Orange you glad it's spring?!

the calendar says "spring" but the snow and cold weather this week says "April Fools!" crazy weather here in NE PA, but at least it's sunny! I look outside at the sunny, beautiful weather (when it's not snowing) but when I go outside, I'm shocked at how cold it is!


I hung up all 4 rows of my low volume plus quilt (I'm making 9 pluses in each color, and I'll probably add a couple colors that are not in RSC16 to bring the quilt to a nice size) it's a little more busy, and a little less low volume than I was hoping for, but I think it will get better as I go along...


5 more granny squares joined their buddies in the RSC16 drawer; only 4 had their picture taken. for being so short on oranges, I'm surprised at the variety that I have! ( true confession: I did buy 2 FQs- on sale- at my LQS last week, and 2 more at the MCC relief sale...)

had some good news this week; I'll be free to share it next week....

meanwhile, click on over to angela's and see all the other orange projects...

Good news is a great thing! Lots of orange variety... I think I need to enhance my stash to add some variety to mine. Orange is my smallest bit and took a hit last year.

I have a hard time resisting orange fat quarters... 8)
I'm really enjoying watching your plus quilt grow. I like it so much that it's now on my list of RSC blocks for next year.
And love your orange grannies, too! Another tempting pattern!

I love your scrappy low volume background prints -- so much more interesting than a single background color. (And I'm sure you could still join in and catch up with the OMMS -- I am enjoying it)

Your blocks look great! I love the plus quilt and its scrappy background.

LOL!! I suppose there's no harm in asking to the stash to supplement colors with few scraps. Hmm... Maybe I should head out to the store!!

Your plus blocks have very good contrast with the low volume pieces and it makes them really stand out. A great start!

Very pretty blocks. One of these days I am going to make granny square blocks.

Magpie Sue said...

Yeah, orange isn't really a love volume color is it? ;- ) Your blocks are looking good though!

Angie said...

Great looking blocks! Love the way the orange in the grannies really pops!

I love your plus quilt blocks! What size small squares are they made of? That is a great idea for your RSC blocks!

Cathy said...

Love the different backgrounds on the Plus quilt and my what gorgeous Grannies you have!
