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?


>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:
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.
(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!
