RSC 2020 February - Orange

I've been eagerly awaiting the new RSC color to make sure I made a scrappy pinwheel before the month was done, and I was so hoping the February color for RSC 2020 was going to be red. But no, the choice this month is orange. 

Hmm, not a fan? But just look at all those orange possibilities! It's a color I don't have problem with, yet I'd rather see it in the fall, paired with yellows and reds - oh make me swoon with that combo!

Believe it or not, my orange scraps are rather on the stingy side, filling only a quart size zip lock bag. I thought I would have more after making all those pumpkins and leaves over the last couple years. Maybe I was very efficient in my cutting and sewing?

Anyway, I managed to have enough for the 12 1/2" pinwheel block, which I love - it reminds me of orange sherbet -

and a couple 8.5" and 4" blocks. Still not sure what I'll do with these.

Now there's just a few scraps in the bag, which are sorta orange and don't belong anywhere else. But they weren't a good fit for this project, so back in they go, along with the few small pieces left from the blocks.

And I've fulfilled my commitment for the month, on my way to completing a full year of RSC - woohoo! Two down, ten to go. Are you playing along??

Happy Quilting!

Thanks for following!


  1. I waited for red too this month. But I have lots of orange scraps, and will not have a chance to empty the box. Your blocks are so pretty. And your zipper bag looks so organized.

  2. I was lucky to have orange in my stash I used most of it last year and didn't replenish

  3. I think my bag of orange scraps is close to the same size as yours. Its not a color I use alot.

  4. Oooh nice block choices--great use of scrappy pieces hugs, Julierose

  5. Actually it's 2 down 8 to go because Angela usually wraps up RSC colors in October leaving Nov & Dec for finishing (ha ha, like that ever happens with my RSC projects.) I like your pinwheels.

  6. Orange is a real marmite colour I think, but at least you had some. I don’t usually join in, well, I haven’t joined in with anything for a while, but it’s tempting. First I have to find some orange.......

  7. I love what you did with the oranges!

  8. Hi Susan, those are really great orange blocks. I find orange so cheerful :-)

  9. I used to avoid orange but it has become one of my favs! Your orange fabrics are great!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
