THE LAST ORANGE QUILT, I MEAN IT!





I am so sick of using up my stash! I just don't think I can go on with this commitment! Honestly, it's really hard to do week after week.

.
I've made a dint in it, I used up all the red squares that I had, well only 4 others left, but I threw them in the garbage bag...I'm done with them!


On the other hand, I still have so much orange left over,
and I don't think I have enough time left in years to use
it all. Really! It seems that I must like the brightness
of what it is, but using it all the time is just making me
stressed out!


On Saturday, I started using the little orange and white triangle squares, and used up some of the same size in just squares, I had to add white because I had to finish using up the stuff!

.
It's probably a crib size and actuallly looks ok, but let me tell you I am having withdrawal jitters as I just am sick and tired of looking at orange!

.
Needless to say, I didn't have a hard time finding something to put on the back...yep, lots of prints in these colours also.




.
I s'till have scraps of orange left over, I still have some of the dots in orange and white left over, but to tell you the truth, I'm putting it all in a ziploc bag and putting it away at the bottom of my stash.

.
I'm going to spend money and buy fabric and if I look at orange again....shoot me, I mean it...do it...

.
The top quilt is for my sister in law's birthday. She doesn't read my blog so I know that she won't see this, and as she is tall, this quilt will be well used. The back is beige and it is a simple quilt.

.
We are having glorious weather, I mean glorious. Yesterday, I did my hand work outside and actually had to come in as it was so warm in the back yard. Wahoo for all of us who know that spring is so close. Crispy also warned me that she may be sending us a snow storm from the Dakotas, so I'm not going to get the shorts and sandals out today. Some green though as I shall look wierd at bridge without it...
