Orange Scrap Saturday


I have been working on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013 this past week. We are using our Orange scraps for the month of March. To see what other quilters are doing with orange scraps go take a look at Soscrappy.

I first have my sprout blocks done. So far I have been doing five of each of the colours. I am not sure how big this quilt will be or how many blocks I will make. You can find the pattern for the Sprout block.


I did some flying geese this week. They measure 2" by 3 1/2" and will finish to 1 1/2" by 3" when sewn in. I think I could always use some on a boarder or to joint blocks together. We will just see what comes. 


We did Orange last Sept 2012, so I have already done many spools. I found two more orange fabrics to do.  I am trying to do the spool quilt like a charm quilt were the fabrics are not repeated.

I have a dog trial on Sunday. Wish us luck. I hope the roads are not to bad in the morning. We have blowing snow here and there.

  1. I love what you've been doing. I just finished a small quilt with some of my orange blocks from last year.

  7. I am looking forward to seeing how your sprouts look in a quilt. They do look lovely. A great idea to sew up some blocks like the flying geese to use in a border or sashing. I must make some more blocks for last years challenge too. Good luck at the dog trial today.
