Blocks a la Orange

Today is the last Saturday brought to you by the color orange via the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I've made orange versions of all the scrappy orange blocks I've been working on since the beginning of the year, but I'm not finished playing with orange just yet.

Orange 16-patch blocks.  I need to get all the 16-patch blocks and alternate hourglass blocks up on the design wall so I can play with arranging the colors.  

Spool blocks in orange, a la Bonnie Hunter's Spoolin' Around Challenge.  This is a leader-ender project and will continue across the color spectrum as I slice through my stash of 1 1/2 inch strips/scraps.

This project will keep me playing with the color orange for a few more weeks.  I had seen this quilt several months ago and knew it was something I wanted to try.  Using the instructions here, I've been cutting and prepping for this quilt all month.  I finally finished all the prep work and started making blocks last weekend.  I didn't have time to make any more blocks this week, so I'll be working in orange for just a little longer.  I can't wait to see my finished version.  There's just something so appealing about orange and white!

I'll be linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challengers today, so please stop over there for some scrap-happy inspiration!
