More Oranges

My final orange projects for the month.  I was able to make one house block and two nine patch blocks.
Most of the month of September I have been sewing on this orange quilt.  No it is not a fall quilt or a Halloween quilt.   I needed a prayer quilt for a man quickly.  I found these black squares of fabrics and some orange, yellow, gold, and brown fat quarters.  Of course I had to use orange flannel for the backing.

I also finished two I Spy baby quilts.  The first one as I finished the quilt I gave it to a friend for a little one who was in the hospital.  I never got a picture of finished quilt.  I was going to give the quilt to someone else.  Now I am sewing on two more baby quilts.  I need them finished by the end of September.  So I think my orange projects are finished.  I wonder what color is next.  I guess we will have to go over to Angela to see the October color.

I am linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  There are always lots of lovelies to look out.

Quilty Orphan Adoption Giveaway

Cynthia Brunz at Quilting is more fun than Housework is hosting an orphan adoption.   

These "Be Attitudes" are orphans and need a home.  The blocks are ready to be appliqué.  I don't see my self finishing these blocks.  I would love for these blocks to find a good home.
I will send the pattern and the few scraps I have.  

Please leave a comment if you would likes these blocks.  I would love it if you finished the "Be Attidues" and donate the quilt to a charity.
  I will draw a winner on Tuesday, September  22.  I will pay shipping in the USA only.

I Spy Orange And Snowballs

September brings a new color for the rainbow scrap challenge.  The new color is orange.  I did take time to make a couple orange house blocks.  I don't have many orange pieces of fabric.  I am sure I will find some more orange before the month is over.  If you want some inspiration go to Angela's rainbow scrap challenge.  I guarantee there will be lots of great orange things.

I made a couple more houses.  I now have a total of 35 houses.  I still need more houses before I have enough for a quilt.  Time to cut more blocks.

Last fall my friend Norece and I decided to make a flowering snowball quilt.  Norece made her quilt right away.  You can see Norece's quilt here.  I would make blocks and then put them away for awhile.  Well I finally finished the quilt.    Norece was kind enough to offer to quilt it for me.   That makes my quilt even more special.  It has been six years since I have made a new quilt for our bed.

All fabrics are Kansas Trouble.  I made an extra block for the label.
I Spy a baby quilt.
I need two baby quilts for gifts.  Here is one of them in progress.
