The Recipient and OC

Dear Bloggy Friends,
Thank you so much for your help in choosing which photo to post to the QuiltvillChat group and your comments on the photos. By popular concensus, photo #1 is the chosen one. I'll post to the group in the morning. I have a whole day open for quilty things tomorrow. Yeah!

The recipient to this quilt is my DD#1, Mandy. It is only right that she receives this quilt since she's the one who had suggested the color combos. Plus, I've been a bad Mom..... everyone in the family got a quilt made by Mom... except for Mandy. So this is just for her.

It's not that I haven't thought of making her a quilt... it's because I taught her how to sew and quilt six years ago. She made two quilts with help and has two quilt tops that are waiting for me to quilt them. Mandy has been patiently waiting for her quilts to be done for five years now. Poor girl... is my guilty conscious showing? *LOL * Boy, sure glad that she has her own quilt now and to get that guilt monkey off my back! Oh wait, I still have to do those other two... guilt monkey is back on. *LOL*

Now that I can crossed Carolina Crossroads quilt off my list, I am starting Orange Crush or should I said Grape Crush. I have some of those 4-patches done for step 1... but still have a lot more to go. Step 2 was posted last week. You know what I'll be doing tomorrow.
Photo is the yardages pulled for OC Grape Crush.

Your Carolina Crossroads is the prettiest one I have seen. I absolutely love the color combination.
