Orange You Scrap Happy?

Today is an opportunity for me to link up with both the RSC and Scrap Happy Day with Kate and Gun. I thought I might have done something with more of the scraps from my liberated medallion effort but that hasn't been the case. I got tired of those dark tones so I pulled out some oranges for the RSC palette this month.


I also pulled out my orange Ohio Stars from last year. I'd started making stepping stone blocks to go with them but I knew I needed more. Before I could think about making anything for this project a new postage stamp star crept in to the mix.


I only made two more stepping stone blocks but what a difference in the overall appearance!


I have to decide how big I want this to get. I'm not enjoying the stepping stone block construction a whole lot. This may very well become the center of a new medallion quilt. Maybe I can get more stepping stones made if I branch out and make other blocks in orange on white...

I'm linking up with both the Rainbow Scrap Challenge bloggers and those playing along with Kate and Gun for Scrap Happy Day.

Now I have to hurry up and write a post for tomorrow's Stitch Along  post. We lost our power yesterday when the first arm of the disintegrating typhoon hit us. The second front is supposed to be even stronger so we 're in Preparation Mode!

looking great, and those fabrics are wonderful together, maybe it is scrappy, but looks very co-ordinated to me. Yes, the extra blocks fit in so well and make a huge difference. This will be a real stunner when all done.

That's so fresh and pretty! Orange and white is a lovely alternative to red and white – are we seeing the birth of a new monochrome quilt...?

Orange is definitely a fun and bright color to sew with! It lifts my spirits, for sure! I like the stepping stone blocks you're using with your stars. They give that quilt a lot of movement.

Beautiful stars! I love all of them. Hope you were not washed away. This storm caused a lot of water damage in a lot of places.

As wonderful as your scrap projects always are! I am not normally a fan of orange, but I'm liking your orange blocks and the quilt.

The bigger it gets, the better it looks. Go for a great finish.

Lovely stars Sue. The orange and white is a great combination. You're doing well with your RSC, I'm way behind, but since there's no more colours after this month, maybe I'll do some catching up.

Love those Stepping Stone blocks! Whether you keep going with the pattern as you've shown, or switch to a medallion style setting - it's going to be great!
