Blogger's Quilt Festival: Throw Quilt

I was waiting for the redesign of flickr to settle down.
I've already got a head cold and it was giving me a visually induced migraine.
If anyone can recommend a site they love to upload pics to and link to their blog, I'd love to entertain options.

So, here's my second entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.  This time in the Throw Quilt category.

Orbit quilt, done!

It's about 60x60.
I straight lined quilted it.
I used fabrics pulled from my stash.  I wanted spring in a quilt!

It's my most recent finish.  The Orbit Quilt designed by Lindsey over at LRStitched.

I didn't get it done in time for her QAL, but I loved the pattern when she posted info for her QAL.  This quilt may be getting a new home, and I may be making another.  I really love this pattern.  I'm spatially slow, so cutting all the pieces was hard for me, but I thought her directions and diagrams were awesome.  It was really satisfying to piece.  (I had planned on doing the piecing at Stash Bash and finished the piecing the week prior in an attempt to calm down my stress level.)

Anyway, thanks for visiting.  Thanks, Amy, for another inspiring Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Perfectly spring like!
I always just load the pictures from my computer, that's the easiest way for me :)

Have you run out of blogger space? That's what I use, but I resize my pics down to 100k, so I can post for years without filling up to my limit (bwhahahaha)

I'm not a fan of the redesign either... One of those cases where fancier isn't better. Takes too long to load the frontpage.

Feel better. :-)

Not a clue about Flickr I'm afraid, it rarely works in this house anyway :(
Love the orbit though, the colours are fab, very spring and cherry-blossom like!

Really like your orbit quilt. The colours are great.
