I did take Labor Day to heart last weekend and didn't do much other than sew. So to an extent it's time to pay the piper. But I did get a lot of sewing done last weekend, including 2 orange blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Both My Guy and I went to graduate school at OSU (That's Oklahoma State University, not to be confused with Oregon State University which not only has the same initials, but the same school colors). I have a whole collection of OSU fabrics that will at some future date make it into a quilt, so I just cut off a bit from one fat quarter to make the block.

It's amazing what you can do with a bit of fussy cutting. This cup turned out really cute. Even My Guy likes it. I'm still working on cup number 3 for the month, so I don't have a picture of the all the blocks to date. You can see what was up on the design wall at the end of August here.
I'm really enjoying the challenge and making the blocks. It's been fun to see what other scrappy projects are in the works. Definitely getting some ideas for next year. I'm going to go link up with Soscrappy and then check out what new scrappiness has been going on this month.
