Scrappy Saturday

I am still dragging my heels from leaving the orange scraps!



I threw my pumpkin seed blocks up on the design wall in no particular order. 
I was disappointed because:
a) I thought I had sewn way more blocks than this, and 
b) it looks kind of blah. 
I think it needs more light, more orange, and gold/yellow blocks.









So I really got to work on some orange blocks, and have a few in various stages of completion.
They will really help to boost this project.

Great peels, and I can see that a few more orange ones will add more pizazz!

I wouldn't say blah at all, but more yellow is sure to brighten up any quilt. Enjoy!

I do agree too. Some more ♪♫ orange ♪♪ will jazz up the picture. I understand why you would think you did more than only 35 blocks. You actually did 140 peels. That's a lot Kathy. Since it takes 4 to make one block and they are so small, it takes a lot to do a large quilt. But you are getting somewhere. Hang in there. It will be so beautiful. Great work.

I love you blocks! Some orange peels will add just the right spark!

Jean said...

Love it, really! I think the orange will be a good touch...maybe a few with lighter backgrounds too?

Karen said...

I don't think your blocks on the design wall look blah. But if making more orange makes you happy.....go for it.

I know! The oranges were so happy! The browns, not so much. Guess they'll work in... LeeAnna at not afraid of color

Not blah at all! Work on it until you're happy :)

Looking good to me! Yummy orange fabrics.

Looks good to me too. I do like the Orange ones though. Will certainly add more color.

Mari said...

I actually like it as is, but if you think it needs something, go for it! Those orange peel blocks look so good. Nice work!

I agree the orange and some yellow or gold ones would add a bit more sparkle. Looks great so far!

The orange is a great addition! Lookin' good!

Janet O. said...

Yes, more orange--great idea!
What is the fun of seeing the ones who are following the rules? : )

Deb A said...

Remember there is not rule this must be finished this year! The dark browns might make the other brighter colors pop a bit.... when you get to them. Oranges are looking good. You make me want to shoo everyone out of the house so I can pin mine for hand quilting.

Kate said...

The orange will definitely perk up the design wall. Have fun stitching.

Edith said...

The orange will add a little zing and light to it, however I'm just loving what you have so far.

AnnieO said...

I'm amazed you think you haven't done many, given these are hand sewn--that represents a lot of stitching time! The orange will look great too :)

Mystic Quilter said...

This is looking lovely! So bright and cheerful.

katie z. said...

Your blocks are moving right along... And orange will be lovely!

margaret said...

Rules? Schmules . . . Listen to your quilt and give it what it needs! Angela didn't mind a bit when I went off-road and used blue green instead of whatever the color was for that month.
