Orange Crush

Meet Lily. She is one of our 3 orange tabbies. She is inspecting my four patches for Bonnie Hunter's Orange Crush Mystery. As time goes on, I'm sure you will meet the other two as they are also very involved with any quilting that goes on here.

These are the fabrics I have chosen for the quilt. The picture doesn't really show the black accents in the red fabric. I'm hoping in time that my photography skills will improve. Anyway, I love all of Bonnie's quilts. Scrappy quilts are really my favorites. I had a great time making the Carolina Crossroads quilt(pictures to come later since I still need to add the borders). But I can't tell you how excited I was when she announced this new mystery. You see, one of our sons attends the University of Illinois. Their colors just happen to be orange and blue. In fact, one of the largest spirit organizations on campus(best known for their charity contributions) is called the Orange Crush. I think she is designing this one just for us but we will let you play along too. LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm having fun with the new blog. I hope you are enjoying it also.

Hi Donna, welcome to blogland. I love the fabrics you have chosen for the orange crush mystery. Your pic with the cat is gorgeous. We have an orange tabby too and she is very much the quilt inspector.
Looking forward to Clue 2

Hi Donna, It's me again. I commented on your table runner. I am a new blogger too, and I just got tagged, so I thought I'd share.
It is just 7 weird or random things about yourself, and you can see the rules on my blog. It wasn't as bad as I thought, it made me think. The worst thing is passing it on.
