Citrus Sorbet

Don't you think 'Citrus Sorbet' is a fitting name for this block?

It's for the main deck quilt. I am loving the geometric--almost retro-- look of this citrus-colored block. (If you are really an astute reader, you may be saying to yourself, "Gee, haven't I seen this block before?"

Well, since you asked, yes, you have. It's the same block I used for the pink/black artwork here.). It would take a gazillion of these to make just a small deck quilt to toss over the glider. Well, maybe not a gazillion. I could probably get by with 100 of them.

But do I really want to do that much work for a deck quilt?

I need to make a lot more than one quilt. I would need three other smaller quilts for the chair backs and a lot of pillows. If you are new to this blog, or don't remember the deck quilts, you can click here "Deck-or-ate" to see last year's quilt color scheme. I've used them for two summers now. They are still in perfect shape.

Oh, but I am so loving these new colors. Just look at sixteen blocks together.

I guess I will just sew merrily along until I get sick of it. If I end up with enough to do the deck, then I will. If not, this design would make a cool table runner.


  1. Snazzy!! Love the color combos.

  2. Lovin' the color! Working on those bright , sunny colors must make you feel good!

  3. Citrus named it right, Zoey! The colors say "Spring".
    Keep deck-or-ating!

  4. It would certainly look gorgeous on your deck...that's the kind of colours I love for outside, the brighter, the better:-) I always look forward to when the stores start selling their summer dishes, the rainbow of colours they come in is just awesome!! xox

  5. Your citrus colors are reminding me that yes, the warm sun will shine upon my face again one of these days. I still have not dared to browse through my White Flower Farm catalog. You are very brave to begin ordering bulbs and plants for the coming season!
