Orange Peel Purse

The “Piecemaker”, “Scrappy Quilter” and “Sew Fly” Lap Quilt group is tackling the “Orange Peel Purse” called “Mini-Peel Cross Body Bag” by Becky McDaniel on Esty.  The 3 groups will be breaking the construction of the purse down to more simplified lessons and the process will be spaced over the next few months. We will be discovering the orange peel applique design, piping, zipper insertion, channel quilting and more as we make the purse. I hope everyone will have a great addition to their wardrobe when they are through constructing the over the shoulder bag. I made my bag from the scraps and supplies in my stash.  Below are pictures of my construction progress.

If you want to make an Orange Peel Purse be prepared for at least 3 lessons. The lessons can be once a month or once a week, depending on what you decide on in “one on one” lessons.

If you would like to join out quilt group I have openings in the 3rd Thursday afternoon of the month. Time is 2-4pm. Learn the basics of quilting, making templates and piecing and quilt blocks. Here is a link to enroll or you can email me at: Hope to see you in class.
