I started collecting material for this quilt about a year ago and was able to collect most of it by doing swaps here on Craftster, although, in the end, I had to buy a couple of pieces.  I can't remember exactly where it all came from but I know for sure that some is from South Africa, the UK, Sweden, the US and Canada.  The pattern came from a magazine called Fun Quilts and it's the Uneven Nine Patch.

It is for my 18 year old son, whose favorite color is, you guessed it, ORANGE!

I present my All About Orange quilt:

A little closer up so you can see detail:


and even closer for more detail:


and the obligatory back picture showing all the quilting I did:


September 3 - this is a picture of the quilt in my son's room.

That is just stunning!!  I love the block you chose to do for this!  I love it - I call it organized chaos..

Your son is a lucky man!

Homer, that's gorgeous.  I too love orange, but it gets ignored by most people.  Your son is very lucky.

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

That's just beautiful, I love the pattern which seems untidy and organized at the same time!  And an excellent choice of orange fabrics!

So nice to see the final product!  Good job.

This definitely rocks!  I hope I can get to your level of quilting after some practice this summer!  I love the colors, it makes me think of summer  Smiley

That's fantastic.  I've seen squares like that but never a finished quilt.  It's too cool!
