RAINDANCE, LONG AGO (Orange Edition)

Still using up my orange scraps; made four of these" babies"
using my Southwestern theme: (When I started  Sherri-Lyn's (daintytime.net)
Mod Mood tutorial, I had learned how to free-cut wedges and sew them together.  (Note to self--take out that UFQ and get on with it!!) 

Just randomly cut, no templates.

AND:  here I am starting to put all these various pieces together into a small wallhanging:

I plan to applique those head/foot dresses and the background (hard to see here) will be a light peach color....

Think I want warmer weather to come?????(LOL!)
Ai-yai-yai!  Muy, muy caliente!! Hot, Hot, Hot!!

I kind of enjoy figuring out this quilt top (lotsa measuring and trimming!).

I have "Hello Dolly" in the dryer--all snippety-doo-dahed!  Fingers crossed.  Hope it comes out okay...

Longing for Spring (tra-la)  

Hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse


  1. Love this! Love how it's all our own design as you go along. I've got to try doing that. It's definitely out of my comfort zone but that's a good thing! Can't wait to see it all done!

  2. Hello Julie,
    what a wonderful Raindance, it looks great and I think it will be a beautiful wall hanging. The orange fabrics are very nice, I love them all. I'm very interesting to see it all done.
