Orange Crush Revisited

I do actually finish things.
This is a remake of the 'Orange Crush' quilt I sold. I've missed it. I wanted one of my very own. It so fits with my orange sectional.

Said goodbye to my youngest yesterday. He's back in St. Paul ready for the fall semester.

Excuse me while I brag. He's a fabulous musician, composer, arranger, music producer...Quincy Jones in the making.
He's a DJ too...he's got a BIG gig in a Minneapolis club tonight.
You're going to rock the house, J.
(Pictures by Jon's friend Baylee Bishop , a soon to be famous photographer!)
Miss you already!

Love the quilt! I've often wanted to remake a quilt I sold just so I could have it!

That's pretty awesome that your son's so talented! He's going to be awesome at his big gig :)

I love that quilt and saved in my "quilts to make" folder. Hopefully someday soon I'll be posting one inspired by your beauty :)

Nice finish too.

Great pictures of your son and I just thought how perfect your modern quilts are in your modern home. Your Orange Crush quilt is beautiful! Looks great. Good job!

Love Orange Crush - I can see why you missed it. Congrats on the next Qunicy Jones! My 12 year old nephew is the next Jimmy Hendrix.Stevie Ray Vaughan. Last weekend he played with the Counting Crows in Columbus. I am a proud Aunt just like you are a proud Momma.

What a great looking kid! And what a great looking quilt! I am trying to thnk "modern" but it is slow in coming. I love the look and wish I would have found it years ago!

Sure understand what you are going through with son being away at school. Our daughter is 3,000 miles away from us...so hard to let go.

Cool quilt. I see a gray quilt in my future, and what a cool kid! Makes a mom's heart proud, huh?

You're so cute, Jacquie. Orange crush is fantastic, and I love J's photos, especially the first one.

I so-o-o-o-o-o love Orange Crush!! That is a gorgeous quilt. I've never been a big fan of orange in the past, but I must admit I'm getting the itch to use it in a quilt!!

I love Orange Crush! Orange and grey is a colour combination that has grown unto me. Might be a project in orange and grey some day.

Good luck to Jon. I'm sure he will do great!

Orange Crush looks right at home!
Let me know the next time Jon has a gig - my kids just moved back to Twin Cities and may want a new place to visit.

I just love it when parents brag about their adult children!! Your son looks the part. He's going to continue to do wonderful things. Great pics of him. Thanks for sharing!

I love your Orange Crush. Is it a pattern?

Just wanted to compliment you on your great looking young man and your beautiful quilt. I have daughter who lives SC and she is a Clemson Tigers fan. Which of course makes her a huge orange fan too lol! Thanks for sharing;0) Sarah
