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!
