Orange & White Craziness

I finally started on my Orange & White quilt this week. I have been collecting O&W fabric for a while but wasn't sure just how I wanted to work it into a quilt. Then I saw this wonderful tutorial on Oh, Fransson's blog for a Crazy 9 Patch Lattice Quilt and I knew it was perfect! Since I wanted a quilt bigger than the one in the tutorial I just added a couple of more rows to it. I have 45 of the 72 blocks made.

I will also use a Kona tan as my solid blocks. 

I just don't like using a lot of white in my quilts. Does anybody else feel that way?

Hopefully I will get the rest of the O&W blocks done this weekend.
Then next week I will start sashing the Paintbox Owl quilt. 
I love it when I have projects to work on!

Everybody have a great weekend!


  1. Oh! I LOVE orange and white. I have started collecting that color combination myself and am busy planning a quilt with them. Love your blocks and fabrics.

  2. So pretty, Kim! I love orange... I used some this week. I can't wait to see your quilt evolve, it's already striking!
