"You want which colors?" by Jane Hillman

Graduation quilt for my niece.  She asked for International Orange and Lime Green.  It came out better than I might have thought.

Good job, love the color combination.  Makes me want to wake up to new colors instead of the traditional ones.  Thanks for sharing.

wonderful quilt, colors and pattern.  I really like the choice of colors, and then the variations within those colors.  Really makes it flow.  If just straight orange and green it would not have been the same.  Kind of like the difference between a cloudy day, or dappled sunlight.  From now on when doing two color quilts, I will vary the shades/fabrics within the colors.

Thank you all for such lovely comments.

The pattern that you have asked about is my own design.  It came about when the original idea for this quilt was Jacob's Ladder - often shown in two colors.  I found that after I had a good start on HST and 4 patches, that these two colors which do have high contrast are far to similar in value.  The Jacob's Ladder pattern didn't pop out, it all just muushed together.  So.......what to do with all those HST and 4-patch??????  After much trial and error.........this.    Jane
