Triangle Orange Peel Quilting

I have had a small amount of time to quilt in the past couple of days, and have tried to make every minute count!  I hate to take the time to even blog right now, but enjoy sharing my progress.  And the kids are more tolerant of me quilting than being on the computer, so I try to do my computer stuff during quiet/nap time and other stuff while they play in the same room.

On-seam orange peel quilting.

I did the on-seam orange peel quilting for my son's plus quilt, and really enjoy how quickly it goes and how cool the finished circles are!  Since this quilt is for my daughter, I like that they will have sort of matching quilts (geometric shapes and similar quilting).  I knew that on triangles it would create a cool flower pattern, but I didn't think of the resulting flower-within-a-circle pattern on the back:

Turning out cooler than I expected!

Okay, enough talk, more quilting!

  4. Love the quilting on the back! This quilt is turning out so well! Of course, they all do, but I love the Salt Water fabric and the flowers, and just everything! :)

  5. This is really nice. I haven't tried orange peel quilting yet - it seems intimidating!

    1. Thanks Jan! It actually quite simple, I just stitch a gentle curve from one point to another. They are far from perfect, but the overall pattern is quite forgiving!
