All the Oranges

It has happened the same way each month this year.  Angela announces the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I go on a treasure hunt.  What fabric have I got that I can make my blocks out of?  Is it orange or too red?  Is this one really orange or more yellow?  Look at those adorable orange buttons! Decisions, decisions!

                            

And then I google "shades of orange" and find this...


Who knew there were so many oranges!  So, I can use them all!  And with such fun results.


I love how my first Scrap Jar Star turned out - it reminds me of orange creamsicles or Cuties, the tasty little oranges that I eat all winter.


And in my stash, I found the perfect low volume fabric to go with an orange 16 patch - candy corn!  (And we all thought brown with pink was so yummy!)  I'll be using this one again!


So it has been a fun first week of orange, and I still have more blocks to make!  Better get back to work.  I'll be linking up with Angela over at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.  See you there!

  4. Your blocks look great! I don't have a lot of bright orange but seeing all the shades you have found is an inspiration because I do have orange variations :)

  14. You've got some great oranges there; my supply is probably of if not the lowest in quantity in my stash. However it was fun to pull for one of my two RSC projects. That low volume candy corn you've got is just so perfect!
