    a couple of quilt tops I have made,

    the red and black one was made from 2 jelly rolls and some red and black material I hade in my stash
    the other one is a DNP made from curtain fabric they all had orange in them and for the life of me I had no idea what to do with it all, then someone here said retro fabrics were in and the DNP would look good with larger prints, So here it is. the third picture is true to colour.

    thank you. I have enough patches left to make a couple of pillow cases to match or maybe a bag to hold it when not in use

    thanks everyone, the orange quilt fabric was given to me from a friend after her mother inlaw died, I still have lots of fabric left from curtains 3 suitcases in all of material but a lot of if was faded by the time I sorted thru it I had reduced it to 2 suitcases, a lot of it I just made shopping bags out of it,and the rest is still waiting for me to find some thing to nice make with it.

    Red & black always seem popular, but those 2 made with vintage fabrics are pretty too. I especially like the orange one- the light orange print you have the most of is my favorite. :-)
