|This beautiful sunrise full of promise has turned into a grey, chilly day!|
I've missed the last couple of months of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.....packing and moving house will do that, throw the schedule right off!....and although I missed the first week of April, I managed to haul out the scraps on the weekend. April's colour is orange with a touch of brown....like a jaffa! This was timely, as I still had orange and brown scraps on the table after finishing the March F2F blocks, which were shades of brown, orange and red.
I made these two churn dash blocks...a 6.5 inch and a 9 inch.....these will be added to the blues I made in January, which I'm yet to find, I'm sure they'll turn up before I'm ready to sew these blocks into something.
.....and a handful of scrappy log cabins. These need a few more rounds to finish, then they'll become a quilt for Maya's Rest a respite centre for terminally ill children and their families.
The scraps will take a bit of a backseat this week while I start a quilt for my son's 40th birthday....40!!?? It's this one, it's called Radiant and is a very simple block, but looks complicated and geometric...he'll like that. I'm making it in shades of grey, black and white and blue/turquoise/teal for the centre blocks.
Linking up with so scrappy........ there's lots of orangery goodness to check out there.
'till next time
