August in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I never knew I would love sewing with orange until I joined in with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge a few years ago!  I didn't have many orange scraps until just recently, after purposely adding some orange fat quarters to my stash a few at a time. 

That being said, I had to look back at all my August posts to see what I sewed in orange this month!

I made a few more orange bowties to help in finishing up my bowtie quilt top.

I also added to my rainbow WiPs - Squared Away, Scrappy Sprouts, and Tiny Rails.

And then I remembered that I hadn't pulled out my Floral Sawtooth Stars blocks in awhile.  There isn't any red in the fat quarter bundle of Bloom and Blush that I'm using for this project, so I didn't play with these July.  But there is lots of orange, especially this piece, which is one of my favorites - 

I like the little orange flowers, but also the subtle orange background!

So, one more Sawtooth Star has been added to the collection!

Cheers to orange - hope you've enjoyed an August in orange, too!  

Linking up with SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!

orange is one color I do not have much of - I would have to look and see if I am low on others too!

You've made some very fun and pretty blocks. I don't sew much with orange, but it's a nice bright accent. Hopefully my blocks will get done tonight so I can share them in the morning.

Love the orange, and that Blush & Bloom is gorgeous! All your blocks are really pretty.

I have a lot more orange in my stash than I ever remember buying - every time I look at it I think wow, when did I get all that!

Louise said...

Oo, the B&B floral is so pretty! It looks great as a sawtooth center. I hope we see more of that fabric :)

That floral fabric is so sweet. I had only 2 small scraps of orange for the RSC August. I'm finally catching up and hope to be current this weekend. Evidently, I don't sew orange very much. I did find some FQ's to cut up some scraps. Sad, I know. All of your blocks are coming along nicely.

Mari said...

All your blocks look great! I'm really looking forward to the finished sprouts top.

Beautiful orange blocks, and this floral print is lovely!

I think I am done with my orange blocks for the month. It was nice you discovered another project to fill the void this week. I just hope I get through the week without starting something new :)

Angie said...

Seeing all your orange blocks makes me sorry I didn't have more orange projects myself this month! The Floral Sawtooth Stars are looking great!

I love those Floral Sawtooth Stars. Will we see some smaller ones in the future for a border? I see a stray!

Oh, I thought I’d commented on this earlier.... so sorry! I’m glad that you’re loving orange - it’s such a happy color. And those sawtooth stars are so yummy!! That’s a cute fabric line, but I really love your orange scraps!!
