Tangerine & Pink

The little tangerine and pink quilt for Olivia is all finished! It's just so cute, fresh and fun :)

There were quite a variety of shades of colours and prints in the quilt since most of the fabrics were handed over to me by Olivia's mummy. But I like that it didn't have just one shade of tangerine or pink... makes it a little more scrappy. And I do love my scrappy!

I love this block the best. I don't know why.

And as you can see, I stippled the quilt... I haven't stippled in EONS. It felt a little awkward to begin with but I fell back into it pretty quickly.

The back was mainly a pink and white dot because I felt the front was busy enough.

I added strips of floral prints and the bright orange prints that Olivia's mummy professed a great deal of love for.

I used Kona Orange for the binding because I wanted it to just frame the quilt, not fight with the quilt top.

I can't wait to deliver this :) I don't think she's having a baby shower, or even a sprinkle, so I'll probably give this to her the next time I see her. Hope she likes it!

Orange was always a color that I hated until I found a fat quarter pack of fabrics that also came with lots of pinks. NOW I know what I am going to do with those lucious fabrics.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!!!

I love it - I really like the scrappy pink/orange look. With just the right amount of white so your eyes don't go buggy. It's very sunny and fun!

I love that block too! It's all the dots, of course. I have a whole stack of orange and pink fabric. sometimes I just stare at it. I should turn it into a cute quilt like this one!

Sort of off topic but if you don't ever wear jeans... what do you wear everyday?? I'm very intrigued, as I am in a jeans rut and would love ideas :)
