the ( swiss army ) quilt

as most of you know... my husband murdered my dream of the ( life aquatic ) quilt because of his dislike of orange... so may i introduce the ( Swiss Army ) quilt... I based it off of a watch i bought for him in our early years of dating ;) It's growing on me! xo, Heather

  23. I came here from Mrs. Schmenkman... These colors look pretty fabulous to me, but I'd love to see what the orange combo was going to look like. I have been wanting to make a plus/cross quilt for a long, long time. I must squeeze in some time one of these days!
