The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for the month of September is orange! I've been looking forward to indulging in the use of this cheerful color. I have what I consider to be a lot of orange in my stash. It has been surprising therefore, that I don't seem to have many remnants (or scraps) in that color. I guess I just haven't dipped into it to any degree. I think there's some hesitation in that I want to use what I have in a "special" way. You know, a quilt that really showcases orange in all its' glory. So far I have not come up with a plan for such a quilt. Maybe that will come as the month unfolds.
One of the first scraps I pulled out was an old Patrick Lose plaid. I have always loved his use of color and whimsy. There wasn't enough left to make a 12" Ohio Star, which is my primary block for the RSC this year. However, I did manage to cut triangles big enough for the 10" Wrench blocks I'm setting into the delightful scattered dots print I found early in the year.
Then I made a 6" Shoo-fly in reverse:
And squeaked out quarter-square triangles for a variation on a 9" Ohio Star:
Next up was another orange plaid. There was plenty for my 12" Ohio Star...
And it may show up in other, smaller blocks in future.
I have one more block to share with you. It truly speaks to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge as it was made from the leftovers of the Color Wheel block I made for the Foot Square Freestyle swap (see previous post).
Is that fun or what?!
