I finally finished my brown and orange wonky star. It's so fun to make a little quilt!! I think the idea originally started when I saw a beautiful orange and brown quilt on a blog last FALL, then I found a bundle of Katie Jump Rope fat quarters in the bin at Joann's (score!!). Ok, an orange and brown quilt in June is a little out of place but I think she shines in comparison to all the pretty florals and summery colors. I love the hint of robins egg blue I added to give it a little contrast.
I originally used the brown and scraps of orange to piece a back, but then decided I'd like just plain blue. I love the way the quilting shows up and it's my best quilting job yet. Of course, quilting a small quilt is a million times easier and way quicker. Quilting is still where I struggle so I think I needed to make a small one to get my confidence up.

|Jada also makes a wonderful spot to place a quilt during a photo shoot. I wonder what my neighbors think of us?!
