My Papa is a quiet, strong man. He loves fishing, tying flies, watching football, and the color orange. He's the one who taught me how to whistle (we started with the Andy Griffith theme, of course), and build a birdhouse.

My Gram is a kind, fiery woman. She loves country style, gardening, visiting with just about anyone, and any color but orange. She's the lady who taught me how to count back change, play a scale on the piano, and who started (and has unfailingly enabled) my skeleton key collecting.

Of course, I had to make them a quilt. With orange. When I saw Joel Dewberry's new Heirloom line with the Citrine palette, I knew what I had to do.

Quilt pattern modestly borrowed from Faith at Fresh Lemons

6 selected prints from Joel Dewberry's Heirloom in Citrine cut into 6.5" blocks
The sashing and binding is Kona stone
The backing is some camel-colored flannel I bought from Joann's on sale.
It's approximately 54 x 64 inches in size.

Merry Christmas Gram and Papa!!!
