    wooooooooo hoooooooooo I finally finished making the Orange Crush quilt top yesterday!!!! I decided to go with a plain solid navy border instead of a scrappy border since the quilt was very busy.

    I am going to call it "Lazy Days of Summer"!!

    Wow-that is really pretty. So bright and sunny and cheerful!! My first thought when I saw it was sunflowers. But, I love the name Orange Crush for it. Great quilt-and I like the border, too.

    Great name for your quilt. Reminds me of a field of black eyed susans. I really like this one.

    Oh Aggi I'm so jealous I'm still on step 4 and it looks like it'll stay that way until after the Holidays. It's beautiful! Cudos to you! :P

    Gorgeous! You did a great job! I stalled at the scrappy borders that do not fit. :roll: You've encouraged me to take another stab at it!

    thanks everyone for all the nice comments. I really enjoyed making it and now I plan to start the Tobacco Road mystery soon. I think it's already revealed, but I copied all the instructions anyway!!!

    Cheers!!!!

    Cheers!

    You are one talented lady. My question to you and the others that can produce such beautiful works is when do you sleep? I NEVER have enough hrs in the day to cook supper and tend to laundry, etc. All of my sewing usually coms on the weekend which is why my house is such a mess!
    But you quilt is stunning! I just kind of got off track for a minute. :-)

    Good job!. I am ready to quilt my Orange Crush after moaning and groaning over it for months. My son likes it so he inspired me to finish it. I had to go for help from my LQS to arrange the rows on point. Mine looks different than yours but I am using a black border for the same reason you chose yours. Good decision!
