I thought I'd go for a second entry into the Blogger's Quilt Festival and selected the quilt I made for my husband as an entry into the Two Colour Quilt category.
Made especially for my hubby, who loves the colour orange and needed his own quilt for keeping warm while he digitally paints every evening.
|I used Elizabeth Hartman's Crazy 9-Patch block tutorial to make the ManDarin quilt (I just eliminated the lattice which created negative space in the original).|
The ManDarin quilt is nothing but crazy nine patch blocks on the front,
|This pieced backing is one of my all time favourites!|
with leftover blocks on the back!
|A vast variety of orange fabrics were gathered to make these blocks and the odd bit of chocolate brown breaks things up.|
Quilted simply with a meander stitch
and bound with a favourite Flea Market Fancy fabric. It was a sure-fire hit with my hubby and is to be credited with my new appreciation for the colour orange. :o)
