I finally found a border fabric for my orange and blue quit. This quilt is a downsized version of Bonnie Hunter’s Fourth of July quilt.
I have been looking for either a blue fabric with an orange print or vice versa. I finally found an orange print with blue stars that are close in colour to the blue of the quilt. Wanting this quilt done I grabbed a metre of it as soon as I saw it.
I think it works prettty well
This is the first quilt I’ve done in this colourway. I can’t say that I love it as I don’t. I much prefer the one I made in blues and greens.
However, the top is done and I’ll quilt it shortly. It’s going to be a donation quilt and I’m sure someone will love it!

BOISE STATE! I love it 🙂 It is perfection.
Oooh, I love both color combos. The orange and blue would be out of my comfort zone too but I think it works. The border fabric is a perfect complement. And I love Bonnie Hunter’s designs. I’ll have to put this one on my to-do bucket list. Wonderful quilts!
Congrats on the completion of another great quilt top! Your bold color choice make for vibrant quilts.
The orange and blue version is very pretty! Although I’ll admit to being more of blue and green girl myself. The border is perfect!
The orange and blue border fabric is terrific! Always fun to find the perfect fabric to pull it all together.
From a Colorado girl – Its all Broncos colors!! haha!! It will definitely be loved and cherished!!
Broncos colors — hah! Yes, someone will definitely love that quilt more than you do. When one of my sons was little, he told me that he wished EVERYTHING IN THE WHOLE WORLD was orange! 🙂
I’m a big fan of orange, so I’m loving that orange and blue beauty! That border fabric is perfect!
Both quilts are gorgeous though! It’s hard working with a colorway that isn’t a favorite, but you pulled it together. The border fabric works very well with the quilt!
Your quilt looks terrific. The border fabric works really well. I like orange and blue quilt but I love the blue and green one. Hum, I have that pattern on my computer… maybe I should take a look at it again.
Both color combinations are so pretty! The blue and orange totally works for me as those are the colors of my home town’s university! Go Miners!
I remember in the 1970’s our family kitchen was orange and blue! I think some cupboard doors were orange others blue. It’s a colour combination I always enjoy. When I’m making a scrappy quilt I always smile when I manage to find orange and blue fabric pieces to stitch together. 🙂
Sorry you don’t like this version but I think it’s wonderful! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
