These are the last two houses for the Country Homecoming Quilt Along over at http://kimsbigquiltingadventure.blogspot.com Go check out what everyone else's houses look like!
Now, I need to order a sashing and border fabric in black brushed cotton, so I can start on the border appliqué.
This one is from Paulette over at http://sweetp-paulette.blogspot.com Isn't hers fantastic? I am trying to decide if I will use wool felt or brushed cottons for the border.
I decided to join the fad and make an orange peel quilt. I am thinking a baby quilt... Here are my colors: yellow, pink, green, red, blue, orange, and purple.
I am using the method from the tutorial over on http://crazyoldladiesquilts.blogspot.com/2014/02/orange-you-glad-tutorial.html
I am thinking 10 x 12 on my layout and very similar to this quilt they showed except for a one color background.
Gathering fabrics for these orange peels was really easy because of my scrap bins. They are located below my cutting table in rolling plastic carts.
Each drawer contains a different color and most of them are over flowing!
I can actually remove the drawers and dig through them over at my ironing board.
My daughter made me cute labels for each drawer.
I need to decide whether I am going to use a white background or a gray background for my orange peels. Which color do you think?
