"Hop, Skip, & a Jump" or "The Orange Project"

I've started a new project: "Hop, Skip, & a Jump" from Denyse Schmidt's designs.
Lots of crooked strips in orange, my precious, precious, orange!
I'm loving it so far:

Each piece is a different size and are labeled so I don't get them mixed up - which is very easy to do.

Bubbles & Patches Lap Quilt

This is a "quilt kit" I bought from Connecting Threads last spring and just now pieced it together. I think it turned out to be a sharp looking lap quilt!
I haven't decided on a color for the back, but I'm sure it'll be flannel.

And...I know the perfect recipient for it!

Plainspoken quilt finished!

Finally Finished!
This is based on the "Plainspoken" pattern from the folks at Fun Quilts.
It's much more luxurious in person!
Again, I had this quilted by Melear Fabrics. The gals there do a fabulous job every time.

Here, you can check out the bold backing I chose for this:
I think my pal, Melissa, is going to love it!
