This quilt started out because the blue and the green Katie Jump Rope liked each other so much. But then I started an orange quilt, and had these wonderful orange scraps. (By the way, the orange quilt still isn't finished. Can I get an "Amen"!) I had ordered some Sandi Henderson Meadowsweet because... And then on day, it all came together in my mind.
When I looked at this fabric together while quilting my mind kept wandering back to Grandmas and Grandpas. I grew up with all of them with me until I was in sixth grade. I have great memories. When may maternal grandparents went to Florida, they brought me back Orange Blossom Perfume. I can still smell it! When my paternal grandparents moved to Florida, I got a small bottle every time I visited them.
So this quilt is "Orange Blossom Perfume" in loving memory of the sweet times I had with all my grandparents.
Quilted with a feather stitch, I love how the soft orange thread looks on the blue KJR!
Since the original pictures were a bit washed out from the bright light and the snow, I took a couple to day.
It has been one of the very few non-rainy days since the snow melted!
I just can't tell you how soft KJR is.
Here is its summer resting place. It is ready for a chilly moment, or maybe just there if I need to remember Grandma's hugs.
