Thinking Orange

This month's color For RSC16 is orange, as many of you probably already know. 
I love going to Soscrappy's blog and seeing all the wonder projects others are doing. Which is what I am going to do after I'm done posting this.

I haven't started mine yet but I do have a couple choices to pick from.

all things simple: shauna's quilt. 8 X 8 " blocks; jelly roll strips with 1.5" sashing. Border is 4".:

The first is a basic strip block set with a sashing. Like this one I've found on pinterest.

 something similar to the Four Winds Quilt pattern offered by Fancy Tiger Crafts

Their quilt here is made for a queen size bed but I like the layout and I'm making a baby quilt so it will be different of course. This would make a great bed quilt.

I have a good stash of orange to pick from and would love to made a good dent in it.
Now over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict she is helping others with their scrap problem, like herself. So between Soscrappy and her, maybe I can make some progress on my scrap problem. 

I had made this baby quilt a few years back and like so many I have, needs to be quilted.

Well that's it for now, hope to have something completed by next Saturday to show.

Till then


  1. There is some impressive looking orange fabric scraps there. I am keen to see what you can complete in a week.

  2. You have a nice selection of oranges to work with; I'm not doing the RSC this year as I am into making my grandchildren each a big lap quilt as they will all soon be going off to college...I have the eldest one's--Steven--done and am beginning my granddaughter Cassidy's now...one quilt at a time is my New Year's sewing resolution for 2016...no hurry, no scurry...hugs, Julierose

  3. Good luck choosing what exactly to do with all that fabulous orange fabric! You've certainly got a lot to choose from.

  4. I think either of your inspiration quilts would be fun. I partucularly like the Four Winds quilt. Such a fun arrangement of the flying geese. I think it would translate easily to a crib size. Can't wait to which direction you go!

  5. LOVE that Four Winds pattern, but was surprised to find that it was a bed quilt! Good luck with altering the pattern for your needs.

  6. I really like the Four Winds pattern. Looking forward to seeing what pattern you picked to tame your orange scraps.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
