WiP + Purge


I like to do a bit of hand quilting here and there. There is no rush for the Orange peel QAL project but I felt like working on it. I finished the quilting today and I love it.


I haven't ironed the marking off yet. It is cushion cover to become.


I also like the orange peel quilting on squares. I used it on quilt called Ooh la la which I made last year. It makes the square look more acceptable, lol.


You can see the quilting better on back side. These squares also started the idea of cutting all scraps into squares and make Purge quilt.


You can see what the usual scrap drawer look like and one with already cut squares. I precut bigger scraps into 7.5cm square size and some into 7cm strips. We'll see with how many I end up. As you can see I still have some work to do.

  4. The orange peel cushion quilting is super delightful. I do like how the orange peel dresses up the 'boring' squares, too. :)

  5. This is an orange peel post - two different kinds of orange peels contained herein! Both very pretty - especially those tone on tone orange peels in the cushion project :D

    Purge quilt sounds fun, and scrapbustingly worthwhile! I'd need a 2 year long Purge, lol! If it got continued after mid-September I'd join in - this is the first time I've read the details :D

  9. Love both your orange peels!! My orange peel quilting always looks like banana peels so I haven't tried for a while. I really want to make a Purge quilt too but I have so many things to do already!

  19. I LOVE the Orange Peel quilt. The colours are perfect and your quilting is exquisite in it's simplicity. Your orange peel quilting on the squares is wonderful. The quilt looks as good on the front as it does on the back. I like the idea of cutting up your scraps into squares. I might just do that with my own scraps.
