September is Orange

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour for September is Orange, yippee!  
I have a limited amount of orange in my stash and done a limited amount of sewing this week.
I was glad September would be orange so I could finish the final colour I needed in leaves. I forgot to take a picture of the leaves on their own, but I think I have the required number of blocks now, so just need to get time to start sewing them together.
This is the flannel backing for a cot quilt panel I started recently.   
So there is a bit of orange in this border and the binding.  I had to steal bits of orange off Lisa and my Mum to get enough variety to make my leaves.  Then when I thought orange binding was required I brought more fabric then I needed....which would have been fine, except now we all live in the same town with the same fabric shops....I already had this fabric from Mum to use in my leaves!  Oh well! 
I am not convinced there is enough quilting in this cot quilt, so have left a few pins in it and therefore I am not calling it a finish just yet :)
Happy quilting, Sue.

  1. I really love your leaves. When you first started, I couldn't imagine how it was going to look, but the further you get with it, the more exciting it becomes!

  4. The rainbow effect in the leaves is really lovely and just flows, not rigid as a regular block would be. It looks really natural to me. The little foxes are so cute. Is that Noah's ark on the front? So cute. Keep up the good work.

  14. I like the orange leaves. I call them YoYos. 😃 The red border on the bargello was perfect.
