Orange is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I've been making these stars each month from miscellaneous scrap pieces. I found I was very low on light orange but made it work best I could. I'm challenging myself to actually use scraps and nut cut into anything except for the background. The background was in my brown stash but with the oranges it sure looks dark orange now.
The rest of this week's blocks are from the 4.5 inch scraps.
I made a chevron block plus had some leftover 4.5 HSTs for the "kitchen sink" pile. I only needed one more orange chevron for my yellow and orange row.
I made some of these 4.5 inch "things" which seem to have a lot of different layout possibilities from what I've seen in books and in blog land. At the end of the year I will have a rainbow of them and decide what to do with them then.
And finally from the 4.5 scraps I made some Flying Geese. If the color of the month is a secondary color I use primary colors for the sides - also from the 4.5 scrap box.
