I`ve seen some pretty fantastic rainbows in my life (the most notable I posted on my Instagram account ( @cathy_k_in_ut ) a couple weeks ago. But I have never seen brown in any rainbow. However, I do have plenty of brown fabric scraps, and mom Angela encouraged us to give it a go. So I did, and I am glad I did.
There is good contrast in the block, and it will fit in nicely with the other colors in my quilt. Thanks for the encouragement, Angela!
And I never did post this picture last month. September was our orange month, and I did three bright orange blocks like the one on the bottom left below. We had already done yellow back in March, and one of those blocks is on the top in the below pic. However, one of my very favorite colors is yellow-orange, and I had lots of those scraps. So, I decided to do a block out of those. I think it is a good transition block from the yellows to the oranges. Not that the quilt will need transitioning blocks ... the layout will be random. But still.
I only have two more blocks to do, and I know what color they are going to be (bright/light greens) regardless of the color chosen for next month. And that is because I still have two larger blocks to piece for our Euro shams, so I can use future color(s) on them while still finishing up this quilt top. A method to my madness. Or, madness to my method?? Whatever.

And just to keep up to date with my Farm Girl blocks, I am showing the ones I have completed since my last Farm Girl update. Sorry about the quality; I just threw them down and snapped pictures; no pressing, no removal of stray threads or

Finally, I have started making some zip pouches for gifts (birthdays, Christmas). The first two were sooooo cute, but I didn’t get pictures of them before I sent them off to my daughter in Seattle. But that is OK; I plan to sew lots more.
I am linking up to Scrappy Saturday at Angela’s So Scrappy blog. If you have scraps, or even if you don’t, we would love to have you join us!!
