Orange Peel "Don't Hate Me Because I'm Skinny" Quilt

A while back I won a fat eight bundle of Emma Jean Jansen's delicious collection Terra Australis.



The colors are FABULOUS and I just LOVE the uniquely Australian details in the design.



I knew right away that I wanted to make an orange peel quilt out of it.


I started the quilt last summer, but finally got around to quilting it last week :)


Baby Olivia even tried to get me to quit working on it and play with her!




Several months ago, I sketched out a quilting pattern that I wanted.  It actually worked!!!  I love it and am so proud of myself!


It didn't take nearly as long as I thought to quilt it :)


Ta da!


For binding, I went with some half moon fabric that I have been saving for the perfect binding :)


I love Half Moon!


Hand binding is the BEST!!!


I had two extra blocks left over, so I used one for a label.

The "Don't hate me because I'm skinny," has to do with the fact that my orange peels are so skinny ;)  I designed them that way, and I love them, even though they aren't the traditional style ;D


This is my new favorite quilt :)


I am going to sleep under it tonight!


These feathers turned out so much better than I thought they would.


Life is good when what is in your mind actually comes out perfectly in the real world!
