Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Orange
Garden Fence Extra Blocks
Orange is such a strong colour and very often you either love it or hate it - I love it! I have been going through a bit of an orange phase while making my Garden Fence quilt and I couldn't be happier about it. I love this quilt!!! When I started working on it I made many, many blocks and I thought they would all go into the quilt. Once I started piecing it all together, I decided that it was just too big for me to handle so I set a few (10 blocks) aside thinking that maybe I would make another quilt for me??!!
Garden Fence Scraps
So I optimistically set the leftover bits of fabric aside hoping that the colour orange would come up in the Scrap Challenge and - yippee - it has. So my plan is to make another quilt very similar (let's call it a sister quilt) to the Garden Fence quilt. I know it sounds kinda been there, done that....but the first quilt will be leaving me and going to live at some else's home. I am sooooo excited!! Hop on over to soscrappy's blog and see what everyone else is working on.
