March 25th The quilt is done.

 Hello,  it's been a while, i know.
I have been working on a quilt along due April 1st. I got off to a slow start but was able to make up for lost time and get the quilt finished.
I love the way it turned out ,although a bit busy, I am giving this one to a friend of mine who rarely leaves her house, I think this will brighten her day and she deserves it.
The top pic is the quilt all done, and the bottom pic well Crafty Cat  thought it might be for him lol
sorry Crafty Cat not this time.

Orbit Quilt Along
My newest sewing challenge is the Orbit Quilt Along. I am so excited because I can use my scraps on this one. This is a 6 week sew along hosted by Lindsey @ LRStitched. Once the quilt is completed it will be given to a good friend of mine. She is a "shut in" and with the bright colors I think it will be cheery for her. This week I will be busy cutting and sorting. It took me a while but I laid it all out and have it pinned. This is how I did my organizing. There are 9 rows in this quilt and I have them sorted by row and numbered. This should be pretty easy to put together, one could hope, right?
