Orange Scraphappy Saturday - "H"

The last Saturday of the month for our colour Orange.
 Over this month I have made 10 orange cats so this week thought I would post a shot of the start of a quilt mentioned  yesterday the "H" quilt to be known now as the "H for Heywood" quilt. This  will be made during the Choose Your Own Block Along -  my first link-up on Monday  (see the button on my sidebar)  - and these first two blocks, whilst not totally orange (no surprise there) do have orange in there. Yes they are bold bright colours but there will be a mix of different contrasts in the blocks as I go along. Thanks again to Wanda at Exuberant Color who designed this block and shared the directions for making it on her blog.

NOTE: I have been having problems with my camera, the settings seem to have a mind of their own at the moment so please bear with me if there are one or two issues with my photos this should be sorted by my next post Monday. Ther next fun bit will be to see if I get the distortion when I link up with RSC 2014, fingers crossed - again! See what everyone else has completed in orange  here at RSC 2014.

  8. Great little block. Lovely fabric choices. When I first saw the block I thought, "Oh no I've missed the g and h at Temecula." Glad to hear I didn't. This is totally different.
