I knew right away that I wanted to make an orange peel quilt out of it.
I started the quilt last summer, but finally got around to quilting it last week :)
Baby Olivia even tried to get me to quit working on it and play with her!
Several months ago, I sketched out a quilting pattern that I wanted. It actually worked!!! I love it and am so proud of myself!
It didn't take nearly as long as I thought to quilt it :)
For binding, I went with some half moon fabric that I have been saving for the perfect binding :)
I love Half Moon!
Hand binding is the BEST!!!
I had two extra blocks left over, so I used one for a label.
The "Don't hate me because I'm skinny," has to do with the fact that my orange peels are so skinny ;) I designed them that way, and I love them, even though they aren't the traditional style ;D
This is my new favorite quilt :)
I am going to sleep under it tonight!
These feathers turned out so much better than I thought they would.
Life is good when what is in your mind actually comes out perfectly in the real world!
