Tempting Tangerines; TGIFF! The Beast is DONE!

8:26:00 PM

I ask you:

Is there anything better than a squishy package waiting to be ripped open, just sitting there on your doorstep?

Monthly?

>insert cheesy grin here<

It feels like Christmas once a month when my Around the Color Wheel bundle from Marmalade Fabrics arrive; man, I love my mail lady (and Tammy!)!
YUMMY!! Makes me want an orange popsicle.

I'm thinking of pairing them with some pinks with a Kona White background...what do you think? would make a pretty lap quilt...

... man they look fresh together!

Speaking of fresh.

Fresh off the machine, that is. Look! My Beast is done:
GLORY GLORY!!!
I have been working on this quilt for over a year; I had my Gamboge Group mates in the Simply Solids Bee's help with 11 of the blocks.
 STATS:
(25) 21"x21" blocks
(6) Kona solids
105"x105" finished size
Pieced by myself and 11 of my Simply Solids mates
Machine quilted by Melissa @ Sew Shabby

... I didn't get a chance to photograph the backside today; I'll do that another day and post about it in the future. It's a simple pieced back with some gorgeous Joel Dewberry blocks :)

Today I'm (ecstatically!) linking up to TGIFF, being hosted by Blossom Hearts Quilts today!

  1. I used to think orange was a color I did not like but I'm really drawn to it. I like it with green and aqua, especially.

  12. I love it too, when my monthly package arrives from overseas! Even my children know what these soft white packages mean: one happy mummy! I love your quilt: such simple looking blocks, but so striking looking in the end! I love the colour combinations: I would never think of such. I'm more the tone-in-tone type. But this can get a little bit boring with the time....
