    Warning: put your sunglasses on!

    Some of you may remember that awhile ago I was seeking orange fabrics for a quilt for a new-found cousin who loves that color.

    The generosity that subsequently flowed was amazing. In addition to some great trades, several of you also just GAVE me fabric. I have so much orange, I could make a slew of quilts now. I intend to start donating them.

    Below is the first charity quilt that will go out; it's a baby quilt about 29" square; and it will go to Project Linus (www.projectlinus.org).

    I followed the very fun and fast "All Squares Tube" tutorial found here:

    Thanks again, you orange stashers!

    ooops; I have to find another recipient for this quilt; they don't take anything less than 32". Suggestions?

    Okay, back to work on a 32 or 36" for PL.

    Our hospital likes the premie quilts 28"-32" to cover the isolets. Yours would definately work.

    I love it and the way you rotated the different fabrics. It reminds me of all of the oranges I eat everyday. With yellow backing, this will make a child smile. :)

    Jilliane, if you were a part of my Project Linus chapter, I would be grateful to have such a bright and thoughtful blanket. It would go to the preemie nursery at a local hospital. Thanks for sharing your pic.
