Orange Zig Zag by Barbara Brackman

If you have been following along on my Sisterhood of Scraps stories, then you probably know about my love of the color Orange.

One of the Orange quilts that have been on my “MUST MAKE Pinterest Board” is this antique quilt from Barbara Brackman’s quilt collection. I was so excited when she let me include it in the Sisterhood series of books. Then comes along All Hallow’s Eve by Fig Tree and Co, and I became obsessed with the orange’s in this collection, the color is officially named pumpkin. Not too bright or not too orange….just right.
I knew I had found the perfect fabric to remake Barbara’s quilt. Stock # 20354-11 just in case you want to rush to the store to get some.

Instead of using the entire collection of All Hallow’s Eve for my quilt, I decided to pull from my scraps.

This is just a sampling of some of the fabrics I pulled, and I added a few brand new ones that are coming soon.

Can you spy any fabrics you have not seen yet?

I  had to use some of the Lollies from Jen Kingwell’s collection. Lollies are an 8 in 1 fabric, and each fabric

measures approx. 5″ wide by the length of the goods. This print was from her Remix collection. When you see stuff like this, you just have to grab it.

Who knows when you are going to need it. I am glad I had it in my stash.

My version of Barbara’s quilt that is in the book was made with the majority of the fabrics

on the darker side from my collection of Lollies.

So many fabric choices, and since they were all Lollies, I knew they would all match beautifully.

I can’t wait to get started on my orange version.

What is your favorite color?

Stay Tuned.

    I love this quilt and look forward to seeing your progress! I’ve seen several quilts in the Sisterhood of Scraps but didn’t notice this one until you featured it here. I definitely need to buy the book.
