Orange Scraptastic Stars

It seems like I am ahead of schedule on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects this month. Most months it takes me until the last week to finish all of my blocks, but the August blocks are all complete! Today's selection is my Scraptastic Stars in orange. Up first, here is the 12" block.


And here is the 16" block. I love the light fabric--it's a subway map! (I had to Google it to figure out that it is from the Gramercy collection by Leah Duncan for Art Gallery Fabrics.) I got it at Gotham Quilts when I was in New York for work a few months ago.


I had already made two blocks in browns last fall when I was trying out this block pattern. Here is the whole autumn-looking group!


The Scraptastic Stars pattern was designed by Melissa Corry for the Aurifil Block of the Month in 2017. You can find the pattern at Melissa's website, Happy Quilting. BTW, Melissa also has her own quilt-along going on right now, the Seeing Stars QAL. The first block was posted on Wednesday. I'm trying to resist, but might have to join in on this one.

I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on SundayBe sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
