Today's the big day! Here are the winners of the Orange Peel Quilt-A-Long. It was SO cool seeing the different variations of orange peels/petals (you can see all 17 entries and their accompanying blog posts/Flickr pictures here). Thank you again to all of the sponsors and participants for a productive and creative summer. Orange peels and applique forever! <3

 She used raw edge applique. The four patches came first, and then she added peels... sooo pretty and a great idea!

A vibrant color scheme and creative decorative stitching!


Readers voted for the winner of the Viewer's Choice category! I did not vote to ensure neutrality.

    • The winner of the Viewer's Choice category wins a fat quarter bundle of one of the colorways of Moonshine by Tula Pink from The Intrepid Thread!

The Intrepid Thread

Renee led the pack with 44 votes! She also just won a ribbon for this quilt at her state fair. It really is gorgeous! Check out that quilting. If you haven't seen Renee's work, you need to check it out!

In second place was....
Solid Modern Orange Peel

 I just love Kristin's bold fabric choices and the background depth (from those lovely grays). Amazing. Plus, it's pieced instead of appliqued! Kristin will be getting a little surprise from me in the mail.

Hope you enjoyed the eye candy and the orange peel tutorials/tips this summer! The Orange Peel QAL tab will be up for your perusal. :) Check back tomorrow to see another project I've cooked up with peels...
