    My DH saw a log-cabin block I was working on (for him, but he didn't know that at the time). It was in brown and orange, his two favorite colors, but I didn't care for it that much. Anyway, he said that if it was him, he would put orange and peach in a cross shape, with some embroidery thrown in. Then he saw some 9-patch blocks that I had made, and said he'd put some of those in too. I changed my mind a few times in the layout of this quilt, but he was really hands-on when he found out it was a late anniversary present for him. He's happy with it, and I'm happy with it, so that's all that matters. Here's "Just Peachy". For the pictures, we laid it on a regular size bed, but it's for a king-sized bed. Thanks for looking, and please don't forget that I'm a beginner.

    P.S. He just wanted the quilt to put on top of a king-size bed, but I'm going to make something to hang to the floor under it, probably in white.

    Great job! I love orange. In fact I want to paint one of my rooms a cantelope color but just can't bring myself to do it yet!

    I really wanted it to be something he'd like, not something I thought he'd like. And he's got good taste in decorating, so I thought he had good taste in picking out colors. Like I said, I wasn't too crazy about the brown and orange together -- It was too dark.

    I think it is a bit sweeter that he wanted to be involved. Lovely job.
