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?

  7. 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.
