ScrapHappy Saturday - Orange you Glad its Fall?

I made these two orange stars last Sunday.  That was the last time I sat at the sewing machine.  Work has been keeping me busy these days, and with my other chauffeur out of town, I've spent time with my foot on the gas pedal instead of the sewing machine pedal.  He's home again now though, and I am sure he won't object to some sewing time before the cycle starts again.  The kids will be running around for the most part, so other than needing rides to practices, games and parties, we are somewhat unnecessary.
I am really enjoying orange!  Aren't these Mai Tai Stars happy?  They have partial seams which takes a bit of concentration, but I am going to love them in the finished quilt.  All of the split HST blocks are done, they just need to be put together.
How are your oranges coming along?  Use the linky to share your progress so that we can all come and enjoy.

I'm still waiting for summer to get here!! It's one of those years when it never got warm.
I love the Mai tai blocks! Maybe I'll make a wonky version in pink. :)

I love the Mai Tai's! I think they are worth dealing with a partial seam. So many great oranges here today!

I love the beginning of fall with all the brilliant colors. Such pretty blocks.

The orange mai tai stars are wonderful. And a Mai Tai probably helps with the partial seams.

I finished up with my orange hexagons that I had.
Now I'm moving on to making yo-yo's with orange fabrics from my scrap bins. Woot! More things that will get done.
