Hello Quilty Friends!
If you have kept up with our ORANGE BLOSSOMS SEW ALONG, then you have (13) orange blocks and (12) LEAF BLOCKS from the last two weeks. SO MANY of you are sewing along in our FACEBOOK GROUP and I am loving seeing this quilt come together. It is a quick and charming project that I KNOW we will all be enjoying this summer.
This morning, those of you who purchased the kit, have been sent your FINAL PATTERN EMAIL a few minutes ago so it should be arriving in your inbox soon.
For those of you have jumped in with us since then, the WEEK #3 PATTERN will be available tomorrow IN THE SHOP before noon for everyone else.
COUPLE QUICK TIPS AND HINTS
For those of you who are working on your oranges: We have seen a few people leave out the center “dimple” in their oranges for a more simple orange and we think the outcome has been lovely as well. Personally, I prefer that little addition as it gives the fruit a little bit more shape but the plain oranges we have seen have been just as lovely so I thought I would share that as an option for others of you who might be thinking about it.
For those of you working on your leaves…don’t stress too much about which way your leaves are facing. I know that the instructions call for a certain number of each kind but I have a small confession… we made all of our LEAF BLOCKS in one direction due to a little miscommunication in the office. And guess what? I still love them as much and am not going to rip them apart and start over. So if you find that you have made them all in one direction or you are worried about your placement… don’t be! It will still be wonderful.
If you are working on your cream selection… the scrappier, the better. Do not be afraid of adding in your cream scraps or cream favorites from your stash into the backgrounds of these. You cannot go wrong with soft creams especially if they have hints of tan, orange or green in them!
Can’t wait to show everyone the final layout and quilt!!
