Orange peel quilt-along - background fabrics

I've been really struggling not to race ahead with this quilt-along. I'm so excited to get making those gorgeous peels!! 
Orange Peel Quilt-Along!
But I'm determined to do it in the right order!! So I'm linking up today with my (mostly) cut background fabrics.
I cut all the low volume fabrics that I had pulled from my stash into 6" squares. That gave me 89 squares. I haven't really decided how big to make my quilt but I think I'm aiming for the lap size which means I need 144 squares. I picked up 3 new low volume FQs while I was at my local fabric shop (LOVE those little pink roses!!) and when they are cut I will have 116. So I just need to buy 3 more FQs and I will have enough! I really thought I would need to buy loads more fabric, so my purse is very happy!!

Right, I'm off to link up with Julie and see what the other lovely quilt-alongers have been up to!



  1. Loving the fabrics! Can't wait to see the finished product! 😀

  2. I am quilt cutting too. I have loved poking round your blog and have linked in because I want to follow your progress. I think you would like mine too. Jo x
