We got a little break in the rain so I had to run outside and take some photos of my finished 100 patch. Look at her in all her orange glory! I am so happy I went with such a bright, fun colour. She goes with nothing else in the house... scratch that, she goes with almost nothing else in the house. I have an orange colander, planter and a bunch of orange clothes. But that's about it. So really, she sticks out like a traffic cone. An awesome traffic cone!!
I'm entering her in Rachel's Festival of Scrappiness over at Stitched in Color and I'm hoping I can sneak in. See I don't know if she 100% fits the criteria. The top is supposed to be a minimum 60% scraps, which if you look at this beauty she obviously isn't. But wait... she kind of is.
When I bought the orange for the background I forgot the important detail of actually doing the math and ended up buying less than I needed. Thankfully I had orange scraps from a project I made a billion years ago so I was able to piece together enough bits and pieces to yield a slightly smaller than planned quilt. And the back and binding are scrappy, too. So that gets me some points, right?
Oh, and I love, love, love the quilting on this one. Love it so much I would marry it and let it decide which way the tp unrolls! Yup, that's my version of the iconic Denyse Schmidt scroll. I had a bugger of a time getting started but once I did it was all good.
Ok, now back to quilting Katie's quilt!
