ORANGE

I'm very fond of the colour orange , I also like using yellow and black . Yesterday was a sort of no go day so perfect for doing this quilt . The yellow and orange put a little spice into my day .
 
The fabric was a 1/2 jelly roll . I find jelly rolls nice to use , the colours have been co,ordinated so no scouting around for matching  pieces .

This is the backing fabric , perfect . Also I like using patterns with houses .

I machine quilted the 3 long brick panels but I shall be hand quilting the rest . I have yet to decide what to do . I plan to applique down the sides . You will be seeing this again when it is finished .It is still very cold here in England . We did have a beautiful sunny day earlier in the week . I was able to sit outside with my crochet .This last few days my fish pond has lots of ice on top . The fish are well under the board that I  use to cover half the pond . I 'm so looking forward to Spring

I love the vibrant colours of your new quilt, the little house fabric is lovely..........it is still bitterly cold here on the Welsh Border, far too cold to even think about being outside........hurry up Spring!

Your runner is just the thing to put a punch of life into a dull day! Orange is a color that refuses to be ignored...I'm very fond of it, also. The daisy prints are wonderful!

It looks wonderful, though orange is a colour that I never use and don't like. However you have made it look very inviting!

I can't wait for spring too - this dreary cold weather is so depressing. Those are lovely sunny colours though - very cheering!

Delicious!
I'm a recent convert to the colour orange (thanks to my hubby and the quilt I'm making for him!) I love your quilt and think that backing fabric is just perfect. Looking forward to seeing the finish on this beauty.
