I have been very busy working on a new version of my Pickled Orange Peel Quit.
I have always wanted to make a scrappy version of this quilt ever since I first made it
a number of years ago.
Here is the original quilt.

To plan this new version I first played with my coloured pencils.

I then choose the fabrics. I knew I wanted to use low volume fabrics
and contrasting brights.

Then I did a test block and loved the black centre!

Then it was cutting time. This alone took me a week with templates and scissors!

Then it was basically lots and lots of sewing!

Foundation piecing can be a slow process but I do love how acurate the technique is.

Once all the foundation pieced arcs were completed it was time to assemble the 64 blocks!

I lay all the elements of the blocks out first. I really didn't want any of the same fabrics next to one another.
Lucky I have a lounge room floor thats big enough!

Once the quilt top was complete I decided that I really wanted some special quilting.
I asked Carolyn from Free Bird Quilting and she said yes.

I am so happy with the quilting, Carolyn did an amazing job.

After I completed the quilt I decided that it would be much easier with templates,
so Creative Abundance and I made some.

This will make cutting all the pieces from this quilt so much easier.
I just wish I had them before I started mine.

The finished quilt size is 203cms x 203cms (80" x 80")

The pattern is available as PDF downloads from my etsy store.

Wholesale patterns orders from Creative Abundance.
