I really love this little quilt. It's big for a baby quilt at 50" square, but it's perfect.
That crazy orange, which I got at Hancock Fabric, was really, really cheap. I don't know how cheap, but I assure you I would not have bought it for anything close to regular price. It is definitely not in my comfort colors. However, ...
When I decided to join in the QAL, I also decided to do one thing that I would normally not do. Just one thing. The crazy orange became that one thing. Believe me, it was enough. I almost chickened out.
I'm so very glad that I didn't.
I was supposed to take the quilt outside for a photo shoot, but dang, it's hot! I didn't make it. I died right outside the door. Seriously. Died. Didn't even make a second step. The thing that saved me is that I was holding on to the doorknob. I managed, in my weakened state, to drag my body to the slit of cool air escaping through the crack. You can't know how delicious a sliver of chilled oxygen is until you've died in Louisiana in July.
I was forced to wait until I could wrangle someone into helping. The photo shoot was delayed for the wedding of Icy and Trin Penguin. They were married right in our living room on the coffee table. Marley was the maid of honor and wore her favorite night gown (gown being the operative word). After the lovely couple was pronounced husband and wife, they kissed and danced. Icy tossed his hat and Trin threw her scarf. Then they posed for pictures.

Do you like linky parties? Did you know that I have a tab with a list of linky parties that happen almost every week? Look at the tab across the top and click on the one that says, " UPDATED: 60+ Linky Parties." The link will take you to two lists: the first is in alpha order and the second is in chronological (daily) order.
