Designed by: Me, Cindy Sharp
Started: approximately April 20, 2012
Finished: approximately March 5, 2012
Fabrics used: basically anything crazy orange, including but not limited to selections from Half Moon Modern, Pezzy Prints, Collegiate prints; and Bella solids white, and ash grey; and bouquet print from Flea Market Fancy.
Quilter by: computer guided long arm in Kim Diamond's Pinwheel Posies design by me
My inspiration was this beautiful girl and her successful completion of a four year degree in Ag Communications from Oklahoma State University, and the occasion of her moving into her very first, very own home.

Revelation #1: I ask the wrong questions. When I decided to make Amanda a quilt I asked her if she still liked orange and what color would she pair with it. What I should have asked is "If I made you a quilt, what color would it be?". Although she loves orange, she has decided to decorate her new home in a calmer pallet of aqua, grey, and white. Oops.

Revelation #4: The right border makes all the difference. ...
|Flea Market Fancy making a border audition...perfect I'd say.|
Revelation #5: Well, I don't have the right words to say this, so I will just blurt it out....I can make something beautiful.
