August in orange

August is just zooming by, but I did find some time to make this month’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge block before it was over. This month was orange:

Orange has historically always been a challenge for me in rainbow quilts – it’s just not a colour I tend to have much of. But I didn’t have too much trouble for this one. Admittedly, some are a little more peach or coral, but once in the whole block, it still has an overall feel of ORANGE.

And when placed with the other seven blocks, it looks just right.

I am still leaning towards an on-point layout for this, but I didn’t want to disturb the two comfy kitties who’d taken over the design bed.

Now there are just four more months and blocks to go. Where has the year gone???

    Time is flying by! Those blocks look great. I love orange and for some reason have lots of it in the stash. I was just looking for some fall colors for some binding and noticed how much of it I have.

    Well, that is my favorite block! I just love your fabrics and the kitty prints in the four blocks is perfect. That is going to be one awesome quilt.
