Orange 3.5 Inch Scraps


This week I dug into the Orange and Brown 3.5 inch scraps. 
That resulted in a few Snowballs with dark corners and a little strip. If a piece ends up to be less than a 3.5 inch square I sew those pieces into a strip. I used to throw them in the crumbs box but for awhile now I've been making some strips in the various sizes. I'll determine a use for them later. 

I normally make these little 3.5 inch Rail Fence blocks from the 1.5 inch scraps but I know there are only a couple of orange pieces in there so instead of cutting two 3.5 inch pieces off of a 1.5 scrap like usual I cut two 1.5 inch pieces off of the 3.5 inch scrap.   I do have lots of brown scraps in the 1.5 inch scrap bin so will make more brown rails when I get to those scraps.

Your snowball blocks are such a good idea - especially with both dark and light corners. They will be useful in so many ways!

Makes sense I would find a few pumpkins, spiders and witches! LOL

Those little snowballs and fence rails are adorable! I very rarely use orange but I think I may need to start collecting more. I'm curious as to what you will do with them.
