New Project......Orange Peel/Pumpkin Seed Quilt


After completing the Double Wedding Ring

quilt top I am ready for a FUN, happy, quick project...

and I found one.



Orange Peel or Pumpkin Seed Quilt:



You can find this pattern on

Moda Bake Shop





I am using the Circle Magic acrylic template

to cut my circles






The cutting goes very quickly...






I cut through 14 yards of fabric the first day...

234 circles






Day 2......cut batting circles 

and layered them with circle fabrics






Day 2......begin stitching the circles






Looks like a stack of pancakes!






By the end of  Day 2 I have half my circle units completed.

This is going to be a FAST project.

I will be working on this every Monday,

so there is more to come!

Big job. What will it be? In Russia, this unit is called "Cheesecake"

Great project. My mind is racing with other project ideas that would work well with this double sided, thicker design (picnic pad, beach mat, pet furniture cushion protector, place mat, or bowls & baskets (may or may not need to add layer of stabilizer inside each block, in addition to batting). hmmm.. here I go again. Thank you for sharing your project and links to the pattern and tools. I bookmarked all of it and I'm looking forward to your weekly updates.

What a fun project. What kind of batting are you using and are they cut the same size?

Hi JoJo,
I am using warm 'n natural cotton batting cut to the same size as the circles. It is very thin and works well for this technique.
