RSC 15: Scrappy Brown + Orange

As I was putting away the orange scraps from last month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color, I came across a bag full of 2" orange squares left over from another project.  They were bugging me to get used, so I started playing with a combination of brown and orange 2" squares. 
 With a little inspiration from the current issue of Quiltmania, I got this pinned to my design wall.  I still need to make the horizontal sashing, but I'm happy with it so far.  And all of it is from scraps!

I got last week's Sawtooth Star blocks finished, too.  I'm going to go back through the brown scraps and see what else I can find that will lend itself to some more of these 4" stars.  

I'm off to visit my mom and sisters in Florida for the weekend.  I didn't have a hand applique project at the ready to take with me, so I pinned up a small applique wall hanging and will try to do some hand quilting during the quiet hours.  I usually try to do some antiquing when I visit Mom, but maybe this time I'll succumb to the siren song of one of the nearby quilt stores.  

If I can get my iPad blogging program to work, I'll be linking up with Angela's RSC linky party on Saturday.  Hope everyone enjoys their brown scrappy stitching this week!
