Last year when I hosted the Tangerine Tango Quilt Challenge my quilt idea never came to fruition. I was super excited about orange too! This year my girls kept me on track and MADE me work. I'm so glad they did because I love this guy!
The design is from Quilting Modern. It's 27" x 27". Kind of a large mini, but I happen to have the perfect wall space for it. The quilting took a while, but I love how it turned out!
I backed it with some Amy Butler that I had on hand. Not really a fan of this collection, but this print seemed to pick up the colors well and I figured that I'd never look at the back. (Sorry Amy!)
I also finally tried out a binding method that I've been thinking about. I like that the stitching is on the binding only on the front & back (unlike this method). Another thing that bugs me is when you can lift up the little bit of binding outside the stitching and see the first round of stitching used to attach the binding. Not a great explanation, but when I put together a tutorial you'll see. ;)
