Purple and Orange

While at my local fabric store, I spotted this fabric. One of Erin McMorris’s fabrics from the Park Slope line. This one started it all.

I got an orange fabric from the same line and took them home to see what I could work with out of my stash.

After some mixing and matching, here is what I came up with. I was a little short on one of the fabrics, but luckily I knew my fabric shop had it.

And here is the finished quilt top.

Finished! And for sale.

This quilt was my first attempt at free motion quilting. I used orange thread. On the brown and orange fabrics, I used a decorative scallop stitch. On the pink and purple fabrics I did free motion quilting following the pattern of the fabric. It’s easier to see from the back.

I am so thrilled with this quilt! I love the quilting. After washing it, it was perfectly crinkly. I love it for a girl because it isn’t overly girly as well as bright and happy.

Before and After – Living Room

Soon after painting my dining room orange, there was a giant ice storm that left me in my house for three days. Seeing as I can’t sit still for long, I decided to tackle my living room. I went with a deep purple.
