Scrappy Saturday - Orange

I missed the scrappy saturday posting last week, but this week, I'm on it!  It's the last week for orange, so I finished a couple more orange crumb blocks for my crummy rainbow quilt, bringing the orange total to 19!! I was surprised to note that I now have more orange blocks for this quilt, than any other colour...wierd, since I rarely buy orange fabric! Where are these scraps coming from?!? 
I also finished up a few more leader/ender Alamo stars with my orange batik scraps. In the last 6 months I have sewn more than 60 of these blocks and I still adore them, so I will keep making more.
Wow...that blue one really stands out like a sore thumb! I either need to make more blocks with that blue, or throw that one out.
Hop over to SoScrappy and check out the other orange scrap projects. Wonder what the new colour will be for April!?!?

I am sure by the end of the year something else will blend with the blue. Glad you came up with so much orange. It is funny to see what colors there are the most of in our scrap baskets.

I love those little star blocks, I need a good crumb block like this :-) if you "toss" it turn it into a pin cushion or something like that!

I have loved seeing the orange blocks on blogs this month and will be sorry to see it go. It is so warm and happy, and very underappreciated. : )
Don't chuck the blue star--make more!!

Gorgeous orange crumb blocks Kathy! Also love the Alamo stars. That blue one looks so good I think you need to keep it and make more ;)

I'd keep the blue and see how it plays with other colors down the road... it's been a great month of orange!

All the blocks are great!

Orange is a happy color. Fun!

I'm always going to stick up for every block you want to throw out for being too noticeable, and this is no exception :)

I love your crumb blocks and those stars - I can't believe how many you got done this month. Lots of sewing time for you.
