Orangeman's Day Quilt
This quilt began with a pricey workshop on salt-hand-dyed muslin. I used the salt and red and yellow dyes, hoping to get something like a Tequila Sunrise. Instead, I got "Highway Safety Cone Orange!" Too frugal to not use it, I made this quilt for my sister to honor our Northern Ireland Protestant ancestors that we celebrate every July 12th. To balance both the colors and the politics, I added generous amounts of green fabrics to the quilt.
