A new month is always just the right time for a new color here at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Before you jump in, let me just say, that I know people have strong feelings about the color orange. Really is isn't as scary as I used to think. I've worked hard over the years to try to add little bits of orange to my stash. It adds such a nice little spark and is sure to brighten things up. If you are having problems getting enough contrast with your oranges, try to work in a few browns to autumn things up a bit. Really, give it a try.
With just one more day of vacation before the big back to school day tomorrow, there was time to work on just one more project. There were two bags of postage stamp stars in the bin. This one had a note letting me know the setting, and that there were cornerstones in the bag, but that it needed sashing.
Sure enough, this is what it looked like coming out of the bag.
So the afternoon was spent cutting out sashing strips while listening to more Grey's Anatomy. I've been gravitating toward gray accents for rainbow quilts lately. The top is about half sewn, but there is still time. Texts and e-mails are starting to come in as everyone is shifting gears back to school mode again. Deep breath, here we go again.
