Colour me Orange!

This month we had a challenge at our Modern group. It was Orange Fizz. As soon as it was announced, I knew that I wanted to make this little nail polish quilt.

 These Cotton and Steel fabrics were perfect for this


Here I am showing my little quilt. Not sure if you can see, but my fingernails match  : )


I love me some bright polish!


This pattern is available at  'It's sew Emma'


For the back, I used a piece of fabric naming the months because I think every month should be a different colour nail polish

I'm not sure yet, but I may give this to the young girl that does my nails sometimes. Perhaps for Christmas .......

I couldn't agree with you more about every month having its own nail polish. That is such a fun mini, I love the fabrics you used. It's perfect :)

Brilliant quilt and brilliant idea done up in nail polish. I think I just need to make about every quilt you've made to get your ideas into my mind--you have such cute ideas for things!

Love the use of the Cotton/Steel--they are made for each other!

This is such an adorable pattern. It couldn't have taken too long to make... did it? Definitely the perfect gift for a nail stylist. I don't have one though as I have gotten hooked on Jamberrys. This is certainly a darling finish, Carla. As always, beautiful work.

My girls recently painted their nails an orange shade, too!

Teresa in Music City said...

What a great idea Carla! I know she would feel special with such a thoughtful gift :) You did a beautiful job of working those fabrics - I love it! I have a granddaughter who would love this too, so I'm off to check out the pattern :)

What a cute quilt and colour. It makes me realise that I have not painted my nails in ... ages. I should. Warmer weather is coming, and it is the season for pretty toes.

Rene' said...

Perfect fabrics for this nail polish mini!

What Elizabeth said in her comment up there, that is exactly how I feel. I want to make every single thing that you make. This is adorable! I think I want to make a smaller version for my granddaughter.
