Still doing the RSC (superscrappy) rainbow challenge, orange.
Above pic is my line up for chain sewing. It's fairly fast work when you get organized. I made 5 orange blocks this month. They are looking very exciting!
I also finished up some lime green blocks from last month. I wasn't thrilled that there are two shades of green chosen as colors of the month. When I use color, I use all shades together, so the previous green blocks had a bit of lime.
Here is a shot of the fabrics used this time...
That fabric and the one to it's left have been used in several of my quilts over the years.
Scraps last almost forever! There are certain fabrics that find their way into many quilts. Maybe it's the mix of light and dark, or the pattern, the shade or saturation of color. I don't know why.
The fabric on the bottom has coral, orange and purple with a flower graphic so I expect it will surface more than once.
I'm having a lighting challenge in the studio. They stopped making the bulbs I used for years in the spotlights. They gave very natural light and were GE reveal. We replaced them with GE Reveal bulbs that are LED and they wash out color. It's no longer light daylight.
I hope to find an answer to be able to take good color pictures again soon. I know there is a way to check white meters, but then I have to change the camera in every circumstance and it used to capture correct color wherever I was. It's all about those bulbs.
I also thought I might amuse you with this picture of a poodle...

and this picture of my flowers with two little candy corn people I bring out to decorate each Fall.
I have actually made 5-10 Halloween inspired quilts so I'll show those in "shock-tober"
Happy orange y'all!
