I've been steadily working away on my Orange Peel quilt along quilt. I spent a decent chunk of time top stitching the orange peels down.
When I was finished I ended up with this massive pile of peels and half-square triangles ready and waiting to be laid out.
But when I started laying them out. I didn't like the size or how busy it was.
So I spent another day cutting 2.5 inch solid squares to break up the noise a little bit and ended up with this layout. You sort of lose the effect of the orange peel pattern I think....
I'm still not in love with it like I hoped I would be. The points on my orange peels are iffy at best. But I started piecing it together anyhow.
And when I did I ran into more problems with none of my seams matching up. Ugh. It was just one of those weeks I suppose. I set it aside and haven't touched it for 5 days.
I also wanted to give you a heads up that I'm training for and running a half-marathon at the end of October to benefit the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth or CHaD. You can find more information or donate on this page. I'm sure I'll still have time for sewing but the timeliness of my blog posts may suffer as a result.
Thanks for visiting and happy quilting!
