Orange Peel memory quilt
I love this quilt design for memory quilt using baby girl clothing! Each appliqued circle is 8” inches in diameter. Clothing is raw edge appliqued on to either a bright white or off-white kona quilting cotton. The raw edge applique technique exposes the unfinished edge of the fabric. When this technique is used with knit fabrics it creates a soft edge along the applique edge. When it is used with woven fabrics the fabric edges will be sewn using zig-zag stitch so that the edges do not fray.
It is quilted with all over meandering pattern. Typically the areas with clothing are minimally quilted or left alone so that they stand out against the quilted sections. We use Quilters Dream 100% cotton batting for its heirloom quality and we think it’s the perfect balance of loft and softness.
The backing material is chosen based on the clothing provided. Dots and small geometric print fabric are our top choice for the backing as they complement the front of the quilt without competing and also have a timeless quality. Custom backing options are available for an additional fee. A Dresden Star quilt for boys, which is similar to the Orange Peel quilt is coming soon.
