Oh Scrap! : Happy Orange Blocks

I was so happy to hear that orange was going to be the RSC color for February.  Purple is my favorite color but orange is a close second.
So I couldn't wait to get started on my blocks for the month.

The first block I worked on were these fun rail fence variations.  In making them I discovered all my oranges were either very light or very dark.  I don't have very many scraps in medium tones.  But I still love the three blocks I was able to complete.

I put them up on the wall with my red and green blocks.  I think this is going to be a colorful and happy quilt once I get a rainbow of blocks completed.  My plan is to have a 5x6 setting so I should finish it up in October of this year!

I am hoping to find some more time this weekend to sew with orange - it makes me happy!

It will be a very happy quilt - those colors and they way the go from light to dark ( or the opposite) give it such moderness!!

I really like those rails. What size are the blocks? I had more orange than I realized, and I really enjoyed working with it!

Nann said...

It's always great fun -- and inspiration -- to see how everyone uses the monthly RSC color. Your rails are a great idea.

Your rail blocks are looking so good together. I tend to have way more medium values in my stash and lack darks.

Bonnie said...

Definitely like your rails. I'm still hunting for the perfect block. Maybe this week I'll have enough time to do some serious blog reading and get some good ideas.

Nice work on those ORANGE scrappy blocks!!

Preeti said...

The colors of your blocks are so juicy. They remind me of drinks like red wine, mojito, screwdriver and grasshopper. I am sure they will make a yummy quilt.

Here's the bad thing of going to see what others are working on.......I see an idea that I really like and want to start yet something else new!
I love the idea of the rail fence in 4 patches with the colors!
