the {Tangerine} princess & the pea - Finished!

Yay!! Being the naughty girl that i am... i just finished piecing the top of my month's ( October mind you ) of the { Sew New To Me } virtual quilting bee... sad... i know... cause look at what a fabulous quilt these talented members helped me create!!! You can check out the whole month's progress here. Since this baby is super special to me and it's made with lots of Heather ross' Far Far and Away double gauze... it will be given the spa treatment with a long arm... not my sewing machine ;) I can't wait until I can snuggle under her!!
I had to finish a few blocks before putting her together yesterday... i want to make sure my 6'2 husband can cuddle with me under it!
Then... the pattern... i asked for wonky improv blocks in random sizes. I lOVEd Ashley's ( film in the fridge ) quilt... but needed one a tad more boyish for my house ;) after that... it was easy peasy... just stripped them and sewed them up! A couple fav blocks... and shots... of how wonky it is :) ... and then wa'lah... a perfect mix of girlie and urban!!! just my style... i'm in luuuuvv!! ( 54 X 68 ) Now on to my ( me + you ) quilt ( again ) with my dear friend Joan! and yes.. i know it the same as my Life Aquatic quilt... but since my hubby nixed the tangerine... i'm starting over! Anyone interested in my tangerine blocks??? Just let me know! :) XO, Heather

  6. LOL -- I love how you refer to your very cool and very special quilt in the feminine. I almost always name my quilts, but the poor things are always "it" to me. I'll have to rethink that!

    I'm looking forward to cutting up those fabrics for our me + you project! Look for a post with pics on Friday. Yikes! That will probably come fast!

  10. So pretty, I have been rethinking my aversion to orange/tangerine of late, and this quilt only helps me along that path. Of to fins some oranges that speak to me. I think my husband would even like that quilt, and I want to make one for us to snuggle on the couch with too.

  19. Loving your bee quilt - it's beautiful (bee-utiful?)!

    May I have the tangerine blocks?! I would really love to have them! And hey, I thought I told you to give him a swift kick in the pants for not agreeing that they were awesome? Also, if you really don't want to give away your tangerine blocks, you could always use them to do a pieced back for your bee quilt!

  26. Love the quilt. I enjoy making quilts with leftover blocks. Please consider me (Orange for a UF Gator)for your leftover blocks.
    I've been in lurkdom for your group's virtual quilting bee. The blogs are such fun to read and I'm learning a lot.

  28. I know you finished this quilt a year ago, but I just found it while in search of inspiration for the Far Far Away quilt I'm working on for my daughter's bed. It's given me the courage to give my blocks the wonky treatment. Thanks :-)
