Hello Everyone,

Don't you just love the color orange? This Sunday my Mod Conn Quilt Guild will be meeting (if you live in CT and would like more info either leave a comment or send me an e-mail) and this time we were challenged to use the color orange in a 12.5 inch block.

I thought about it for a little while and knew exactly what I wanted to make! A Drunkard's Path block, a little bit revamped.

I took a bunch of orange fabric from my stash and cut them with the Drunkard's Path Die on my AccuQuilt Studio Cutter. Love that!

Then I joined them together, but it was not done yet. It is only 9.5 inches at this point. So I dug deeper into my orange stash and then added these...

A scrappy border. Every fabric is different and every fabric is very orange. I think I might just need to make an entire quilt like this! I love this block! My son's favorite color is orange, so this could be on the agenda this year for a wonderful quilty Christmas gift.

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else created. I will make sure to bring you some photos of all of them!

What do you think of orange? What do you think of this block, would it look good in an entire quilt?

Until Next Time...
