"Orange You Glad"

When we first gave a sneak peak of this quilt HERE, we didn't know what to call it. Thanks to some suggestions from YOU our awesome readers on what to name it we had some great names to pick from. We loved the name "Orange you glad" from Sallie (thanks sallie), so here it is..


This quilt is entirely made up of greys and oranges, which I think makes a awesome combo!

This awesome quilt was so easy and fun to make. I found this pattern out of a old Fons and Porter's quilt magazine, back from Fall 09, it's titled Easy quilts -18 quick projects. The name of the quilt is called Serendipity. I tried to go onto their website and link it but could not find it anywhere. It's seems to have been removed.. :(

This quilt is made up of 5 different prints many of these prints are either sold out or discontinued but here they all are for references.
SPOTTED OWL SMOKE -Alexander Henry
BLOOM GREY - Paula prass
HUEVOS GREY - Michael miller
ZEN GARDEN SHERBET - patty young

The back is pieced using metro circles orange for half and dot n square for the other half. Sandwiched between these two pieces is a pieced bordered strip using the same fabric left overs from the front.

It's quilted using a wonky square free motion designed that I first had seen over on Oh Fransson. I loved the look from the start. Mine is a big more wonky then hers, since I'm still a newbie at free motion quilting, but I love the look none the less.

measurements: 54" x 72"
5 fabrics used
pieced backing
binding: holly jolly polka dot grey
quilted: free motion wonky squares by me
