Aqua and Orange {finish}

This one's actually been finished for awhile, but our dismal weather was making is hard to get any good pictures. 

Aqua and Orange Sampler Quilt

If you remember right, the blocks for this quilt were made by the ladies in the Sew Pieceful Swap last spring/summer.  Aqua and orange was my first color scheme with this group, but I'm already on my 3rd color!

I've been saving the flannel backing piece since last year when I got it on sale.  Can you believe I've never actually used flannel on any of my previous quilts?  It's a perfect aqua gingham if I do say so myself.  I'm pretty sure you all know this already but I could buy gingham in every color of the rainbow and still not tire of it.  And gingham flannel? That's pretty much perfect!

Aqua and Orange Sampler Quilting Texture

 I think my quilter did a fantastic job giving the quilt great texture without taking away too much from each block.

As for those orange cornerstones...I love the little pop of color they add to the sashing.

Happy Monday, All!

Beautiful work on the quilt! The color scheme is really fresh and happy. I've never sewn anything with flannel. I love looking at the flannel fabric at the shop. I will have to give it a try.

I really like the orange and aqua with all the different designs. You just keep doing gorgeous quilts. I'm making another afghan with the leftover yarns of grays, white and teal. Since K took the other one, do you want this one? M

I love the colors of this quilt so much! I haven't really quilted with flannel until last month for the first time. I've always been hesitant not knowing how the flannel will wash up. I guess it depends on the quality though.
