RSC14 - 9/6/14

Soscrppy

I find Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge another great inspiration to use those scrap fabrics up.  This month's color was Orange - a color I really don't like to work with, but I like a challenge.


As much as I love scrap play, I want to dump those baggies or totes, use it up, and be done/clean up/move on.  So I have a tendancy to do all my blocks in one day rather than spread out thru the month.

 

These are the last three blocks for the Marcus Brothers QAL - skinny button on my side bar for the schedule is you still want to play.  Does cheddar read as an orange or a yellow to you?


And as long as the orange was out, I pulled some for the pumpkins in my Let's Book It project.  Yes, I found some purple for those HSTs and the one is a close match to the pattern in the figurine's shirt.

Please go VISIT and see what oranges everyone has in their stash to play with.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. Sharon, your orange blocks caught my eye immediately - such vibrant blocks!!!! And yes, cheddar reads as an orange to me usually, but it sometimes depends on the other fabrics in the mix. I love the inspiration from your blog this morning!!!!

  8. What a great variety of blocks you have going. Cheddar reads as orange to me.

    I'm not an orange person either; however, I have found that this year I have waaay more orange scraps than last.

  9. For someone who doesn't like orange you have an incredible variety of scraps. As always I just love those little garlic knots. Glad to see you have another orange project in the works for the month of September.
    I see Cheddar as orange.

  15. I agree with you. Take out the fabrics you need, make the blocks and clean it up. All your blocks look great. I think cheddar is a hard color. For me it leans more to the orange than yellow.

  21. Oh boy do I love those orange blocks! I know how you feel about using all the scraps up to be done with them. As the year grows longer, I feel like I want to join in RCS again so I can catch up and use all those scraps! Can't wait to see your book it project done, the only thing better than orange is putting it together with purple!!
