RSC14 -- ORANGE!!!

I just love ORANGE in quilts!  The good news is that I love it.  The bad news is that I don't have very many large pieces of orange. Here's a sample of some of my tiny orange pieces in this Picadilly Circle block.  Some of the fabrics used I only had enough for one little wedge of orange and it was gone.  But at least I had enough for this one!



 I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrapy: ScrapHappy blog. for the the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, 2014.

  1. Glad you found enough orange for your wedges. They look look fabulous against the black.

  3. Oh! What a happy combination of orange. That Piccadilly Circle block is such a good one for RSC. It clears quite a few little bits from the stash.

    1. I just love using the last little bits. Waste not, want not! I just love how those little scraps seem to multiply overnight.

  5. Oh that orange looks great with black, what a block! You have inspired me to go the sewing room this afternoon and work on my pickle dishes! How are your chickens?

    1. Since I got rid of the three sickly "Craigslist" chickens, my original flock of 17 have been doing great. Yesterday I got a record 14 eggs! Whohoo! I just love those chickens.
