FNwF - October 2021

I sat down last night and finished off my scrappy orange quarter log cabin blocks. These are for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for September.


Earlier in the month, I finished off the orange hexie flower portion of the challenge. I really quite like the contrast of the orange against the black and white backgrounds.


There's not long to go before we put our year long rainbow quilts together and I'm really looking forward to seeing how mine will look.

Thanks to Chez for hosting Friday Night with Friends. Pop on over to see what everyone else worked on.

What a striking set of blocks (the quarter log cabins) but I also love the effect of the orange on the black & white

Thanks Jeanette.
I seem to have a lot of orange fabrics in my scrap baskets so had plenty to work with :)

Thanks Susan. Each month of colour seems to become my favourite :)
I just saw that October is lime green, so i think they'll look fun on a b & w background too.

Great blocks! Orange is such a cheerful colour, and your hexis look quite striking against the B&W

Ooo. I love both the orange blocks you made. Now will you combine them in a quilt? Or will you use only the scrappy logs, along with other colors of scrappy logs, to make a quilt? Seems like you'll have lots of good possibilites. In what month can you begin to assemble the blocks?

Orange is my favorite color so everything looks lovely to me but those hexies on dark and light background are just so yummy. I am stealing that idea for later use.
