While I was lamenting my lack of orange, I remembered something. (Well, admittedly, first I remembered that there were online fabric stores that might possibly have oranges and might possibly be persuaded to sell me some and send them to me, but since the mailcarrier hasn't shown up with a box yet, I had to remember something else...)
I remembered that half-roll of strips I bought myself for my birthday.
I think I see some orange in there.
So, I opened it up to check.
And once again, the colors my camera shows are not the colors that exist in reality. Several of those pinks on the left are actually way more orange than they look. My camera tends to hallucinate sometimes. (I swear I'm going to start calling it 'Moonblossom' and reminding it that the 60's are over.) (And, holy crap, I just realized that the 60's have been over for damn near half a century. I think I need to go lay down.)
I netted the center squares for the blocks I had already cut out, and got them assembled.
And I cut a few more pieces for use with the oranges that might possibly show up in the mail. Oh, and the orange scraps that my SIL called to tell me she had for me, which I'll go get this weekend. Like I said, an orange magnet.
And I'm trying really hard to remind myself that I was only going to make a couple of orange blocks to blend between my red blocks and my yellows for my rainbow stars quilt. Because I have to really remind myself of that since I already have five and this is only the second Saturday in September and there's more orange heading my way.
Maybe I could make an orange Ohio stars quilt...
I'll be linking with So Scrappy for Scrap Happy Saturday, while I wish that there were at least eight Saturdays in September, so I could look at even more orange!
