Five Easy Pieces - Part the Third

Way back in the spring of 2011, I participated in the Spring Citrus Surprise Swap.  It was kind of an anything goes swap except for using citrus colors, so I received blocks of all kinds.

I created these blocks for my partners, and in return I got 10 blocks back.

I was so excited by this color palette that I used several rounds of the 3x6 bee to continue to collect blocks in these colors -

sometimes adding pink,

sometimes aqua, or both.  I ended up with more than 50 blocks. 

From all those blocks, last summer I made 3 totally different quilts.  I can honestly say that I liked them all.

These two went to Project Linus, and I kept the third one because Abby liked it best.

So now I have the 4th quilt top all put together.  I' ll get this one quilted soon and I think I will donate it to Project Linus as well.  It will be a delightfully colorful quilt for some little person, don't you think?


  1. this is beautiful, i love these cheery colours, i wish your pictures were larger so i could have a better look, or a close up of some squares?

  2. Angelina, I don't have a close up of the blocks yet, but I'll be sure to do that when I take the "after" photos once it's quilted. Thanks for your interest.


I love comments! Please - make my day!
