Sunny Clementine

I know a little crazy 3 posts in one day.  I was behind on getting pictures done.  It is dark too early and I was just not getting those things done on the weekend.  Everyone was home and since we were outside shoveling the 8.5 inches of snow twice.  I had help from the hubby and I thought they looked pretty with the new snow.  

This quilt was part of the MMQG challenge.  It was at the LGS for the voting portion and no I didn't win but it was fun to enter and figure out what to do.  I am gifting this quilt along with a pillow for a Christmas - birthday gift for my best friend.  We have been friends for over 30 years and she has never gotten a quilt from me.  Her boys have and I have made other gifts but not a quilt so it's time.  Her favorite color is orange.

I quilted it on the diagonal and just followed the grid.  This color looks so much brighter than it really is.  This should look great in her 3 season room with very earthy colors.  I blogged about here and here. Here's the pillow I made as well, it was the tutorial from In Color Order.

I had also made a pillow for myself with the Boo Crew. I had wanted to try a Granny Square so I did!  It turned out very cute.

I don't think you will see another finish post today! Enjoy your Sunday and hope you are finding some time to sew!


  1. Great quilt and pillows! Wow, you got a lot of snow. We only ended up with about four or five inches. So much for the prediction that we were in the belt of larger accumulations. You won!

  2. Love your sweet quilt and cushions! Congrats on such lovely finishes! God's Blessings and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
