goodbye...

This is the quilt I made for the 4SQS5. The challenge was to make a monochromatic quilt, only adding black and white. It turned out cheerful and summery.... always a bit sad to let your swap quilts out of the house. But now its on its way to ..... a good home.

its great, very fun, and the orange is perfect. a quilting friend told me that after finishing a quilt to give away, it needs to live with you for at least two more weeks until you've admired it thoroughly before you can give it away cheerfully.

So pretty and rally interesting. You have to click it to really appreciate it. I love the Heather Ross lawn and I see that huge beachball print from a few years ago (Alexander Henry?) over on the left.

It seems like this might be an easy way to step into pictoral quilts. I'd love to see a tutorial, I might even buy the pattern if you write it!

Wow, this is a great little quilt! Someone will be very happy to get this one! I love it...orange isn't my favorite color most of the time, but this one just sings! I like how you did the horizon not horizontal, and then the opposite angle on the bottom of the dress. Very fun quilt!
