Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 - Still basking in an orange glow


This month Angela at Soscrappy is giving sampler blocks to be made in orange for the Rainbow Scrap Sampler quilt. These are 6" sampler blocks, surrounded by a Sawtooth Star, and in the final quilt separated by an Irish Chain type of block echoing the colours of the adjacent Sawtooth Star blocks.

This is the star I made this week:

Twirling 4-patch in a sawtooth star
I also made a few orange 9-patches with my smallest scraps - they finish at 3".


I'm sure I had three, but one must have slipped under the sewing machine cabinet!

This week I shall try to make the third orange star (which Angela posted earlier this week), and the orange and red alternate blocks.

I made little progress in assembling my maple leaves quilt, but I just have to sew one long seam to connect the last two rows. Then I can move onto the quilting.

I'm linking up with

Happy sewing

Pretty colours in your orange block for this week Marly. Love that you have a perfect colour match with the nasturtium. That is what it is, isn't it?

they're so tiny you probably sneezed and it flew away

Still loving the orange and blue. I also adore the whimsy of the little boys, running in a few of the squares. Nice touch.

I just love how your orange blocks look with that blue background. Your quilt is going to be an absolute knockout!
I really like the block center that Angela gave for that star. I'm thinking it might be a fun little block to make for next year's RSC...

I love how the children in the orange print add to the movement of the pinwheel!

I really like your background fabric on your rainbow scraps. It's a beautiful block.
