Because oranges are good for my health, right?
Batiks were on sale. Then things started to get a little fuzzy. A couple of light background oranges. Then, oh, that's a pretty orange...
I've got way more orange now, so I'm very happy.
And remember when I joked last time about doing an orange Ohio star quilt? (And my sweet friend Chantal flat out egged me on? Well, that idea is now stuck in my head. Stuck so hard that I can practically see the quilt. Orange Ohio stars, set on point, with alternating blue blocks. A pieced border with hourglass blocks, with a darker blue outer border.
Can you see it now, too?
(Not gonna start another quilt... Not gonna start another quilt... Not gonna start another quilt...)
So, in order not to start another quilt, and because my new oranges hadn't arrived yet, I pieced a 6" Ohio star block with not-orange fabric. No, no reason. I just like Ohio stars, that's all. Really.
There's been other sewing going on, too, but it's not time to reveal yet. But I do like throwing out teasers.
And I finally decided that I'll hand quilt Katie's Star Patch. My hand quilting is light years better than my machine quilting, and I want to give this quilt my best.
And away we go!
Linking to Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework, because that's where the fun never ends.
