Orange Slice~

I am well aware that it is NOT August/September/October.
But man, do I have Orange and Red on the brain.

So I'm throwing caution to the wind
and talking about this quilt anyway!

I'm a lazy decorator.
I'm not too into seasonal decor.
So I figure with these bright oranges and red,
I can leave this up for the spring/summer
and cruise right into fall
without having to change a thing.

I told you I'm lazy.
The pattern is a single Irish Chain.
I love the simplicity of it.
I love the colors.

In fact, I want to make it in all
of my favorite color combos:
Pink/Orange, Blue/Green,
Red/Aqua, Pink/Red.
Not to mention scrappy would do the trick as well.

Pattern can be found in my store.

Also, for a limited time,
I'm offering a little "Orange Slice Kit".

UPDATE: Kits Sold Out! You ran me right out of my stash. But for those of you who scored one....oh, they are good!! Lots of variety!

For $12 it comes with all the orange strips
that you need to make the top,

PLUS the Orange Slice Pattern and
FREE Shipping. (US only)

Just add a white/neutral and you're almost done!
It's sewn with strip sets so it really goes quite fast.

By the time you finish,
you'll be just in time for the
right season.


  1. So cute! Looks fresh and clean. :)

  2. Oooh that looks a bit scrummy, I have ordered my kit!

  3. Orange is a seasonless color. I've thought that for a long time. So, since we've sorted that all out, can you throw my name in to win!!!


  4. I love it! The colors and the simplicity of this pattern make it timeless. Lynne

  5. Ahhh!! I'm up at the crack of dawn but there are no kits left!! Will you make one more?

  6. ok, I second Bonney...crack of dawn more kits left? will you make anymore? oh, i do want one...

  7. I'm putting 3 more in the store and then I'll need to see what I have left.

    Be sure to check with me if they're gone and you're interested in one.


  8. Love it! I like orange, it's such a happy color!

  9. I love this! You're really tempting me!

  10. I am a sucker for Orange and I just bought it YAYAYYYYY

  11. I tried to get one and they are all sold out. Will you be getting more?

  12. LoVe the colors in this quilt! I'm feelin' it for orange right now too. Maybe it's time I sewed something for my boys - something that rarely happens.

    BTW, I think it's awesome that you did a surprise makeover for your daughter on her 8th as well. You are such a GENIUS! :)

  13. aaaaaaacakkkkk! they are gone, any more miss des? I would love one!

  14. I missed out too. Are there going to be more kits available?? Please !!!

  15. Lazy decorators unite! I think red and orange are perfectly acceptable for every season, especially when made into an awesome quilt like that. Someday I'm going to be half as awesome as you are at quilting... some day.

  16. I really love that orange and that fabric. Sweet.

  17. I went to buy the Orange kit and it's already gone? Polly

  18. Waaaaaaaaaah!! Guess I missed out. This is what I get for not checking my reader earlier...booo hoo. I'd love one if you make up some more! The oranges/reds are so cheery and I definitely need cheering up today.

  19. I agree with the other comments, I hope you post more kits... :o) One of my daughters loves orange, and I am hoping to get her a kit as a gift. She has just started sewing in the last year or so... :o)

  20. I love this quilt, it's so pretty!! Love the orange, love the design. Great job!!

  21. Gorgeous Des! No wonder you sold out!

  22. I just received my kit in the mail today! Thank you so much for quick shipping! I can't wait to get started.
