Q3 - orange peels finished


When Jess wrote that the link up for Orange peels QAL will be opened tomorrow, I knew I had to finish my cushion.
Quilty Habit

It is also on my FAL Q3 list which means another tick off. I'm at 4/12.


The background grey appears a lot lighter on pics and I don't know why. It is couch cushion that is why it is wider (20.5x13.5"). I actually put in one of those that came with the couch. Yes we used those but these days are over, lol.


The back is simple. There is just hidden zipper. I love this type of zipper because you can use any color. Secret revealed! I don't match hidden zippers like I usually do with exposed one.


I was thinking about binding the cushion. I even prepared double fold binding in grey but I decided on this simple look and I like it. It is not the first time I used this fabric/color combo. Do you remember my Divided basket?


Oh yes. My current fav combo.
What am I up to next? Another cushion. The front panel is ready to be quilted. More about this one once is done.

  1. Great finish! I am so tempted by orange peels... but I still have a healthy level of trepidation about appliqué. Maybe one of these days!

  3. Nothing like a deadline to help us be productive, is there? :) I don't blame you for not making hidden zippers too matchy - what's the point? Also, I hope you have been having a good week - I've been thinking about you!!

  20. Very nice. Your new cushion cover looks Christmassy to me, like a wreath. Come to think of it, your orange peel cushion is reminding me of Christmas lights. My mind must be feeling the Christmas spirit at the moment.
