amd said...

It is pretty.

The only thing I don't understand is how you deal with so much white in your household.
It's nice when it's new, but not practical (for me, at least, as I try to make things last for years and years and years.)

SeasideQuilts said...

Wow! That is beautiful!

Melissa said...

I'm not much of a fan of orange.. but that quilt is beautiful. I agree with Anita.. how do you make white last?? It's not practical for me either =)

Kristin said...

Totally stunning and great colors!

Clair said...

I like the quilt. Last night I was at Mary Jo Larson's house with Emili and she had made a really neat quilt for her daughter's graduation. Wish that I could have taken a picture to show you...it is bright pinks, greens and yellows.
