So, here is one of the fun parts of my new book, Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, the six quilt patterns in the back of the book. I really love to design quilts so I just had to have quilt patterns included in the book.
I thought it would be fun to re-make the quilts in different colors/fabrics. I hope to re-make all six of them but I don't know how the next year will play out... So far I have 2 of them re-made.
This one is "Orange Slices" it's the quilt that is featured on the cover of the book, I love it, but I'm a little partial right now. :)
"Orange Slices is a simple appliqued quilt, made originally from solid fabrics in two colors -- white and of course, orange. It's fun made as orange slices, but it would also be darling in yellow (lemons), green (limes), or pink (grapefruit)! The quilting adds lots of interest but creating the appliques with prints would add even more texture."
Moda fabrics recently came out with a whole bunch of darling new solids. When I saw them I knew they'd be perfect for this quilt. So, Kathleen and I re-made "Orange Slices" with 17 of the new Moda Bella solids. I wish I could tell you the name of each of the colors but I didn't even keep track of them as I made the quilt. :)
