Angela has given us orange as the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour for April.
Last week I showed orange and black HSTs that I'd made as leaders and enders while making 1930's Farmer's wife blocks. This week, however, I haven't been using orange in my leaders and enders, but making black and white HSTs.
Then I put them together in a 16-patch bear paw.
An interesting discovery was finding it easier to get a good square result when I first joined the squares and HSTs into 4-patches, rather than in four rows of four. I find it easier to trim a square than a long row.
I wrote the above while waiting at the hairdresser's this morning where I was surrounded by orange:
