Orange Peel - Pumpkins Seed Quilt.......Progress from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


I have decided to incorporate 

flying geese blocks

into the Orange Peel/Pumpkins Seed quilt top...

After scratching my head a bit,
I figured out the cutting dimensions
for the flying geese units...
2 flying geese measure a 5 inch square.

Flying Geese with solid backgrounds...

Flying Geese with text backgrounds...

The flying geese will break up the monotony
of all of those pumpkins seeds...

they will help move the eye across the quilt
in different directions...

Okay, I have a plan for the design...
now I can just sew the units:

The Quilt Retreat gave me a great start ...

Orange Peel or Pumpkin Seed Quilt... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


This design goes by several names

Orange Peel and Pumpkin Seed

are two of them...

I am attending an Oregon quilt retreat this week

I am starting a Pumpkin Seed quilt...

The seeds are piling up...

I used the Sizzix Big Shot Plus
to cut out the seed shapes...

The Sizzix made quick work of all
the curved cutting...

Time to play with the seeds
and different background squares...

Tomorrow I will cut and sew some

flying geese blocks

and add them to the design.

They found that fun fabric to make a ...

Eternal Moment Test Quilt from Sew Sunshine

Here is my test quilt of "Eternal Moment" pattern by Simone of Simone Quilts. This pattern is currently in Make Modern Magazine issue 32.

 I wanted a rainbow theme for the orange peels and used up some scrappy low volume pieces for the background. 

 Lots of orange petals. I didn't want to raw edge them so I used freezer paper templates and starch to turn each petal. 
Laying out some of the petals to see how they look behind the giant orange peel was so much fun. 
I kept stopping to take more pictures of the progress because once ...
