June Quilties-Orange Sherbet

This month's color theme for quilties is Orange Sherbet. I was inspired by Quilting Arts Magazine's emphasis on Going Green. I decided to make both June quilties from recycled items. This orange quiltie is made from a orange mesh bag that contained fruit. I believe it was nectarines from Fresh and Easy. It was the perfect color for the quiltie. The mesh made a lovely lacy flower. I added a little silk flower and button. The mesh was hand sewn to the edge of the quiltie. I left the mesh on the bottom of the quiltie and tied with bits of fabric. This swap in on Yahoo group Fabric in Altered Arts. Now I'm working on my June Garden themed quiltie.
