My 10 year old great nephew, wants a quilt, he picked out his colors and his pattern. Blues,reds, cream or off white and orange..yikees!
he loves the Chevron i am working on now..
so that's what it will be. and scrappy.

i can either do it with HST's or strips.So i am thinking i need 5 or 6" inch squares of strips..

i don't have much in the way of oranges..
i need/want a mix, like in the picture.

i can trade for whatever your looking for,
I spy, 30's or the regular stuff..lol

I will pay for shipping of course!

I'll do some digging to see what I've got. Won't be much, cause a while back I was in the same boat. Pretty sure I have a couple, probably 5". Ok to send a couple of several different?

I'm pretty sure I have some bright oranges downstairs....I'll check in the morning and put what I find in the mail for you. I don't need anything in return. Love the quilt you will be making Smile I need an address though. If you PM it to me I'll have it in the morning. I think I may have your address but I can't find my book - it's buried Smile

I have a few oranges that I can send you, if you'll PM me your address Smile.

I'm putting everything into my newly redesigned sewing room and I found some fabrics that I was going to mail to someone. Ugh, I had been wondering what happened to those!

May, the HST's are really not going to show much of any pattern, so it is not a problem. even florals will not show much!

That looks great. Just now reading this. As soon as I get the candy fabric I am using the str1p method to make a quilt for my granddaughter due the end of May. Right now they call her "Jelly bean".

How are you going to quilt it??

I am sure Jelly bean is a cute name, right up until the baby, turns around 13 or so! Congrats on the new grandchild to come!
I let the quilter decide the thread color and quilt pattern..she is so awesome at it! I dropped it off at "Quality Quilting" in Ann Arbor,Mi on friday. Usually a quick turn around. I put blue fabric as the backing..i hope i don't regret it! But i could not see muslin pieced. (Joanns was out of the premium 90 wide) Plus it is for a young boy..i think he is 10. Best to use a darker color, i think.
I had so much orange scraps to use up, i got 3 rows out of it! the other colors i ended up with 2 rows each. I am really pleased with the way it turned out..His colors, his pattern picked out! cool!

The blue fabric for the backing will be great for a boy. Much better than a beige muslin. He will be so tickled with it.

As for Jelly Bean, she will be know by her "given" name when she makes her entrance, the parents are mum as to her real name.
