    Pinks and Oranges

    I made this cute little quilt sometime back for a friend that was having a baby girl. They really didn't want to go with the pinks but I popped it off the chart with the bright oranges in the fabric to offset the pale pink. I really turned out great and was a big hit at the shower....not to mention...I took orders for 3 more, exactly the same!!!

    Sew pretty. The quilt is darling. I am sure the baby girl will like the added bright orange, also.

    Very Nice. This takes me back, Hot Pink and Orange in combination were popular in the early 1970's.

    What a beautiful quilt; very precious. Obviously you hit it out of the ballpark if others have requested exactly the same fabrics, etc. Great job. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I just love when a quilt's colors are outside the norm, and this is a great example of how well they go together. I love the pop of the orange against the pink. Great job.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Who'd a thunk that pink and orange would look so well together? Excellent!
