    Orange slices

    This is from a tutorial on MSQC called orange slices. I only used stash fabric (knew I would use orange one day) I only had to purchase fusible interfacing. I plan on quilting it myself. I am at the point of contemplating possible backings and have already denied two possible fabrics. Since there is so much color and movement, I'm leaning towards unbleached muslin and a turquoise binding for some pop. I will post the completed project when done

    I love it. Not usually a fan of orange but it works we. Make sure you audition the binding before cutting and sewing. Also try deep purple, navy blue or brown. I am sure whatever you choose will be stunning.

    Love this! One of my favorite patterns, I've made a couple orange slices mini quilts. I think turquoise binding would be perfect

    This is going to be a beautiful quilt. All ready it is so pretty. I can't wait to see this finished. Whatever color you choose for the binding is going to be great I think.

    Since we can see some of these colors in some of the slices, I'm with cjsews. Would make it pop and bring those colors out a bit.

    Love it! In the past orange wasn't one of my favorite colors, but I'm liking it more and more lately.

    I book-marked that tutorial because it looked like fun. I like the stitch you chose to embroider the slices. The right turquoise would make it pop. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    I think your choice for binding is just great. That choice will make a really fun and happy quilt. Audition it first to see if you really love it.
