I was pretty pleased with how the block turned out. However it took me a long time to do it and I did not really enjoy the whole process involved with making the petals. One thing I often hear about is how it's important to enjoy the whole process of creating and not dwell on the finished product.
So decided this is going to be my last Orange Peel block since the process was not enjoyable to me. But I still wanted to do something "Orange". So I decided to make an Orange Zinger! Doesn't that like a cocktail?
The Orange Zinger is make from a base fabric and selvages. I had tons of fun picking out which selvages to use and stitching them down. Plus it was a little stroll down memory lane to see some selvages from past quilts.
So I'm swapping out my Orange Peel for the Orange Zinger! Here's the link to make your own Zinger quilt at the Selvage blog....
I also won this week a selvage needle case from a give away at Scraps n Strings. She has a really cool spiderweb quilt so check it out.
Anyone else done a selvage quilt?
