|Pink RSC Blocks in progress for the top and O.P.O's|
I've started adding the blocks I've made from Angela's RSC tutorials onto my scrappy quilt following Rosemary Youngs directions for a Scrappy Orphan Block Quilt. I'm really happy with how my first quilt is coming along.
And the O.P.O.'s? Those are Other People's Orphans that I've adopted. I went to the craft thrift store for orange fabric scraps (they have a "scrap" basket and you can fill a lunch size paper bag for $1). Unfortunately no orange scraps, in fact no orange fabric at all in the entire store! (Fat quarters are normally $0.75, yards are $1.50-$2 depending on the fabric). But, I did find a bunch of orphans in the scrap basket...so now I'm going to give them a home in my orphan quilt! :)
