W&G and Orange Crush Quiltalong & RSC

 Today Kathy and I skipped hiking (my knee is still not right and I had a migraine today to say nothing of the fact that she went to urgent care yesterday) but we went to Discovery Park and walked a mile on easier turf.  We then picked up our ceramics from As You Wish.  Here is my gnome all fired!  And Kathy's dog too!
 When we got home I whipped up my weekly Wild and Goosey block so I could do the Honk Honk on Quiltville's Open Studio.  I almost skipped it but Linda actually asked me where my check-in was so I was motivated to do it.  Really works to have a simple goal like one block a week!
 The Orange Crush Quiltalong officially kicks off on the 20th but I went ahead and got started anyway because I know I might need more time on some of it...Here is my first Orange Crush which I gave away...
 Here are all the four patches (plus a few extras) for step one!  I actually have 22 leftover clue two parts, so I am already on clue two--lol!

 I also decided I should finish up my RSC Sampler block....this one didn't work at all since I used the Quilt in a Day ruler to make the flying geese and didn't pay attention to the fact that I needed to make the color the bigger piece of fabric so that it would turn into the wings of the geese....sort of losses the star here.
 A little unsewing and another set of geese and I am much happier with this block called Marley!
 Pulled out the blue from January and I see I used blue instead of whites for the corners and such.
And Block Four--Bear Paw or Lady of the Lake:


Linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!

Your RSC blocks are coming along nicely. Have fun with your 2nd Orange Crush quilt! I wanted to make one of those, but had too many other things going. One of these days...

It was worth it to rework that pink sampler star. Good job!

I don't know how I missed this post! Love how your gnome turned out. Very pretty. The sampler blocks are looking great.
