“Orange Sherbert” Quilt
When I was making blocks for “Quilt of Many Colors,” I made some pink blocks that just didn’t work.
So, I used them to make this cute little quilt that I’ve grown to love. My camera always makes quilts look crooked, but they aren’t. And, the flash can wash out colors.
Here’s a corner of the quilt top with the backing and binding fabrics, all from my stash:
Here’s the center block, so you can see how I quilted “Orange Sherbert.” I used the freehand daisy pattern again, but I made it denser by echoing the daisy and by using curves–like the outside curves of the petals–to travel. I used Signature’s Victorian Rose thread, which is a soft pink.
I’m going to keep this little quilt for a bit–likely until a girl baby is born to one of my kin. I’m going to hang it in an upstairs bedroom.
