I made it to a fabric store yesterday (a very sweet Valentine's day outting.....almost better than chocolate.....almost!).....and I picked up a bunch of orange fabrics for my Jubilee quilt! The gal cutting them said she was getting her dose of vitamin A while cutting! HA!
Hubby and I are headed out today, again, to find a few more! Just can't have too many orange fabrics! Right!?! lol Or am I the only one who goes nuts for this color!?!
So, the pattern I'm doing is from a quilt I saw at the Red & White show in NY last March.
I just fell in love with everything about it! Especially that the maker did 3 different borders on it! Love that! I posted after the show all the pics I had taken, and I made comments about those borders a few times......something to the effect that I wish I was more bold and independent like that maker obviously was. Well.......I'm 50 now, and I can be bold and independent.......and do 3 different borders in orange if I want to! YEAH!
It's going to be all scrappy orange and white, and the big pieces of solid red on the quilt......those will be strings! Woohoo! Love that string piecing!
I'm starting on the cutting tonight!
