All done cutting these orange peels for the 4 year olds quilt. They are so pretty I almost don't want to sew them but can't wait for the finished product. I used Kona Solids Melonball for the orange peels and am using a Kona grey for the backing. I used the @accuquilt 4.5" Orange Peel Die to cut all of the orange peels.
I don’t know if, when, or how this will get done, and that doesn’t bother me. I have a clear vision for the end. I have all the pieces I need to start. But the plan to get from here to there is murky, and hand piecing this is going to be my crossword puzzle for the next few months. The goal is tiny little bits of progress on this one... Swipe to see the leftover orange peels I’m using. They came from the cutting outside pieces of 6” quarter circle squares. Some are from my #midnightsunquilt and some are from my #crimsonandblushquilt (previously called #bloomerang quilt - can’t decide what I like better.) I hope I like the actual quilt as much as the idea of it. It’s born entirely out of one sentence from a @Heidi.parkes workshop where she said to examine what is left behind in the process of making. #handpiecing#bojagiinspired#scrapquilt#patchworkquilt#robertkaufman#essexlinen#handmadequilt#modernquilt#orangepeel#orangepeelquilt
I can’t believe we are coming up on this quilt’s 1 year anniversary! Does anyone else get sentimental with these types of things?! It’s crazy to think back on life one year ago. What a ride. To celebrate, this pattern (paper and digital) is 25% off this week! No code needed. . I’m teaching a Shades of Citrus class tomorrow from 10am-2pm at @mysewingshoppe! Sign up via the link in my bio...I’d love to see you there!
When the store bought “quilt” on your bed (read that as sanctuary and relaxing place) starts looking like picture 2, you realize maybe you should more diligently work on the #orangepeelquilt you started a couple years ago. It’s all cut and about 20% of the blocks are done. But it’s a #kingsizequilt so I grant myself a lot of down time! But, full disclosure, the post just delivered black Brussels washer linen for marrakesh pants. Which I need. But I won’t touch that until tomorrow at least. Cross my heart! 😂😂😂 #quilt#quiltersofinstagram#sewcialists#sewover50 But now that I think about it, isn’t the stereotype that quilters are over 50? Which is totally not true.
Happy Quilt. This one went to a very jolly lady in England who just loves bright cheerful feedsack quilts from the 30’s and 40’s. Lots more in store . #orangepeel#orangepeelquilt#feedsackfabric #happyquilt#collectablequiltcompany #northernireland#worldwideshipping
