Indian Orange Peel

This is my latest project. Karen Stone's Indian Orange Peel. My quilt is all about relative value, and balancing the color. The upper right will be a gray, the fabric that was there had the same value as it's dark below, which needs to be a bit darker. Mary suggested I paint it, so I will experiment with that today. I still am not sure about the center square in the fourth row, I like the fabrics, but there is a bit too much contrast. I have all the remaining arches planned out, and will post more photo's as it progresses.

Happy Valentines Day <3

Gorgeous color palette and value work. This is something I couldn't or wouldn't do so I admire your work!! Happy Valentine's Day to you!

What Gerrie said! I detest paper piecing, so I will probably never make one of these quilts, but I sure love seeing the ones other people do and your colors are gorgeous...very warm and spicy!

Marlene!!!

This is the most dramatic orange peel I've ever seen! You have such a good eye for value and color...doesn't look like anything needs painting to me.
