IOP Update


I have an Indian Orange Peel obsession.


It's all I can think about.

After it languished on the design wall for 3 years with little attention, I am now obsessed with it! It's craziness!
The most time consuming part now is removing the paper from the back of the arcs before I piece the curves.
I can't wait to sew another curve and finish another block. I practically squeal with excitement each time I am successful!

I still cannot believe it!



Look here - I even joined two blocks together and it was easy. Everything fit amazingly well!

I just followed a link to you from another quilter's list of fave sites - it was the picture of the Indian Orange Peel that caught my eye. It looks great (but hard!)and I really like your eye for colour.

Jo said...

That looks great. So glad it all went together well

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Looks fabulous so far! Can't wait to see more.

I made several of those blocks many years ago but did not finish a quilt. I gave the parts to a friend who was more into paper piecing than I was. Mine were in browns and rusts. You are using luscious hot colors.

Who can stop when things are going well?!! Beautiful.

Needled Mom said...

That is fun sewing when it all comes out so well.

Cathy said...

It's looking so very very good! And I so agree with taking the paper off is the worst part.

Terri said...

An obsession is okay as long as you share it with us! I love the colors and that you are sharing it with us. A recipe for success. Lol

That is how I feel about my pickledish, so much fun! I keep thinking what a great quilt to big stitch with some black perle cotton. Where did you get this pattern? Yours is tempting to me to make one.

audrey said...

What a great pattern--kind of scary because it's so intricate though! Love that you're excited about it. Those are the best projects!

Nell's Quilts said...

This is looking so good. Do they still remind you of teeth? I remember smiling when I read that post. Monsters out to get you. You've gotten the best of those orange peels - no more teeth ready to get you!

katie z. said...

Wow. That is so awesome.

Dasha said...

I'm exactly the same. A project can languish for years, then I get my teeth into it and get obsessed with it.
Lovely colours.

Chantal said...

The blocks are AWESOME! Your points are just amazing. I'm so happy for you. I believe this will be an amazing quit because the colours are so fantastic! Beeeeaaaauuutiful!!

Vicki W said...

I've had this pattern for a long time and I'm determined to make one for myself next year. I love all the bright colors in yours!

Kate said...

Looks like that class paid off big time. Looking forward to seeing all the finished blocks.

Congrats to getting to the IOP again! I had fabric here in February that was covering my spare bed and I haven't had the IOP since!! And, have been too busy since then to tackle it again. But, I am also making progress! We are going on vacation in a week, but I hope to get back to it again after I get back. You have inspired me to get at it again :-).
