Orange peels have been on my bucket list for awhile, though I don't think I included them on my Quilt Bucket List earlier this year... There are just so many amazing things I want to make but forget about! I saw one inspiration photo that really drew me in and I felt so inspired. It's from Three Kitchen Fairies. You can find her full post about the quilt here.
So using this beautiful quilt as a launch pad I sketched a design out. Ignore the colors for now. These just happened to be the pen colors I had on hand at the moment. Though the don't look to bad together. It's fun. It's edgy. It's a little haphazard and just far enough outside of my comfort zone to be exciting!
I picked up some super light weight fusible interfacing this afternoon and plan on trying this approach to making the orange peels. I like that there's no needle turning involved. Easier is always better in my book. I'll pull fabric tonight and hopefully get started soon! I'm thinking a loosely defined red, white and blue color palette?
