Both Orange Crush quilts done! (scrappy and pink/brown)

Here is my biggest kitty, Baby. My swap blocks came in the mail today and she claimed the box. It will not last long as she is way too big for the box and will bust it out. Until then she is in cardboard heaven. I wonder what goes through her little head!
Scrappy Orange Crush came out beautiful. Hubby really likes this one. The border does not ripple as it looks in the picture....my kitchen is just not wide enough. The quilt measures 83"x96".
My pink/brown Orange Crush has a story to tell.
First it ended up being square instead of a rectangle. I had blocks left over but thought nothing of it until I had it all sewn together and did a measurement. ??????? All 4 sides were 73 1/2". What happened? Well I must have not made my row long enough when I was doing the layout. It was too big for my design wall but I was propping blocks up on the table under the design wall. Oh well...I really like it square.
All the pieced border pieces fit fine and it is now a grand 79" square.

Both of these will be at the longarmer on Monday.

They turned out beautiful!. I had blocks left over too. That's how I knew I did something wrong. Thankfully I didn't have it sewn together yet.

Both colorways make for lovely quilts. It is great to see what others have done with the pattern.
