Orange Peel along



It's time for an update for the Orange Peel QAL.


Orange Peel Quilt-Along!


At the last update I'd completed my first set of 6 peels.  I'm doing them in sets of 6 so I can reuse the freezer paper templates.  Since then I've completed another 2 sets - yellow, purple and orange.



My next 6 peels are prepared, one more to be basted and then I can start sewing them down to the background.  I don't really enjoy the hand sewing and I'm not sure why I didn't machine sew these if I'm honest.  I'm definitely not a hand patchworker!  



Ah well, I'm more than half way there now so I'm going to keep going!

Oh wow those are really pretty, Wendy! Love the fun colours and prints! I don't enjoy hand sewing either - I used to look forward to doing quilt bindings by hand, but age and arthritis caught up with me - and - just - NO! LOL!! I can do it when necessary, but I don't enjoy it :D

Your orange peals are so pretty! Have to agree with you on the hand sewing bit!

this is coming along well personally I enjoy hand stitching, I find it relaxing unlike when working at the machine I can feel how tense I seem to get
