Wow, I'm back quilting


I need a quick and fun project to get me back in the quilting groove again.  I could pick up with any of the dozen wips (works in progress) I have or I can start a whimm (work hidden in my mind). There are even more of them!  Guess what I chose?  



I made two strip quilts and coordinating backings for the small bunk beds in the Sunshine room.  It is looking like this small room may become a bathroom so these  beds and the colour scheme will be moving into the guest room.  I need a coordinating quilt for the single bed that will also be there.  Three grand kiddies.  This'll work!  I do know I have used up most of these fabrics.  Gee, I'll have to go shopping!  lol

I have been seeing some quilts from Cheryl and Amanda's book, Sunday Morning Quilts.  The one on the bed  is the one I'm liking.  I'd luv to do it in a lighter look but this will get me started.

Lots of great quilts out there to get anyone inspired and for some inspiration, I'm linking up to The Needle and Thread Network.

Yay for you back to quilting. Your fabrics are morning sunshine and fresh orange juice all blended together. I, too, have been seeing lots of scrappy quilts...even using labels and selvege edgings and whatever else I don't know. They actually look pretty cute. Happy Quilting Dear...

Intertwined is quite easy to quilt so far.

It used to be quite rare to see those oranges and yellows and golds in a quilt - years ago I did a yellow challenge and had a terrible time just finding fabrics in those colours... Love your choices!

I love that you are quilting and in beautiful oranges too! I think a room for all the grandchildren and other guests sounds wonderful.
