Rainbow Scrap Challenge

New Month - New Color!

April snuck a 5th Tiny Tuesday in, but I pretended I didn't notice.  I may go back and reverse applique that little heart at a later point in time; but, for now, I'm moving on to ORANGE!

Always first on my agenda in a new month:  Chandelier Beads.

Chandelier Beads
The most challenging thing about this simple block is finding a scrap chunk big enough to cut a 3.5" square and still have enough left for two 2" squares.  I have a big selection in yardage but this is a scrap challenge, after all!

I have my three Double Shot (Double X) blocks cut and managed to get the first one completed before bedtime last night.

Too bad the new color isn't hot pink.

  1. I like those two blocks you are making - nice!

  2. Libby, I would so love to see a scarlet tanager. Apparently they are around here as well but I've never seen one. And you got a photo too.
    Gorgeous blocks as always and such a fine blush pink flower.

  3. Just love those chandelier bead blocks--I have never seen a scarlet tanager--only cardinals in that beautiful red here...we presently have a territorial robin smashing himself against our living room picture window...what a mess--we have to pull the blinds to stop him...not fun...hugs, Julierose

  4. Lovely blocks Libby. I hope to get my orange scraps out today.
