Baby Adelia

This is my Baby Adelia orange peel quilt, inspired by Kathleen Tracy's Remembering Adelia. It's hand pieced and hand quilted, and measures 12" square. I love this new addition to my mini wall.

I love the texture of the quilting from the back.

I lasted four days on holidays without stitching, a personal best really. This is where I have been sitting sewing by the window of an afternoon.

We are going snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef tomorrow......I think it will be a highlight of our trip.
