Spicy orange quilt

This lap quilt is a gift for my good friends Vikky and Chris who have kindly let me share their studio in Smarden for many summers as part of South East Open Studios.

Spicy orange, ginger and cinnamon were the inspiration for the palette, I used mostly collected fabrics from my stash. Some treasured Nancy Crow prints, some samples from a visit to the International Quilt Show in Barcelona, some overdyed offcuts from Ikea and a little dash of pink. Scraps from previous quilts were stitched into half square triangles and offcuts were spontaneously pieced log cabin style.

    This is a wonderful quilt. I made an orange and black quilt last fall. There is a picture of it on my blog, though it’s not a very good picture. Thanks for sharing your wonderful quilt.
