Indian Orange Peel Night in Canada......

We got together with six of us to work on our Indian Orange Peel homework on Tuesday evening. Now I don't know what to call our evening anymore....QNIC (Quilting Night in Canada) or PNIC (Peeling Night in Canada) or IOPNIC LOL. In any case, we did peel and got a few things done :-).

My treadle got a workout while I was sewing 8 arcs simultaneously:

Pat picked up this wonderful storage bin at the Bibles for Missions thrift shop on Tuesday. They are meant for storing Christmas decorations. There are two sets of two, but they snap onto each other....perfect for this project for taking along!

Pat and Gail busy sewing and cutting:

Deb's first arc that she did at the class:

Deb ironing fabrics for her four patches:

This project requires thinking!! Christine and Deb are contemplating something :-)

Christine's accomplishments of the evening:

You need to be well organized with this project and remain organized as well!

Chris and Pat choosing fabrics for four patches:

Is this a warm colour or a cool colour?

We had four ironing stations set up and didn't blow any breakers!!

The arcs I worked on on Tuesday evening and completed this morning. Yikes, is that a warm background AND warm points arc I see on right side?

Did four more this evening, so I'm up to 20 altogether now. Next batch and I'll have less than 100 to go :-)

I'm envious of your QNIC get-togethers. It looks like so much fun. I can't wait to see your finished quilts.
