Orange Creamsicle {WiP}

I have a few active projects at the moment but I think I am most excited about this one, “Orangle Creamsicle”.

I really needed a project over the summer, which did not bind me to my sewing machine. I needed a hand sewing project but I did not want to do an EPP project, as I already have one on my WiP pile.

Remember this reject block from Sunday Best? Well, this block was saying to me it needs its own quilt to belong to. I decided that I would experiment and see if I could hand stitch improv blocks. Yes, the actual piecing by hand.

The limits/boundaries I currently using for this improv quilt are:

  • Hand stitched blocks
  • Mostly orange with additions of red, pink, and yellows.
  • Accent pieces (filler) can include aqua (which makes everything pop more).
  • While the seams seem to be matching so far in the middle, I am open with accepting the blocks centers and row seams to match – let it naturally fit together.
  • Blocks are approx. 12″

I am really enjoying this project and the process. I am about a quarter of the way through and excited to see how it turns out. What hand sewing projects do you have at the moment??

    What a great project ! I’m looking forward to seeing the final result. I love hand stitching and I’m sewing circles for my Quilty 365 project at the moment.

    I really love these colors and the free form shapes. Do you have any hints for making it all fit together and lay flat?
