Oh boy, I do!!!
They were my favorite ice cream when I was a child!!! Orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream swirled together - pure heaven on a stick!!!! (I wonder, do they still make those?)
That's what I think of when I play with ORANGE fabrics =^..^=
For March, Scraphappy Saturdays will be filled with lots of bright, bold orange scrap blocks, as well as some mellow peaches, and let's not forget those deep, rich pumpkins! Sounds good enough to eat, right? LOL!!!
I was a little surprised when I pulled out my ORANGE bin to find that I really don't have that many orange scraps. The drawer holds oranges and yellows, and somewhere along the way they had managed to get all mixed up in there. I can't imagine how that happened LOL!!!
So before I could even begin to plan my RSC blocks, I had to go through and separate the scraps. Here they are, all tamed and playing nicely in my scrap work basket - dig that wild orange animal print LOL!!!
As I said, not many there, but I think it will be enough. The larger scraps are in the basket, while the glass jar holds the crumbs.
There wasn't a lot of time left for sewing today after all that organizing, but I did manage to get the ORANGE Lone Starburst blocks done....
These paper-pieced blocks are so much fun!!! And I love the quilty words in that gray text stripe :*)
Stash Enhancement Report -
I added these two half yards of Kaffe Fassett oranges to my stash this past week, but they won't be used in the RSC - that's strictly for scraps! The colors here are a little washed out, but take my word for it, these are YUM!!!
In addition, a group of us made a road trip to Whittles in Kentucky this past Monday. My plan was to try to find backings for my current and upcoming projects - and I was very successful!!! I found six pieces for backings at a GREAT price - whoohoo!!! I don't know about you, but I really hate to spend a lot of money on the back of a quilt.
The first one I picked out was a wonderful aqua fatback for Easy Street so I won't have to piece the backing and it's now ready for quilting. Then I couldn't believe it when I found this fabric on the clearance shelf .... can you guess the quilt I will back this with?
Oh yeah, Daddy-O! Cool Cats!!!! This was not a fatback, but at only $2.50 a yard I'll be happy to piece the back for that :*) And could it be any more perfect for the Cool Cats quilt? No way!!!
Why not hop over to Patchwork Times to see what others are adding to their stashes?
March came in like a lion here in our neck of the woods - Here's hoping it goes out like a lamb, can I get an AMEN? We even got a little snow this morning although it was all gone very quickly. It looked really pretty on the trees....
It looks like I'm not the only one wishing Spring would hurry up and get here!
Gypsy looks pretty wistful doesn't she? She keeps crying to go out, but when I open the door and that cold air blasts her in the face, she shudders and backs up, looking at me as if I've played a nasty joke on her. Poor girl, I know how she feels!
Hugs & Blessings!
