Scrap Happy Saturday: More Orange Frolics!

Dear Husband had to work this weekend, so no trip to the camp.  On the other hand, that meant I could immerse myself in sewing to my heart's content.  Today that meant more orange scrappy play!
First, I finished up the Scrap Jar Stars I started last weekend.  For some reason, these blocks just make me happy - in any color!  I think I will continue to make them as an on-going scrap busting project.
I also added a Maverick Star to this month's batch, made with darker orange scraps.
The design wall was empty, so I arranged all the scrappy Maverick Stars to date.  I'm thinking these need another block between them, maybe something string-pieced.  These are only 6" blocks, so there's definitely room for more.
  
This month's Carpenter's Wheel was a joy to make!  

I also pinned up the scrappy Carpenter's Wheel blocks thus far.  These blocks measure 16".  I'm only now starting to have glimmers of ideas for how I'd like to set these.  I like the idea of 9 blocks, but I'm not sure what color the last block will be.  Time and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge will tell!

Linking up with all the other Rainbow Scrap quilters over at Angela's SoScrappy blog - lots more lovely orange on view there!
