The RSC16 color for April is Orange, and of course I couldn’t help myself from diving right in.
I actually did a TEST block as I just got this die from Accuquilt- Rob Peter to Pay Paul and I had an idea to add a 4 patch inside first, it ended up being a bit crooked, but I got it figured out now! that’s why this block is a test, so I might do this block in the future months!
The first set of blocks I tackled where the double flying geese blocks
7 of them!
This is what they might look like in a quilt with the other blocks
Then I was able to make a hunter star block
I didn’t get to make a brown one last month- I might go back later and use my yardage, we’ll see.
My original idea was to use sashing in between the blocks, but I kind of like them close together like this!
Then I was able to make 4 triangle in a square blocks like these.
I was supposed to make 6 OR less, so less it is!
Of course I had to make an orange cupcake too and tried to have this floral print be at the top to add an interesting design!
Then 3 each of 6” snowball crumb blocks and nine patches with solid whites.
Lastly I finished the two log cabin blocks, one half neutral
Here’s the 8 blocks so far
THEN I have the final idea for this quilt! a 5 x 6 layout and the space in between with be half of TWO colors!
(I won’t know which two until all 12 colors are made and I have them side by side)
But that’s my plan so far!!
I kind of want to do more but only have tiny scraps left again, as orange is not a color I use much either, just like the brown and purple….
as you know all these are made with accuquilt dies!
Maybe I should just actually work on UFOs!!?? LOL
