Orange peeling it up - join me?

I decided that the very last border of Ashley's progressive quilt will be single orange peels! I sent her a super secret picture of the whole quilt and presented my idea to her, which she loved (yay!). We're going to collaborate on this border; we're each making two sides of orange peels on 5" low volume squares. We are using a tutorial over at Crazy Old Ladies. I am LOVING how it looks already (it needs pink though) and I'm pretty sure my husband will have to make sure I actually hand off this thing to her. ;)


In my last post (I'm still responding to comments - thank you for continuing my food for thought), I promised myself I wouldn't "force" anything on my blog. I enjoyed these SO much today, though, and I think I finally have an idea for my Pretty Potent bundle (maybe - that idea could change into a billion other ones).

So... is there any interest in an Orange Peel Quilt Along this summer? We could discuss different methods for making them, and I would draw up some inspiration and designs. I also gathered some tips from making them just today. The categories could be mini quilts, finished quilts, and "just the top." I know summer can get hectic so we could make it continue throughout the whole three months or so. Any size or shape or layout welcome. If you're interested, please let me know!

  1. Yes, I'd be interested in a Quilt along with Orange Peel. Started one a while back but haven't had much time for handwork.

  2. I'm in, but for Xmas... I love the link you provided, I did a circle quilt just like this, using interfacing. And I was going crazy to decide how to do the orange peel: fusing, straight, zigzag or blanket stitch... It is true, I could do it that way. I'm afraid tough it might take too long. I'm really, really curious about your ideas.
