Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Orange

I didn't have much time to make headway with the orange scraps this week. Well, that's not exactly true. Lots of cutting and sewing of orange scraps went on, but not much was finished.
I had in mind to try Beth's dump and sew idea. I dumped out a box of batik scraps and just started piecing the orangey ones together. This is what I accomplished before I decided I wasn't feeling it! 
So I moved on to cutting the orange squares for my monthly Knot block.  I am ready to cut the background and then start working on the value order.

  3. Do you think that the reason you are not loving your orange dump scraps is that they are all too similar in value? Just a thought.......

  9. Hmmm. I can see all those 'dump' fabrics cut as various leaves and falling from a single tree and onto the ground..... I think I am just missing fall in the north! Great fabrics.
