I live with 3 little kids so I would like to tell you a joke that is regularly told around our house...
Orange you glad I didn't say banana?
For my block, I would like an orange peel block. I would like my block to have summer colors- think citrus,aqua, purples, greens. For the background, I would love for you to use several different black on white prints, if you don't have a four different ones, it is fine to use the same for each background. I would really like for the peels to each be a different fabric. Here is my Pinterest board for some inspiration.
I am going to link to two blogs that have the tutorial, but I would like for the block to finish at 16"(16 1/2" unfinished). Please use the measurements and templates that I have listed below:
(4) 8.5" squares of white fabric with a black print
(4) 'peels' using the template + seam allowance- each a different color fabric(print or solid)
(4) 'peels' using the template + seam allowance- made of fusible interfacing
It was really helpful when I made mine to draw a corner a 1/4" from the edge so that I could make sure the peel was in just the right spot as there is only a 1/4" seam allowance. I also pressed my seams open.
'Peel' Template- Make sure to check that it is printing at the correct size by measuring the 1" box
