I am building arcs......

No, I am not expecting a flood of biblical proportions I am making arcs not arks. But, we may need an ark next week, a warm spell (we are talking 5-7 degrees C above zero) and rain is predicted, so our snow will start melting.


I mentioned previously myself, along with a number of my guild quilters are making the Indian Orange Peel quilt. I have 69 completed, the ones on the left are the warm coloured arcs and cool coloured points, on the right cool arcs and warm points.















The coloures look a bit washed out because of the flash.

These are incredibly challenging, good for you, Patricia! Are you making these with Gail (the Cozy Quilter) and her group? I hadn't linked you and her together in my mind, but she is working on these too...

They look very complicated and it will be so exciting to see the finished product.

The orange peel quilt would be very challenging for me. Good on you for taking it on! Looks good.

I remember making those. You might just inspire me to pull mine back out and get it finished. It is so much work. Lane

Great progress Pat! I'm still at my 97 which I finished just after the retreat. Hope to prepare a few more today sometime. I have Tuesday night free...maybe we can get together and work on arcs again :-)
