Black and Orange Quilt Measurements

by CountryThreads on September 27, 2017

I knew many of you would ask about this quilt – my question is this:  do you just collect all these patterns I post or do you actually make them?  If you make them, send a picture to my email.

Here are the measurements and a good picture of the quilt.


These are the only directions Connie used.  The measurement shown is cut size.

I watched the Meghyn Kelly Show this morning and her guests were Jane  Fonda and Robert Redford who are in the new film Our Souls At Night.  Remember this book?


I loved it as did many of you.  Now I can’t wait for the movie to get here!

This looks like trouble – any time my book follows me downstairs and tempts me during the day, I know it’s a good book.  


And this is a great book – another movie I can’t wait to see!

I love the quilt, that star pattern. I also love to knit (not a good one, buy it keeps me from snacking when I do TV), I do some embroidery, and several other crafts. It’s rare I finish anything however : (

love to see what everyone does and hope someday to get a few things done! Love your comments, vickie

I have started the star one that you sent the picture of the pieces to not long ago and I really like this one and think that I will have to make it too! I really enjoy seeing all the things you post – the quilts are so nice. Looks like you have a nice kitty to keep you company at your sewing machine. My kitty has been gone now for a couple of years and I so wish I still had one to keep me company on my fabrics. Thanks for sending the directions – that quilt is really gorgeous. Fun for fall.

I love this quilt! Thanks for the measurements. I will send you a pic when I make it. I work full time and have a part time job as well, but this has been put at the top of my bucket list. 😃

Kent Haruf was a great middle America writer. I think I have read all of his books. Glad to hear it will be a movie with such icons!!!! A Man Called Ove will star Tom Hanks, too.
Your quilt is so attractive! I am so tempted.
Love the calico kitty; she looks similar to mine!
Have a great day in this great autumn time.

Someone was reading my mind. Thought the quilt was really cute. It would make a cute baby quilt in pinks & blues. Thanks.

I appreciate you posting a whole quilt picture and the basics, I may not make it or I might look back next year and try to find the blog post.
I have to mention your lovely sewing helper she is so happily napping so (sew) no sewing for you perhaps a few chapters of reading
I have just finished a Louise Penny book on CD in my car, I enjoy her books unfortunately I have not done them in order, she has quite a few characters and they each are referred differently by first name last name title so keeping them straight was difficult but if you can get past that her books are very entertaining and educational for me

I love the colors in Connie’s quilt. I will try a smaller one hoping it will turn out as nice. Thank you for the pattern. You guys are amazing to me.
I had to look again to see the kitty by your sewing machine. So cute.
Our neighbor just got a brown lab puppy. We are loving all the puppy kisses and laugh when he stumbles over his feet.
Take care Mary

I like hearing of good inspiring books. I see this is on Netflix so might need to think of subscribing. Don’t know much about it as we have cable so I can watch hallmark channel. Thank you for posting instructions to this new quilt. I have like 5 projects in the works right now and fabric in my stash probably for 100 more so love keeping ideas on hand for what to use it for. And I continue to do charity quilts weekly with a senior citizen group so always in the market for easy cutting projects you generously share with your readers.

Love the quilt. Will look for the books. Haven’t had a good read for a few weeks. Don’t think I’ve read these. Thanks

I love that you give us the names of books you are reading and today complete with photos. You must be like me and like to hold a real book and not an electronic gizmo. I have tried them (2) but just can’t get on to them.
Thanks for the directions for Connie’s quilt. It is so cute.

I’d sew if I had a working sewing machine. Still haven’t found accessible housing.

Just finished A Thread Unbroken…was a quick read and now downloading the same book you are reading.

Ann – let me know how you like it!

First I love Kent Karuf’s books. They are really good. I think he lives in Colorado.
Second, yes, I make some of the quilts you picture. Love the scrappy’s look. Haven’t had any quilting time since Sept 1…..The only difference between you and me is that you FINISH the quilt! I get the top done and then it sets. Hope to get more finished one of these days. I make quilts for Project Warmth in our quilt guild and really enjoy it. We give about 300 away every year. This year I’ve been working on quilts for myself. My log cabin miniature won People’s Choice at our quilt show.
Sure like the looks of your pumpkin crop. God just pruned the vines and they really bushed into beautiful plants. What fun.

I save some of the patterns you send in my to do book. As soon as I am able, I will get back to sewing. I enjoy all the pictures of everything you send.

Wish you had a kit for this black and orange quilt. I remember buying your wonderful kits in Columbus at Country Living Fair. I am using my magnifying glass to see background colors. Am I right that the background is soft gray? Maybe some is white too can’ tell.

Hi Mary, I am cutting out the star blocks for the Purple and White Star Quilt and I don’t know how many star blocks to make as I did’t make a picture of the quilt itself. Can you send me that information and/or the picture? I am sorry that I did’t think to copy the picture at the same time. It is working well to use stash that I have and I enjoy the pattern. Since I didn’t copy and print the picture I don’t remember if it had lattice but I don’t think so. I really like your sending these patterns and I am using them.
Thanks so much,
Kathy

I just finished reading “Beneath a Scarlet Sky.” It was both wonderful and sad. Horrendous and miraculous. I hear a movie is being made from it. I didn’t know until the end, it was a true story.
