    My latest project

    I'm working on this quilt for a friend who likes orange, green and white. I'm thinking of putting his name down the side in green block letters on white. Haven't got that far in my planning yet. For some reason, orange has become my new favorite color. I don't know how that happened. I used to really dislike it.

    I love the way this quilt is turning out. Who would have thought of green and orange together.

    I don't particularly like lime green or orange, but it really works in your quilt. I may rethink those colors.

    Really like your quilt. These are probably my least favorite colors but am changing my mind.

    Makes me think of lime and orange sherbet. Summer favorites.

    This is gorgeous, love the color combination (although it reminds me to eat more veggies).

    My new-found love of aqua came out of the blue, too about a year and a half ago when a friend painted the master bath in her new house that color. I used it in my own bathroom do-over and it is now finding it's way into one or two quilts I've since made

    Orange and green make a great color combination. So nice and crisp with the clean white. I am sure it will be treasured.
