It was an ORANGE weekend...

I've written before about the Girl's weekends that I
attend. This one was slightly different. Several of
my sisters, our daughters and daughters-in-law
were invited to bring a 12 inch square- the only
restriction being that it should contain the color orange.
What an assortment!

We laid the squares out, pieced them together and added a border, backing and binding. Then we hung the finished piece on the log wall of our cabin. It will stay there- a memory of our ORANGE weekend. It is such a privilege to be a part of a multi-generational group of women who laugh and cry together and create art rather unintentionally!
From left to right the blocks are from me, my sister Linda, my sister Bonnie, a group scrappy creation made on the spot to complete our nine-patch, my niece Kari, my sister Mari, my niece Amanda, my daughter Rachel and my daughter-in-law Erin.

Here's a close-up of the work of Rachel and Erin-

aren't they amazing?
