Seven more arcs done

I haven't had as much time for sewing lately. These 7 arcs took 3 evenings to complete! On the first night, I cut 2" strips of all my fabrics and put them into a warm pile and a cool pile. The second evening, I started piecing the arcs and got them about 2/3 finished. Tonight, I finished them off and trimmed them. We have been very busy lately but this weekend we are home and don't have too many commitments (besides hosting dinner for 15 friends tomorrow night--it's not as bad as it sounds--I just have to provide the main course and everyone else is bringing the rest of the food. I am making jambalaya.) I hope to get some more arcs done this weekend. I must, actually, or I will never get 120 done by the time our second Indian Orange Peel class in mid March!

I am loving how the colours of the batiks play with each other in these arcs. I am off to relax now. My husband just made me a cup of herbal tea.


  1. They are gorgeous

    love and hugs Gina xxx

  2. Great looking arcs! They really are fun to make eh? I'm working away at another 6..figured I was supposed to be gone shopping, so might as well do something fun to make up for the disappointment of not being able to shop at the quilt store LOL. I did vacuum my whole sewing room already so it looks good!

  3. These look great! You have all your cutting done?!?
    I really have to get going to catch up to you guys! I have some time tomorrow...I'll be arcing!
