Oranges, Lemons and Limes Quilt

The weekend brought with it some wild weather with wind and much needed rain but also a hint of the change in seasons. Spring is approaching and it was reflected in the fabric choice for this next project.


The initial plan for these fabrics had to be shelved due to unforeseen circumstances (read: put in the too hard basket!) , and as I had already cut all the fabrics a rescue plan had to be instigated to save the fabrics from the overflowing scrap bin.


This quilt top now needs a backing which I will work on today. I am quietly hoping to also baste this today, but I know Domestic Diva is required to attend to the chores to restore order.

  13. Wow what a lovely summery quilt! Looks a bit triangular like the one I'm working on? Mine is in wintery colours, which is a bit odd come to think of it as we are now in Spring! Would love to use those colours next.
