See if you can guess which pattern this is:
Remember all those 2" dark green squares I ripped apart from the too-dark sashing of Grand Illusion? I finally found a use for them! Furthermore, I am able to make this entire quilt from my stash! This new quilt is a Sandy-altered version of Orange Crush, a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt from 2005. I found an example on the web (and now cannot find it again to give proper credit) where the crafter substituted light blue / dark blue for Bonnie's black/red squares and used one print for all the Friendship Star centers. It's a bright, cheery quilt that gets me all excited!
My family knows I am not crazy about the color orange. So why have I made so many quilts with orange? Maybe because orange complements the greens and blues I do like. Below are just a few I have made. The first one was a gift to my brother who does like orange.
Orange quilt #1 - Modern Chevron
Orange quilt #2 - Halloweenie
Orange quilt #3 - Broncos Crossroad
Orange quilt #4 - Celtic Solstice
It's amazing how many different orange, peach, gold, and dark rust prints I had in my stash. This is going to be fun!
