A New Fondness. . .

Monday, November 29, 2010

This is my latest "mini" quilt. I'm part of this round's Modern Swappers group, and this is the project I came up with. My partner has modeled her sewing room in orange, purple and gray. Initially, I was a bit hesitant; but, I definitely have a new fondness for this color combination. It reminds of sweet grape and orange popsicles on a warm summer day. With the exception of the gray, this was stitched up with strips leftover from several larger projects. I did a square spiral quilting to emphasis the strips. Wouldn't a full size quilt in this colorway be fun!

Hope you all had a lovely holiday!


  1. Love it! These colors work so well together - love your inspiration imagery too. You should definitely do this in a larger quilt. You have a lucky partner to receive this swap!

  2. This is exactly like grape juice and orange popsicles! What an awesome description...I love the colors together and the block is just fantastic!

  3. Yup, the block is outstanding.
    As far as the grey think of it as the city sidewalks you skipped on while enjoying those popsicles. :)
