Bella Skill Builder ~ Orange Peel

Hi!  Can you believe it is already March?  The year is flying by and I am ready for Spring : )

Today I am sharing the latest block in the Bella Skill Builder hosted by Fat Quarter Shop ~ Orange Peel. 

Fat Quarter Shop has a nifty Orange Peel template which you can find [HERE]  
I chose to do a turned edge appliqué.  No raw edges for me.
I started making my petals by using hand appliqué but then saw these gorgeous petals made by Amy Sinabaldi.
She cuts the petals 3/8" larger than the templates and then carefully irons the seam allowance around the template. You can see her petals and the explanation [HERE]

I am continuing with my pink lemonade palette which has been so fun and refreshing to work with!
So far, my blocks are playing nicely together : )

Be sure to share your block with the hashtag #BellaSkillBuilder !

Happy Sewing
