Go Giveaway

Linda over at Lavender Ridge is having an Accuquilt Go! giveaway.  Go on over and take a look.

On the stitching front I was so excited thinking I was on the last two or three orange peels when I thought I'd count them.  Well...poop!  I had miss calculated and had one more row, sixteen more orange peels before I was done!!  So I have prepped them all and now I have to get stitching!

I've also started to cut out the blocks and the applique for the centre block for this lovely quilt.  I'm making this one for my bedroom.  I started the applique tonight.  I know...I should finish the orange peel quilt first but who can resist a new project?!?  I've really been loving the hand sewing, it's so portable and I love sitting up in bed at night watching/listening to a movie or show on TV while I stitch away.   I'm using French General's Rural Jardin and a few of the Rouenneries range as well. Oops!  Sorry the picture is sideways.
Enjoy your weekend.

Bye for now,


  1. Rowena,

    Are the background fabrics for the orange peel shirtings? I noticed the French General reference but thought that might be for the second quilt.

    I'm trying your suggestion of the glue basting method tomorrow for some small hexagons. Wish me luck.
    Happy Quilting,

  2. I've never tried orange peels but yours look wonderful. I look forward to seeing the entire quilt top. The French Bouquet pattern looks fun. My favorite way to watch TV is with some hand stitching or quilting in my hands.

  3. Love your orange peel...and i know i can never resist a new project either!!! what a dilemma!!
    I'm very sorry to hear of your brother's passing. so sad. my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Wow Rowena! You've got a couple of neat hand-work projects there!! Awesome! A quick look through some of your blog and am very impressed with your projects!!!
    I am working on mostly PhDs (Projects Half Done) right now. Trying to get caught up so I can start something new...
    Thanks again for the visit to my blog! 8-)

  5. How fabulous, Rowena! I love love love your orange peel and that new quilt will be fabulous! I am drooling just listening to your fabric choices for it! Can't wait to see more...
