The quilt pattern for this quilt is known by some as the orange peel block and by others as a melon patch seed block. By either name it makes a delightful quilt. The appliqued flowers in the sashing make the overall quilt very appealing and fun to make. Rather than curved piecing, this quilt is made totally by applique and makes up quickly. I used a needle turn method for the sample, but all other applique methods would work as well. This quilt was featured in the book Stars VIII published by Kansas City Star Quilts.
