A few Orange Peels

  I missed setting up some Friday Finds this week, but some of those important things got the  four insurance company  thing, and freshly fluffed and washed quilts for the trunk show line up.  Most of that is sorted and ready to go.

    That means I got in the sewing room for a couple of hours to stitch up a few Orange Peels.  I shifted things on the design wall just to see what I was getting myself into with this project.  I have to smile because I still tend to group like colors and values together.  I am not sure I will leave it like this.  I have more light prints to sew.....and I think I need more dark and medium value prints.   I really had intended to mix them all up but now I will just wait and see.

  The Birds in the Air is stacked and ready to sew into rows.  I have had enough triangle fun for a while.    I think this was the final arrangement.  Every time I moved one, I found I had to move another one....and so on.  So I finally stopped and said enough.

   Wow.....the sun just came out!  It has been days of clouds and rain.  More is on the way, so I am sure this won't last long.   I need to grab some Vitamin D.   Happy stitching.

It is funny how you naturally arranged your pumpkin seeds as though you were making a watercolor design. : ) Looks very pretty that way, too.
Your "triangle fun" has produced a really nice quilt.
Hope you had a chance yo soak up some sun!

Your triangle quilt is a beautiful mix of colours and I think the present arrangement is ideal!

I'm playing with triangles right now, but they aren't as colorful as yours. Yes, your pumpkin seeds do look like a watercolor design. We went from an extremely warm, sunny day into a very nasty storm (tornado alerts).

The pumpkin seeds are looking beautiful! Of course you laid them out that way you're a watercolorist at heart and you used such pretty florals for them.

You must have a lot of floral prints in your stash. Me, I have very few. Your seed blocks have a very water color quilt style look to them.
