I’ve been brewing up some ideas for the Brit Quilt Swap. At first I thought cathedral windows, but then I decided I didn’t like the finish (not that quilty and no binding) so have settled on an orange peel pattern instead. The effect is similar, but has the advantage of using more feature fabrics. That means extra rainbowy goodness. Excellent.

it’s just slapped on the design wall right now, which explains the wonkiness
There’s a little bit of needle turn applique involved, but I don’t mind too much. I say that now, but ask me again when it’s finished.

I’m looking forward to getting my stitch on this weekend.

    From Bristol, TN, USA “Good afternoon”. Have recently discovered the Orange Peel and found your OP on Pinterest. I have a question for you. I noticed that you have machine straight-stitched your peels to the background square using what looks like a wide allowance. Will you be leaving your peels that way for a raw-edge finish? Sincerely, Marion Kyle
