I made this for a friend who's favorite color is orange so this is all shades of orange batiks. The pattern is "wickedly easy" - which really is wickedly easy! I've gone back and forth in my mind about this one. Sometimes I love it, and sometimes I doubt it. I've got it sandwiched and am quilting with my walking foot. Opinions?

It will brighten a dreary day, and be great for fall/halloween. If Orange is her color, she will love it! I think I'd find some of the darkest rust/brown for the binding to frame it.

I have a DIL whose favorite color is orange. I have struggled about just how much orange to use for her lap quilt. Now I know.........Thanks

I think anyone who likes orange will love it! I like orange and I love it. I think anyone who doesn't like orange will love it. It is very pretty. Go for it!

Whew, thank you! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who thinks it's ok to overdose on a color!
