Kathy Adler sent me this photo of her Aunt Millie’s Garden quilt. She named it Orange Obsession. I love it! I have my own obsession going on with orange so it’s particularly nice to see Kathy’s version of this quilt.

Congrats to Alice R. who will be getting this stash of wool/nylon blend thread. I sort of hate to see it go, but I’ve had a while and not found a place to use it—Alice, I hope you start stitching with it soon!
