Hi there! I'm on a roll here this week.. a half roll that is. I fell in love with a quilt that Fat Quarter Shop shared on Instagram and decided that I would have to make it. It uses their Orange Peel templates and their Round Robin Pattern. I hopped online and ordered the Birds of Liberty Half Roll and as a special treat I picked up the adorable small Lori Holt Cute Cuts mat. Just because.
For some reason, I had thought the half roll was half length strips, like 2 1/2" x 22, why? No idea. It has 18 full width of fabric strips, and if I hadn't already traced my small template onto miles of Quilter's Select Appli-Web Plus I would have made it bigger. As it is, I only used 22 inches of each strip to cut these 144 small orange peels.
I'm not sure which fabric I'll use for the background. I need to check my stash of dots or maybe a white on white. Have you seen Nadra's version on Instagram? Precious.
Well time to make some decisions. I'm looking forward to a lot of blanket stitching. A LOT! Happy days!
