Orange quilt, 2008

I made this quilt last year. It's based on Denyse Schmidt's "Hop, Skip and a Jump."
Unlike most projects that I get myself into, I really tried to follow the pattern. The problem was, each pattern piece was cut from cardboard, and over time, the pieces changed a little. I nicked a piece here, sliced a piece there, and my rotary cutter was frequently veering off course. I don't mind, though. If you regularly "square" your pieces, you still end up with a sound, and mostly rectangular quilt.
I suppose it's a good thing that I love, love, love those primitive Gee's Bend-like quilts, because that's where I think I'm headed.
By the way, the quilt is made with an assortment of fabrics, but mostly Joel Dewberry.

  1. Where does this one "live"? Is it the same quilt that you were making using some orange fabric that seemed to have a slightly faded quality? This looks brighter. Sunny and lovely!
