A color palette and fabrics were chosen. I borrowed this quasi-red, white and blue theme from Chelsea at Patch the Giraffe. (Don't worry she knows!)
Then I got to work pieced the background squares, 2 1/2 inch half-square triangles. I used this super fast method to make 8 at a time.
And ended up with this lovely piece of patchwork all laid out on the floor. Fun right?
Then it was time to make the orange peels. I used this method.
And when I was done laying them all out. They looked like this.
Now to start fusing them down.
I'm linking up with this weeks WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
