Winter Quilt Swap finished.

Here it is, my submission for the Winter edition of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap, currently winging its way to ????? in ???????

I chose the oranges as my motif because I grew up in a part of California well known for its delicious citrus--the Central San Joaquin Valley. The pattern is straight out of EQ6.

I have three citrus trees in pots on my deck here in Santa Rosa, a lemon, a Meyer lemon and a navel orange. My Meyer lemon needs to harvested big time since it has more fruit than branches right now.

I enjoyed doing this one and it is made entirely from stash (I know, big whoopee) including the use of batting scraps pieced together.

beautiful work! I'm sure the new recipient will love it! I need to do the binding on mine and send it out!

Karrin Hurd said...

Great quilt Jan, what a lucky recipient!

Nancy said...

A lovely quilt. Truly special.

Someday when you have time, please explain what a Meyer lemon is. I've seen recipes in Silver Palate that call for them and I have no idea how they differ from a standard, non-Meyer lemon.

Lovely work and what nice smells you must get with the fragrant lemon tress right there!

A lemon tree is just what I need, here in dull, grey, wet Europe! Your 4SSQ is beautiful. And the recipient will be very lucky. Take care.

What a lucky person that will be to get this quilt.
Ilove it!
just perfect!
hope your going to make yourself one too.
ok, have to ask what was in the fabric bags for Christmas, I didn't see it posted anywhere! I used brown grocery sacks and kraft paper with ribbons this year but next year it will be fabric, that was too much work
