Finish - Orange Monochromatic

Patiently waiting for the rain to stop for pictures, I found a little sun. As soon as the picture was taken on the swing, the rain started coming again ..... so the picture below is shadowed.

The finished quilt is 83 x 92, taking 22 bobbins of thread for the custom quilting. The binding is an orange and white stripe for the final touch.

Again, I must give special thanks to Judy Laquidara over at Patchwork Times for her Monochromatic Challenge. I have always liked orange so I had a huge collection of various shades ..... after this quilt, I love orange. I believe it will rest very nicely on the double bed in my son's old room.

Beautiful! With the light shining through from behind, it almost has a stained-glass window look to it. I'm not a big fan of orange, well, I didn't USED to be but now I can see doing one with lots of orange variety. I like it so much.

Orange isn't my favorite and I have very little in my stash. I would never make a Big quilt like yours in that color. It's is amazing now that you show all the quilting and the way the sun shows through is cool. I'm still practicing my quilt staging...
