orange peel quilt-a-long

Well, I had so much fun with the last QAL that I’m jumping in on another! This one is for the orange peel quilt-a-long, hosted by Julie of button-button.

In keeping with pushing myself to try new things, this project definitely fits the bill. The technique we will be using to make the orange peels is all hand-stitched appliqué. I’m a little afraid of anything involving hand stitching so this will be a challenge. But I’m looking forward to learning something new!

If you’ve been tempted to join in on a quilt-a-long but have been worried about feeling rushed, this might just be the perfect one for you! The plan is to go at a nice easy pace. You can also pick your project size based on how much time you think you’ll have. Better yet, you don’t really even have to decide on a finished size to get started, since you make one block at a time. I’m planning on doing a lap-sized quilt, but this would be fantastic as a mini or even a cushion.

Head over to button-button for all the details. Julie has also posted about materials and fabric choices here to get everyone started. I’m still a little stumped about fabrics, but reading her post definitely gave me some ideas.

I’ll be sharing my progress along the way, here as well as on instagram, so stay tuned for more!

Have a fantastic weekend :)

  1. I’m so excited to see what you make as part of this QAL – I love a good orange peel and have an idea for an orange peel quilt brewing but it’s a little further down on the wishlist at the moment so I will have to live through your sewing! :)
