Scrap Saturday Last of the Orange
The last Scrap Saturday to show off our Orange scrap blocks. I saw some Halloween project in the works and got dreaming of pumpkins. Better then dreaming of food - started a diet and was dreaming of white bread and butter the night before. Besides all the orange scraps, it is making a bigger dent in the purple scrap box.
I got started on the pumpkins today and got two blocks complete and a start on three more. Not sure what they will become. Maybe a wall quilt or runner. At this stage they are about 10" square. The orange strip set in the middle started as a 6 1/2" square.
I also got working on something new. I see others making blocks of 4 patches or 16 patches and I thought I would make some 16 patches but I have added in one little twist. Each block has one square that is a contracting colour. In the case of Orange it got a blue or purple square. These are made up of 2" squares and now measure 6 1/2" square. We will see how I use these.
Go to Soscrappy to see more about Scarppy Saturday and all the other Orange happening. I wounder what colour we will get next month. I could do Black or black and other colours mixed in. Brown could happen too. Three month left and all my favorite colours have been used up.
I also needed some Orange wonky log cabins. One full orange and two that had a dark purple side too. You just wait till the end of the year and I have to put the log cabins together.
Here are new Orange spools that I worked on today as Leaders and Enders. I also have a stack from early in the month.
I have signed up for Blogoberfest 2012. I have added the button to the right side. I am to blog every day in the month of October, and share my creative sprite I think I will host a give a way. I will have to think about what I will give away. Maybe some dyed fabric.
