Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Orange Part 2

It's been a long week, so I'm glad it's the weekend.  Drama Teen is playing volleyball for school again this year, so we are off early this morning to play the first 2 games.  It should be interesting since she's one of two girls playing on the boys team.  She attends a very small school which this year didn't have enough girls or boys to put together separate teams,  so the diocese allowed the school to field a mixed gender team.  Since the team has more boys than girls, it's being dubbed a "boys" team.  Half the team has never played in the school league, so it may be a really long season.  But at least Drama Teen gets to play.  

Last weekend was my last "free" sewing weekend until the volleyball season is over.  I did get a lot done on several projects, including the last orange coffee cup for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I always associate orange with Halloween, so there was no question that these little guys had to be made into a cup.  It's been a lot of fun selecting the fabrics for these blocks, there is quite a diverse collection up on the design wall.

Not that I want time to pass any faster, but it certainly is hard to wait till next month to see what the next scrap color will be.  I skipped the neutrals month, so there will still be 3 blocks to make after the 9 blocks are made for Oct., Nov. and Dec.  I played with the idea of just going ahead with those 3, but I should probably wait till I know what the last 3 colors are.  Then I can fill it with whatever seems appropriate. 

That's it for my adventures with scraps.  I hope to link up with Soscrappy before we head out the door this morning.  I'll have to wait till the afternoon to check out what other scrappy fun has been posted there.

  4. It certainly as a very varied and dynamic collection of fabrics! Do you think you'll use sashing to put them together or just leave it as is?
