Don’t know how that happened, great minds or coincidence, probably both.
Country Surprise by Nancy Mahoney.
Nancy is a very prolific designer. She is a Bernina ambassador, has done several books on paper piecing, is published in magazines, teaches online and on cruises.
The subheading of the book is 13 remarkable quilts with Timeless Appeal, so I planned on making a classic orange peel design. To be quite honest I was not happy with how my points on the applique lined up, so I decided to add some sashing. I loved how it turned out. What could have been a big mess-up actually made me do some creative thinking and design a completely different quilt?

I love everything that Camille Roskelley of Thimbleblossoms creates and
this is another quilt that is added to
my never-ending MUST MAKE list.
