The Last Orange

It feels so great to be back into the 'norm' of it all - computer and all it's extras finally up and running so play time can continue!  I still have a few quirks to get either used to or learn how to work with.  But made it for all the end of the month updates.  And today is the last Orange Saturday for rainbow blocks.
I did have lots of skinny strips to make up all the blocks needed for the log cabins.  I love how these look and it is going to be fun putting all the rainbow colors together into this quilt.
And the little 'starlet' blocks.  Hey, I had some strange prints in the Sprout blocks, so why not an animal print in a star?  

And I saw this block some where before I went computerless - don't remember where now.  These are 16" blocks - yes, had to make up the purple and pink to go with the orange.  I think this will make a great quilt for my quilt guild charity donation drive next year.

Well the three weakest colors in my stash collection have been pulled for the year - I can't wait to see what next month's color is - I know I will have that color for sure!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Orange looks so happy . I love those log cabin blocks and the stars with the patchy centres are one of my favourite designs. They look great in shades of one colour.
