This quilt is an original design - an experiment in split orange peels, low volume, and scrappy (somewhat planned) improv piecing. I'll be sharing more about the process when it's *really* all finished.
I just realized I look headless behind the quilt... hahaha! I must have been looking at the sky.
I'm quilting it now! As I explained in this week's post of the Orange Peel Quilt-A-Long, I top-stitched my orange peels after I fused them. I'm free-motion quilting all over the low volume background with whatever design fits my mood... and it will be done soon! Anna Maria Horner's cross-stitch like Dowry fabric is my choice for the backing (a little beautiful relief from piecing backs). I think I'm going to bind it in the same fabric. :)
I'm so excited to announce that I will be teaching this quilt at Pennington Quilt Works this coming October (the 6th and 20th)!!! This is the first of three classes I have planned to teach. I'll update the blog soon with a tab and much more info, including registration! If you live in the PA/NJ/DE area, I hope you'll consider this two-part class! I am ecstatic to be an official teacher of quilting (one of my dreams) - I'll be talking more about this soon. :)
