Orange and a Whole Lot More!

 Linking up with Angela over at SoScrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Orange Link Up.  I have been working on my lozenge leaders and enders and am making some real progress!  Cannot wait to get all these lozenges into a quilt top!
 I also made block 7 of Tula Pink's City Sampler.  Really enjoying these little blocks!
 Last night and this morning I finished all the Scrappy Mountain Majesties blocks and got them sewed together!  I still need to add borders but it is time to go into work for several hours, so they will wait (yes, I picked up hours on a Saturday--ugh!).

The vast majority of these blues came from the estate fabric sale I was lucky enough to go to last May.  I have an overabundance of blues (I like them and she did too) but I still found it hard to have lots of variety in this--especially in the lights.  Overall I love it and am hoping my youngest son Mac will love having a bed size quilt for his  double bed.

Your Lozenge blocks are tantalizing!!! I love the contrast of the oranges with your black corners :) And congrats on your MM top - your son will enjoy it for many years to come!

I really like your scrappy mountain majesties. You have some very nice orange fabrics.

Those black and white corners on the lozenges remind me of a checkerboard floor from a fifties diner, you got so much done again this weekend! It always feels so good to be productive.

Your orange lozenges look terrific, and I love the colors in your Scrappy Mountain Majesties.

Love all you got done. You have so many Lozenges done. I might have to do those too. Love your sampler blocks. I could not find my Pink Tulip sampler block yesterday.

Love, love, LOVE your Scrappy Mountain Majesties quilt top progress!
So many are making those Lozenges. I look forward to seeing you post pictures of them in each month's color.

I've always thought Mountain Majesty pattern was perfect for a guy quilt. It looks wonderful in those blues.

Love the lozenges. Now I'm wishing I did the larger size. They are kind of boring sewing since I don't do the leader /ender thing. I saw a lozenge quilt in Kaffe Fasset's new book.
