Orange Scrappiness

I have been making good progress with my orange scrappy projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week. I finished all of my 6" LeMoyne Star blocks and have the pieces cut for a 12" block.



I might be ready to start joining these stars together into quilts soon. I haven't decided yet if I want to include brown and black/grey stars or just stick to the bright colors. It's time to put a batch of stars up on the design wall and see how they look together.

I also finished my first orange hexie snowflake this week and have started on my hexie star. The hexies have been getting lots of questions while I stitch on the train to work each morning.




Check out this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge posts--lots of amazingly beautiful rainbow projects to inspire you! I am also linking up to Hexie Weekend at A Quilting Reader's Garden, to the Monday Morning Star Count at Life Under Quilts, and to the Hexie Linky Party (HeLP) at Sarah Did It!.

  3. I am looking forward to you quilt top! Wouldn't it be neat if your stitching on the train would inspire even one to give this a try!

  4. Oh, I guess I thought all these months that your LeMoyne Stars were 12 inch. The smaller size makes them even more spectacular since there will be more of them in a quilt.

    Oh, and those snowflakes are awesome. I love the color of oranges you used.

  10. Love the orange stars. I've done it but now hesitate to make brown stars. I'm okay with black on white and white on black prints for stars.
