin*

It looks great. I'm loving all the combos I've seen of the zig zag quilt in blogland.
