Oh Scrap! : RSC Bowties

A new month signals it is time to start working on a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge color. 
September is orange - and I have lots of scraps to choose from.

I thought I would start out by sewing up my bowtie blocks for the month.  In no time at all, I had 6 eight inch blocks completed.  I am using my Kaffe Fassett scraps for this one and had no problems coming up with some pretty oranges.

I added them to a few of the blue test blocks I made a few months back. 
I think I am going to really like this one!


Now it is time for you to share your scrap projects.  Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

    Quilting is more fun than Housework

    Behind red, orange is my favorite color....and I really like the Bow Ties. Love your blog -- a fellow scrappy girl.

    Your bow ties look great in the oranges! I'm excited to add some orange to mine, too. Have a great Sunday!

    Those are some pretty oranges. They look great with the blues.

    Your RSC Bowties in ORANGE are AWESOME!! I think I'm going to like this quilt. too. Enough negative space and small enough pieces to tame the Kaffe a bit.

    Loving those bowties! I'm working on one too called God's Green Earth, but in predominantly green colours (not surprisingly) and totally enjoying it which is ironic because this block has not always appealed to me. I've been converted!

    Everything's better with orange, right? I really like how the new ones look with the blue ones, too. You've got another beauty in progress!

    One of my favorite quilt blocks! That's not a color I have much of, orange.

    Karen's Korner said...

    Those pretty blocks are blending well together.

    Linda said...

    Love the way your bow tie blocks are fitting together.

    Love your Bow Ties, what size are the blocks Cynthia?

    a good yarn said...

    That's a nice block to showcase the Kaffe Fasset scraps.

    Kate said...

    Your Bowtie blocks are going to make a very fun quilt. That's a block that has long been on my "to make" list. Maybe next year?
