Citrus colored quilt



My youngest daughter, Licious, has three favorite colors.  Lime green, orange and yellow.



At Christmas, the main things she hoped Santa would bring her were lime green, orange and yellow in color. Lime green turtlenecks.  Orange slippers.  Yellow robe.  It went on and on.  And let me tell you, Santa had a hard time convincing his elves to make much of anything in those colors or any combination thereof.



So I during our week off due to snow she picked out fabrics from my stash and I made her a quilt.

With all her favorite colors.

Eat that Santa.

P.S.  See over on that sidebar on the right?  See the newest button about The Sewing Summit?  Did you see at the bottom there?  I'm teaching. (gulp!)  And, putting together some fun after Summit hours activities and get togethers for Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Alongers  (think fun swaps, happy hours and dinners.)  Please say you'll go?

Great color choices. And way to cover for Santa.

OMG...I just can't believe how you and I are sort of on the same wavelength...is that a Turning Twenty?:) I just got a few more Kaffe's today to round out what I already had to make my little 16 yr old cousin in Italy a quilt "like sunset over the Med"!!:) And that is the exact pattern I was thinking of using!

Great colors...yep...gotta love sherbet!!

I WANT to go to UTAH!!! I seriously want to go...seriously.....seriously....I'm seriously gonna try!!;)

What a sweet quilt. Those colors look so good together! I like your new blog header.

Dena said...

You are just the best Momma! Licious I am sure knows that. How did you quilt it? I WANT to go to UTAH too. Can't wait for all the details. You da best. Oh yeah I already said that:)

jabeybaby said...

Those are some of my favorite colors too! She did a great job selecting fabrics, it looks great!

Quiltnbee said...

LOVE it! This quilt is so happy! She has wonderful taste! She would have been right at home in the 60s and 70s =-) Most of the clothes I sewed as a teenager were in these colors (and, actually, the prints were similar,too.)

Jessica Christensen said...

You're speedy, woman. I have a citrus maverick stars quilt that I am now inspired to work on again.

Your daughters quilt is fabulous! Hope to see you at the Summit.

Corinnea said...

That's a happy quilt! I love it.

Kim said...

Darn I can't come but I love your new header.....and the new quilt.....its just delicious!

Lovely time spent with the girls making a quilt....did they help?

Happy sewing

Colleen said...

I love the quilt! I can't even imagine having that much fabric in my stash. Wish I could attend the Summit but live on the east coast --poo!

brown robin said...

Yeah for you about the sewing summit! I really do wish I could go, but my guess is that it's not in the cards right now. I so love, love, love your quilt. That sweetie pie of yours has excellent taste in colors. Is that the "turning twenty" pattern? I'd love to know. I am painfully aware that improv is popular, but I love the mindlessness of a pattern. Does that make sense? More snow here today. Hmmmm.

LOVE the citrus quilt! i just checked oiut the sewing summit link ~ you are SOOOOO COOL to be teaching there!

April (Polkadot Sparrow) said...

I love citrus, too! So does my sister, so I made her a citrus quilt. That I hope to start quilting in February. I figure that nothing chases away the winter blues like citrus, huh? :)

Shelley said...

Love this quilt! The pattern is so simple, but the fabric makes it pop with energy.

Looks like your daughter made good choices with these fabrics. It really looks great...so cheerful.

Karen Sue said...

Ginger said...

I love it! Perfect to help chase away the winter doldrums!

allie b dallie said...

love this pattern. Do you have suggestions on how I could go about doing it? I'm new to quilting and am planning on making a quilt for my daughter's toddler bed.
Thank you so much!
