Orangey goodness: Update

(Note to Leah and Julia: Still not about food.)

I finished up my block for my virtual quilting bee and shipped it back to the UK today.

I started out with this pile of orange fabric...

And made this block.

I hope she likes it! I used the Map of the States tutorial on Oh, Fransson! Check out Elizabeth's quilt made up of these blocks. Gorgeous.

looks good, Katie. My favorite fabric is the orange flower with the black center.

Gorgeous block Katie! I've been thinking about trying out this tutorial and might just have to now after seeing your block!

I love it! Almost as much as orange rolls.

This is very nice. I like the randomness of it! The colours are just tangy!

I love this color! Your block came out great :o)
You have inspired me to make an orange quilt of some sort.

Very cute. I love the scrappiness to it! Thanks for your encouragement on quilting. Maybe I'll try the free motion one of these days.
