Peachy Sherbet

Quilty bloggers can be the nicest people. After my last post, Michelle left me a comment saying she had a set of fabric to send to me if I wanted it. Now, those of you that know me, know well enough that I never pass up fabric offers! It arrived today, three days later, and was eye candy to open. It's 6 fat quarters of reds, oranges & yellows, plus two and a half yards of fuscia and orange. She had bought enough to make fense rail quilt for which she also sent the pattern.
But as soon as I saw the colors (I am totally in love with orange & pink together!!), I knew I what design I wanted to do. I have been eyeing this pattern for a while, but after seeing Jeanne's 4SQS5 mini, I knew that this was next on my list of to-do's.
After a few minutes of playing with EQ6, here's what I came up with. It is about 44" x 50" - a good size for a child. It's naturally going to be a Project Linus donation quilt, as my house can only hold so many gorgeous quilts. Furthermore, I always try to make quilts to give away if I am bequethed the goods with which to make them.

Thanks so much Michelle; it is really a nice treat.

OOOH! I like that pattern so much - that will be a great Linus quilt! Geez, now I think I need to consider getting myself some EQ software - look how fast your vision came to life!
