Two in a Row

Holy cow....Two posts in a row. How was your weekend? Mine turned out great. I did finish the quilt on the longarm and bound this morning before church. This is "Tangerine Dreams". It uses our precut strips that we sell in the store (Orange Happy Strips) plus Sandy Gervais' "Fresh Squeezed" fabrics by Moda for the centers and the borders and binding. The pattern is "King's Ransom" by 4th & 6th Designs. It was a lot of fun to make and is brighter orange in real life

I hope you all had a great Mother's Day. After church and lunch and grocery shopping, I took a 3 hour nap. While napping, a strong, handsome man shoveled almost 2 yards of compost into my front flower bed. All I had to do this afternoon is plant! How wonderful is that? I have a few more things to put into containers, and I think I'll get that done tomorrow night. The last load of laundry is in the dryer and it's finale night on Survivor.

A quilt finish, a nap, gardening, laundry complete and Survivor. What more could a girl want?

I love the orange quilt! Looks like a really easy pattern.

Glad you had a great mother's day! I think that we mother's should be spoiled more often!

Wow, great oranges. It's odd how colors fall in and out of favor. Orange is so hot (pardon the pun) right now, and your quilt is beautiful.

Orange is one of my favorite colors and it is so good to see so many good orange fabrics coming out.
This quilt is beautiful.
