At long last the Orange Peel quilt I started for my mother-in-law is finished, scalloped border and all.

I started this quilt over a year ago but found the applique technique fiddly, so back into the UFO pile it went.  The fabric line is Bluebell (discontinued).  There are so many other gorgeous blue/white fabric lines available right now that if you want to make a blue/white quilt it would be hard to decide what to use.

My talented friend Reggie quilted this for me and did a great job.  I like the way the scalloped border echoes the rounded movement of the quilt center. 
Next I will embellish a small quilt I made last summer.  If I keep working I should catch up with myself by mid Summer!!
Wishing you happy quilting!



  1. Love it Barb, so pretty and fresh looking. I am on the 19th block of 28 for my Ohio Star quilt. hen I have to cut the plain blocks and curners to set it on point.

  2. It's great Barb! I admire all the blue and white quilts but I've not made one...yet!
