I designed the Crossed Orange Peel quilt last year and now it is available in my shop! To read all about my process, the fabrics and specifics click here. Essentially I created this pattern as a modern take on the classic orange peel block. It is hand pieced and finished with machine appliqué. If you've never done hand piecing, don't fret! The pattern comes with my free bonus 8 page technique guide, so you can learn this simple technique and enjoy some hand sewing.

The pattern has instructions to make a 19" mini quilt but you could repeat the blocks to make any size quilt!

Don't let the curves frighten you either! The design is actually a great one for beginners as it can be quite forgiving and there are lots of tips and photographs in the pattern that guide you step by step to make the blocks. 

I recently taught this pattern to the South West Modern Quilt Guild and they made such beautiful versions of the block. I love seeing the pattern in different fabrics and people creating their own projects with my design. You can see them being added to #crossedorangepeel
