2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, March, Orange, Week 2 and a 2012 RSC Quilt Finish



This 2012 RSC quilt is no longer a UFO. It's quilted with wavy horizontal lines. After a go in the washer and dryer, it finished at 62.5" x 81.5".
I like this quilt a lot : )

 

The colorful backing was pieced from my stash. It was time for some of those fabrics to go.

 

This is the second week that I have played with orange scraps. Four more 8.5" blocks and a happy scrappy house pieced using the pattern found on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville website. These little houses are fun to make with scraps. The square in a square in a star was a new block for me.
I cut 10 more 5" tumblers and several 2.5" squares.
A couple knitted dishcloths, green and orange, found their way into the picture. Love that yummy orange one. I like to knit and watch tv at night. And eat popcorn.
To see what other's made with their orange scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.

Wonderful quilt. This is one of the best settings for this that I have seen. I need to clean out some fabrics for backings that way too.
