I was pleased to see orange as the color for September in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I had already looked through my stash of scraps cut into units I want. I found a few orange but had to raid my stash for larger pieces to cut some strips for more orange. I made 2 orange wonky star blocks with 4 ½” squares
and 2 blocks with orange 2 ½ by 4 ½” bricks.I am looking forward to having a nice collection of rainbow blocks for some rainbow comfort quilts.
Playing with orange was a nice distraction since I have not been interested in sandwiching a UFO for quilting. I have worked on a couple of projects, not focusing on one. I made more low volume blocks, enough for a small lap quilt. I plan to add a breaker border and then a scrappy pieced border so it will finish at 48” by 60”.
I also added the red border on this improvisational star inspired by one I saw on “Sewing with Nancy” a year or more ago.I want to add another pieced border of white and dark blue. I am still deciding what I want. I would be interested in suggestions or ideas.
Enjoy the Labor Day holiday weekend and hope you find some sewing or quilting time.
