Orange - The Dresden Edition


Orange is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. 
Each month I make 4 Dresden blocks on gray backgrounds. They also have a polka dot center and gray rickrack around the center. The other self-imposed rules:
1. One block of color of the month
2. One block in color of month plus its complement
3. One block in color of the month plus black/white
4. One block in color of the month plus white/black. 

Got scraps?
Use them up and link up each ScrapHappy Saturday. 
Color will be changing soon!

Marvelous blocks. And I do love your use of rules in the RSC. I'm definitely going to have to adopt that for next year.

Great colours as always. I like that you impose some rules and every month I have fun seeing which version I like best. I thought it might always be the same one but it isn't. This time I like the plain old colour of the month best.

I'd never had Dresden Envy until I started seeing yours every month... 8)
(Next year. Say it again, gayle. Next year.)

I also think your color rules really work to make "rainbow" blocks that don't end up looking like a rainbow quilt. Brava!
