ScrapHappy Saturday - Orange Roundup

 
It is the last orange Saturday.  I've enjoyed seeing all the fall colors coming out this month.  A lot of block collections seem to be coming together right about now, which is good timing as the end of the year starts to peek its head around the corner.  Starting to see all the different colors come together is all part of the fun of the end of year.
 Last weekend I spent a good bit of time putting together baby nine patches with churn dash blocks.  These little guys have been brewing for quite a while, so seeing them turn into a quilt will be enjoyable.
Speaking of things that are enjoyable.  It is time to start taking names for the giveaway of Vicki Welsh's hand dyed fabric for the new month.  To enter the drawing, just leave a comment on this post with the number one quilt on your "someday" list.

So fun..... It's a toss up between storm at sea and dresden plate for the 'someday' list. Have a good weekend.

Chantal said...

Love to come here every weekend and get inspired. First on the to-do list is Shakespeare in the Park. In blue! Thanks.

Cathy said...

Love how your quilt is coming together!

Someday when I grow up I want to make a New York Beauty.

Boy this month has really gone quickly! Love your churn dash nine patch quilt! I love the idea of doing little nine patches. The one quilt I have always wanted to make is a winding ways.

Dasha said...

I have enjoyed watching your progress with those dear little 9 patches. They look good with the churn dashes as alternate blocks.
My long term project on the "to do" list has been a Quilt of Crosses. Keeps sliding down the list as I find more and more interesting things in which to become involved. Blame that Pinterest!!

I have always wanted to make a Sunbonnet Sue.

Jean said...

I would like to make Basket Lattice. This pattern was designed by the daughter of a member of our guild.

Nell's Quilts said...

Those little nine patches and churn dash blocks in a rainbow of colours will make such a lively quilt. It just sings.
At some point in time I would like to make a hand appliqued quilt and quilt it by hand. I'm not sure what the pattern will be just yet. There are so many choices.

I would love to make a wedding ring quilt. hopefully before my daughter gets married!

Kate said...

The 9 patch and churn dash quilt looks great.

On my someday list is a Dresden plate quilt.

Kat Scribner said...

I've sat out all month. Not alot of orange scraps and certainly not much variety. I made a very simple block for my growing row quilt and finished off too many hours making these pumpkin greeting cards. This is my favourite monthly challenge and the only one I can stay with joyfully!

Kat Scribner said...

I forgot to leave words for my 'someday' quilt. It would be a beautiful log cabin with lots of applique in the light areas and borders.

Mari said...

Your quilt is really coming together. It's going to look great! "Someday" I want to make a Cathedral Window quilt. All by hand, though, so it'll be a while!

Julie in GA said...

Your nine-patches and churn dash blocks look wonderful together! Great diagonal movement in your layout.
Someday I hope to make a Winding Ways quilt, and my husband has been wishing for a Mariner's Compass.

Sally T said...

Thanks to Carla, the Pickle Dish quilt is on my list for someday.

I love how it is all coming together. I don't like the color orange and yet seeing these blocks I am beginning to change my mind.

Teresa in Music City said...

Love, love, love your little nine patches Angela!!! I'm so sad to see Orange go! But of course I'm excited to see the next color :) My #1 quilt on my Someday List is to finish up my Hawaii Sunset!

Sheila said...

I love your orange blocks, Angela. I want to make a big colorful scrappy sting block quilt with each center strip the same color. That's on my list for next year : )
Love this rainbow scrap challenge.

Marly said...

On my list is definitely Storm at Sea, probably with a twist!

This is my first quilt...so I hope to get it done someday! I do love Jen Kingwell's Gypsy Wife quilt and think it might be fun to try.

Mystic Quilter said...

Lovely to see your quilt coming together now, the combination of 9 patch and churn dash works beautifully.
My someday quilt is Lollypop Trees by Kim McLean

Karen said...

A carpenter star. I hope it is on my someday soon list.

Quiltdivajulie said...

Late to post today - neighbor had a new fence installed and the contractor cut the cable line. 24 hours later, we all now have temporary above-ground lines strung until the other guys can come dig a big hole next week.

Happy to be here in Rainbow Land!

Quiltdivajulie said...

p.s. My #1 "someday" quilt? Another scrappy quilt featuring free-pieced words . . . not sure which "topic" which is why is hasn't happened yet. Someday!!

Angie said...

Love your baby nine patches; I especially enjoy them since I know I don't have the patience to do the same! My current some day quilt is a pickle dish.

Jeanne said...

Robbing Peter to Pay Paul is on my Someday list.

Claire said...

I'll join the many who want to make Storm at Sea; it has always fascinated me.But then Mariner's Compass does too.

Bonnie said...

Hum... Does it count if I say any quilt I haven't made yet? I have got my eye on the log cabin quilts in Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts ny Judy Martin. I may attempt it one of these days.

I'm behind on the color challenge but hope to catch up in Oct.
