Oranges and Easter Basket Swap

Oranges, anyone?! Ok, not real oranges, but the orange-iest fabrics I have ever worked with! Oh my! Remember, I am making birthday quilts for my trio's 13th birthdays later this year? These oranges are for Elizabeth's quilt. She is ALL about the color orange. (Carol, I think you may need sunglasses when you quilt this one! HA!) Definitely not my color choice, but I know Elizabeth will like it, so that's what matters... :o)

I also wanted to show what I sent in an Easter Basket Swap that I participated in. It was sent to Pat at Pat's Patter. I made a Spring-y Easter Basket pincushion, some crocheted dishclothes, a fabric transfer block, some birdhouse buttons, beads, and a sticker sheet... It was nice to *think Spring* with this swap!

I am going to work on Elizabeth's quilt blocks a bit more today, and then hope to get another DJ block or two done tonite! :o) Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Whoa! You woke me up this morning with those oranges. You have a good selection of them to use.

The orange fabrics are beautiful. Kids certainly have their taste. I have a friend whose granddaughter does not like pink or purple. She is into gray, black, or blue. She is an adorable 7 year old. I have noticed even in baby things, the colors are not the pink, yellow, blue, and mint that we use to use. I like your selections for your Easter basket swap.

Elizabeth must be a very old soul... a child of the '60s. I used to love orange back then too. Wallpapered my mom's kitchen in big orange flowers - poor woman *LOL*
