Caution: Curves Ahead


So here is my progress on the Indian Orange Peel quilt. I've finished sewing all the blocks and the 25 blocks are stitched together. Whew! I was beginning to wonder if I'd make it this far. This isn't a quilt that you can speed through, for sure! For any of you who love working in a slow, precise, methodical fashion, this is the quilt pattern for you.

Now I need to decide what I'm going to do for the borders. The pattern does come with a border pattern, but I'm not going to use it. I suppose I could leave it as is, with no borders. Hmmm, I will have to think on it. By the way, if any of you are wondering, this pattern is by Karen Stone and is called Indian Orange Peel.

  1. Oh Terri, I absolutely love it!! I had been wanting to make this pattern and had been unable to find it with the sheets already printed. Until I went to AQS Lancaster. A vendor had them and I snatched it right up. I love paper piecing and just love the design of this quilt. I am looking forward to seeing what you will do for the borders. But what ever you choose, I am sure it will be fantastic. By the way, when I was in Lancaster, I was thrilled to see your quilt hanging, especially since I watched the progress on your blog!

  5. This is really nice... I'm not so good at the precise piecing, but wish I was! I like the colors a lot... I would love to learn more about the piece in the upper right hand corner of the photo... how'd you do that?

  6. Love the blue green colour combinations, very peaceful and sea-like. The complex opticals are impressive too. Don't envy you all that piecing though!

  8. Great color choices as usual. You really have a knack for that. Those points are killing me though. I will be happy to just look at your piece ok?

    That piece in the upper right corner is intriguing. Anything you can mention about that one too?

  11. Did you ever work out the borders for this quilt? I too have the pattern, and thought I would change the border. Or maybe just make it larger with more blocks. LOVE your colour palette.

  12. Hi Anonymous, yes I went with plain borders. If you look a little further in on my blog, you will see I added a lighter blue border to begin with, but my aunt, who was the recipient of this quilt didn't care for them so I changed them to another fabric. Thanks!!!
