Oh Scrap! : Orange

Time for a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge color.
May is Orange - one of my favorites!

Sadly, most of my RSC projects already have plenty of orange blocks.  I did sew up three orange blocks for my scrappy color block project.

I have a total of nine blocks now.  My plan is to make three of each color so I end up with a colorful lap donation quilt.

My quarter log RSC project is getting close to being done.  I decided to go back and make another gold and green block.

I think I just need 5 more blocks.  My plan is to make some in purple (will I get lucky in June?) and then determine what else it needs.  I might try and work in some warm browns but I will make that decision once I decide on a final layout.

My Rainbow Scrap Challenge design wall looks so pretty right now.  It is behind my longarm so this is my view as I work each day.  Lucky me!

Even though my RSC blocks are already done for May, I have lots of other scrappy plans for the month.  I am in the mood for starting new things!


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  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!

Your quarter logs look terrific, especially on the black background. How large are they, the whole block and a little squares?

Such pretty RSC projects! I'm really hoping to whittle down the UFO list so I can start tackling some of my own scrap bins.

Fun to get a peek at your design wall! I love how the quarter log cabins are looking. Have I said this before - they remind me of bandannas?! :)

Your scrappy blocks are so perfect, Cynthia. They do look like a rainbow! And how generous to use it for a donation quilt.
