Not that I don't love orange or him, I love both. But he's an incredibly high energy kid (can we say adHd) and we just don't need to add a high energy color with a high energy kid, even if you are snuggling under it. I thought of colors to temper the orange and I wasn't feeling any of them. So I went with charcoal and gray.
I was hoping not to give off too much of a Halloween vibe, but my husband says I failed. Miserably. Oh well. Aside from Halloween, it also reminds me of our preferred state college (at least over the other major state college in our area), so there's a bonus.
I've been telling my son (who is once again begging for an orange quilt after seeing this for the past week on my design wall) that this one is destined for charity and he can't have it....
Anyway, now I just need to quit lying to my kid, finish piecing this, quilt, bind, and wrap!
Oh yeah, I saw this quilt in a catalogue somewhere, sometime recently. Can't remember where. And I just kinda figured it out. Pretty sure that's allowed, right?? I mean, a 16 patch and quarter square triangles, how hard is that? Right? We're all good?
