i love sewing curves. i could sew curves all day long. it is a nice change of pace from just straight seams all the time. so when i saw that Sew Kind of Wonderful released a pieced orange peel pattern called Mod Citrus, i knew i had to try it out!
since i knew i didn't have time to start a new project, we were starting to pack up our old house at the time, i decided to just make a table runner from some of my bigger scraps. this is going to look great in our new house! (only a week until moving day!)
i used my low volume stash to make a scrappy background. i even pieced a few low volume on low volume orange peels to make a broken orange peel look.
for the quilting i did my standard straight line quilting, but then went back and echoed the orange peels and i love the effect. i think once we are settled in our new home, i am going to have to revisit this pattern and make a much bigger quilt, maybe even bed sized!
Pattern: Mod Citrus by Sew Kind of Wonderful

Oh so beautiful! I have trouble sewing curves but I sure love looking at them. Love that background too, pops beautifully against the bright orange peels!ReplyDelete
I so love this. It is simple and fun and just terrific. What a great finish - especially love the touch of going back and emphasizing the peels!ReplyDelete
