Design Wall Monday #3 - Indian Orange Peel Update

I haven't worked on my Indian Orange Peel quilt since way before Christmas. The next class is at the end of March and before then I need to sew the 120 paper pieced arcs. Until mid December, I had sewn 10 arcs.
On my design wall today are the 12 arcs I sewed yesterday, bringing my grand total to 22.

According to my production chart, I should have sewn 50 arcs by January 15th, so now I am only 28 arcs behind schedule!

What's on your design wall today?

You sewed 12 arcs yesterday, it is no time to beat yourself up for being behind. The arcs look great. Have fun getting the rest done. It is supposed to be an enjoyable hobby after all.

Chris said...

Your arcs are just stunning. I love the colors.

Melinda said...

Just keep on piecing and you can get them done. The ones you have so far are beautiful!

Plum Cox said...

So lovely! I wish that they were on my wall instead of yours! Keep up the good work (play!) and you'll be up to date in no time!

Mary said...

You really must like foundation/paper piecing! I'm not a fan but I do like the precision of doing Paper-pieced blocks. That's a lot of stitching for one day! Good luck making the rest before the deadline.

NEEDLE BENDER said...

Lovely colors and choice of patterns. I've not jumped into paper piecing yet, but this makes me want to do it.

Diane said...

I remember these--the arcs are so pretty-I'm betting you'll get caught up.

Bonnie said...

Production chart???? Wow. You go girl. They look terrific.

Those are so great! I think it's time to make a brand new production chart so you won't be behind. :) You are so fast, you'll be right where you want to be real soon.

I think 12 in one day is a lot. They look great. I am sure you will catch up in no time.

Oh wow! These are wonderful! I love the colors and the shapes -- NY Beauty and Orange peels are some of my favorites -- something about the curves and points.... yours are just gorgeous!
