Orange and Yellow Quilts

 I love to visit blogs for inspiration, but for me it is also relaxing to read quilting blogs. I have made so many wonderful quilting friends. A few weeks ago I saw an Orange Square quilt on Madame Samm's blog and it was also on Jodi's blog. I absolutely fell in love with the quilt and had to make my own Orange Square quilt.

 This is how my Orange Square Quilt turned out. For the quilting I went with a meandering or stipple.

 Our trees finally started to loose their leaves and it is looking like fall. I think we can get so many great quilting ideas from nature. The yellow leaves inspired me to show a few of my orange and yellow quilts.

 This was a fast and quick little quilt to make. I took a few 2 1/2" batik strips and sewed them together.

 Another batik quilt with orange and yellow, I had to add a few purple strips just for the fun of it.

 I am always working on a String quilt from my leftovers.  It is so relaxing to me to sew these strips...I do not have to match seams or sew a perfect quarter inch seam.
 To go with my yellow post...a string quilt with a yellow border and back.


 This is my orange Go cutter table runner. I use a lot of 2 1/2" strips for my quilts and it would be nice to have a 2 1/2" Go die to make the cutting faster.  AccuQuilt is going to have a huge Black Friday Sale which starts on Wednesday. They are going to have the lowest prizes on some of their Go cutter products.  I hope the strip set will be one of them.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving week! I know I will take time off to work on my own quilts...can't wait!

Happy Quilting!

Nice warm tones for the autumn season. Like you little table runner too. Wow the below posts are very cool with the blue green quilt, like that quilting design...the B&W quilt is very bold and striking.

What wonderful quilts. My favorite color is ornage but was yellow when I was young and together they make a wonderful combination. Maybe I need to make another orange/yellow quilt.
