Orange Scraps Are Very Appealing!

Fabric therapy time has been in short supply the past few weeks.  Happily, I was able to rummage through the orange scraps and put together some blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!

Two orange Sugar Bowl blocks were added to the collection.

I set them together with Sugar Bowl blocks from last year.  The plan is to set the blocks in groups of four like this.

I used some scrappy chunks to make more Ring of Stars blocks.  I'm definitely planning to gift this quilt to a friend when it's finished, but I might have to make one of these for myself!

Bits of this and that got turned into 4-patch blocks.  These go in the Parts Department for now.

One all orange Burgoyne Surrounded block used up a good hunk of scraps.  

I wanted to see how all my Burgoyne colors were balancing out, so they all went for a spin on the design wall.  I still need some pink blocks, more blue blocks, and maybe another purple.  I only need seven more blocks before I can start the assembly process.  The final quilt will have sashing and 9-patch cornerstones (already complete).  

Now that the Rainbow Scrap projects are wrapped up, I'm ready to focus on my Hospital Sketches BOMThis month's block is a challenge, for sure!

  8. I love orange and WOW I must say I love your Burgoyne Surrounded. I have a red white and blue one from years ago that was pieced by a friend and quilted by me when I was just learning to quilt - it's a great pattern. But I've never seen such a colorful version - it's great! It will be interesting to see how it looks with sashing!

  9. Great blocks. I have my trianglulations ready to stitch, but no time to start stitching.

  10. You make the most beautiful blocks for the RSC. I always enjoy these posts.

  11. A great combination of colors. Very nice ideas for the project! It looks amazing! I like to watch such projects.
