September was the orange month ...

... in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I have just caught up with two of the rainbow projects I started in January.

I showed the orange basket last week:


and this week I finished an orange 7x7 patch with wonky star.


I made a few at the beginning of the year but work got very busy in the spring leaving me very little time for sewing. I shall be picking up the projects in 2018 and hope to have more success.

I also made an orange wonky star for the Dutch Modern Quilt Guild block-a-week project. (I'm way behind with that too!)


In the meantime pink (October's colour) has now taken over my sewing room. I'm heading off there to start sewing my pairs of 2" pink squares together for the next 7x7 patch.

Happy sewing

Your wonky stars are wonderful! And your baskets continue to amaze me! (I covet them enough to be considering making some, too!)

Love your orange basket, so bright and cheerful. Mine is still in a stalled-progress state. Lovely wonky star. Enjoy! ;^)

Wonderful oranges! Love the basket, I hope you are planning on keeping it for yourself too pretty and useful to give away.
