This week I wanted to work on some Split 9 Patch blocks in orange, but I wasn't sure I had enough variety of orange scraps for them. Hunting around in my stash, I found this Halloween stripe and wondered if it read orange enough to be usable.
Figuring that I really had nothing to lose - this is a scrappy quilt after all - I decided to use a few pieces of the stripe in a couple of Split 9s. Here's how they turned out!
The great thing about these blocks is how they look all together as a group. I think this will work!
My other accomplishment is house #6 for the Rainbow Neighbourhood QAL. This is the Rainy Day house! I found just enough of the fun raindrop print and *made it work* for the sky (sometimes it does rain sideways here!) and some cats to look out the door and windows (it was raining cats, and possibly dogs, lol)!
Although this block is mainly turquoise and teal,
there are a few little bits of orange here and there!
It's been a good sewing week here! Sharing at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday and at Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
