Are you feeling Orange?

Another Saturday of orange fun! I did not plan ahead with the orange this week so after work and a nice dinner with Greg I got to sew a little while he went to pick up the kids from Grandma.

My 16 patch block was cut and sewn together.

I also made this week's posted RSC sampler block.


Next week will be hexagon flowers I think and some of the churn dashes. The busy bag is down to knitting so those hexagons need to get prepped for car line and Aidan's allergist appointment next week.

I have been working this week on making this Starlight Wishes top. This is the completed top with the prairie points. My first time at the prairie points and I think I really like them! I went with black borders so I could use all my colors for the points. There was a little miscalculation by me in the amount of black I had so I had to piece some edges from a kaleidoscope quilt a few years ago to get the last 8 inches I needed. Thank goodness for that scrap bucket.

I hope to prep this one for some machine quilting next week. What color binding do you think I should go with? All colors or just one to end it off? I know I have enough of the bright blue, yellow, green or red to bind it with a single color. You can purchase this pattern over at Canuckquilter later this month. All her patterns are so clear and concise they are wonderful to work with.

I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrappy this week. Head on over to get inspired by some lovely orange projects.

  2. Starlight Wishes looks beautiful! You could definitely use all colors for the binding, but one dominant color would really "frame" the quilt.

  3. Oh wow! I love how making the borders the same as the background makes the stars and the prairie points float. You do have a way with color! Yay for that handy dandy scrap bucket :) Whichever color (or colors) you choose will look fantastic.

  5. Love, love, love your Starlight Wishes! Not sure what I would do for the binding - usually I audition the colors. Also love your orange blocks. Orange is one of my favorite colors - definitely a happy color. ~Jeanne
