This is my entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival . I was so inspired by all the wonderful quilts on display, I know I'm going to have lots of fun reading over the next few days.
This is a quilt that I finished just as I began my blog in January. A friend gave me the pattern for this quilt back in 1996, I think. It is a Karen K. Stone pattern called Indian Orange Peel. I kept putting the pattern aside as it looked just too complicated. Finally I felt I should try it before I was too old to comprehend the directions.

I started the quilt in late November and was finished with the top before Christmas in 2009. It took another year for the courage to quilt it. All in all the worst thing about making the quilt was cutting out around all the paper piecing patterns. And the best thing is that now I have a fall quilt to hang in the dining room.
A friend sent these pictures today - They show the colors more accurately. Sometimes the editing program I use makes the colors kinda funky. Thanks Connie!
