Orange Peel Blocks

Orange Peel Mini-Quilt WIP

They’re here! My hand-stitching pals returned their finished blocks to me last weekend, and they’re SO DAMN PRETTY!

I’ve played around with them a bit and decided on a basic layout concept, so now I will have to arrange them into a final layout (and photograph it so I know how it goes), press and trim each one, then start sewing!

    Orange peel? But not a single one has orange on it. :-) (snicker)

    Oh my! Those are gorgeous! Can’t wait to see it all together. I don’t get it though.. several people worked on the blocks?

      Thank you! Yes, this is the second project my little (3-person) hand-quilting group has worked on – we’re all together making a mini-quilt for each of us. This one is the one I assigned for everyone to work on – this post talks a bit about planning the project:

      So each of my pals and I made a third of these, now I get to sew them together!!
