Feeling Orange

I can't help but think of the episode of The Big Bang Theory when I think of 'feeling orange'. That Sheldon is a hoot.

I got to sew some more pinwheels this week in orange.



I've also found most of those 'bonus' triangles from making the pinwheels. I have an idea for the use of them and have the basket of HST and pairs next to the sewing machine and sew a few in between doing other things. They are growing fast. I did not trim them up and will just do that after they are all together. I plan to put these in the border of one of the quilts and will offset each side with a strip of cream/white and have them staggered around the border. That is the thought but we'll see if it happens when the quilt is closer to the putting together stage.

Here is a picture of all the blocks I have made so far this year with three leftover from what I won from my guild in VT a few years ago. I think I want 20 blocks in each quilt so I have a bit more of these to make.




Head on over to Soscrappy on Saturday and see what other orange goodness is happening this week.

  8. So fun! When I see the blocks laid out like that, I think I would want to put a colour coordinated yoyo in the centre of each one...FUN!
