My quilt shop coworker, Kay, is working on an orange and white 9-patch quilt. She was buying a few fat quarters at the shop on Wednesday, and said how she'd found a lot of forgotten oranges in her stash. I offered to bring her my bin of oranges, left over from my favorite ZuZu's Petals quilt. I won't see Kay again until Sunday, but I put the orange tub in my car and have been driving it around and admiring the fabrics I can see through the plastic for the last few days.
I felt the need to make a fun quilt, and maybe use some of the oranges again before I gave them to Kay. I looked on the Oh, Fransson! blog, because she always has really cool color quilts. I found a link to this tutorial on Sew Mama Sew, and this fun block, Wonky Crosses. I realized I didn't have large enough pieces of orange in my stash to make these blocks, but seeing the photo made me think of the perfect use for those black, yellow, gray & white fabrics I have been collecting!
In just a few hours, I made 11 of these cute blocks! Well, I made 15 but some of them were a little TOO wonky! I don't know how big this will wind up being, but I'm going to make blocks until I run out of fun combinations.
I hope you were able to have some fun in YOUR sewing room this weekend!
