INDIAN ORANGE PEEL QUILT

My latest quilt for Christmas is the "Indian Orange Peel" I got the pattern from the Karen Stone book and the sofware. I have made the 120 arcs or oranges wedges.



Then the centers are made.

Then the wedges are sewed around the centers, here are two blocks.

Here is one row.


Here are two rows sewed together.


And here are all the rows sewed together. This is the middle of the quilt. After the middle is done, extra arcs have to sewed around the quilt to finish the orange peel effect. Now the border has to be made. The border is just as intricate and will have to be set in

Hey, Rosy,
found you via Febermania.
Love your other work - triangle circles
If I'd not seen your wedges first
I would not think of this quilt as 'Jaws'
Are the resulting patterns the most interesting?
Hugs,
Gerry

Hi
I know this is an older but I am making this same quilt pattern. I have a question, I noticed that as I pin an arc to the centre 4 patch , my arcs are 3\4 of an inch longer than the centre piece. And I really have to stretch it out so they match and after I sew the 2 together it curve up. Did you have to stretch out your centre piece edge to match up to the arc piece?
Thank you
Paulette
