Sunday Past Time

 Many Years ago I hand pieced an Orange Peel quilt top...when I finished it I realized that I didn't like the background fabric and didn't want to quilt it so I sold the top and binding at a quilt show...telling myself that I would make another some day....Never got around to it but I always wanted an Orange Peel quilt. Here's my compromise....a miniature Orange Peel...8 inches by 10 inches... with each Peel being 2 inches finished.  Small enough to qualify as a true miniature.  I don't think I will ever make a full bed size so this will just have to do.

I noticed some of my pictures having these dark edges...the shutter on my camera is starting to stick...hope it is just a temporary thing...I use my Canon quite a bit and would hate to have to buy a new one.

Anyway...should you ever come to visit...this mini will be hanging in the main bath...along with a Dresden Plate in Miniature.  One should have quilts in a bathroom, too...don't you think?

Lovely Gail. I've never done an Orange Peel, but do like the design. Quilts in a bathroom? Why not? I think I have quilts in every room of the house... except the bathroom. Must fix that!
