Party Started

i have enough of these to do the whole challenge. that would be lovely & boring.some pretties with orange. but certainly never planned to put them together.then i peeked. & guess what. it's started. i have to go. if ya wanna know what's going on. we're playing with this & this. see ya later.

update 1 - using orange thread and thinking about the middles.update 2 - hmmm.
update 3 - before i move on i have to consider what might happen next.update 4 - the light cream(right) is a perfect companion to all the oranges. but it's see-thru. the dark cream(left) is more substantial. but should i change?update 5 - this will be an inspiration piece.i added a strip of cream to the outside edges so that the orange binding won't get lost. i'll do some hand stitching here and there. but without a supply of orange Perle Coton i'll have to go shopping. thanks Pat. this was fun. & valuable experience in working with color.

i started with a 4 in. center. used 2 in. strips & 1 1/2 in. center crosses. unfinished blocks should have measured 10 1/2 in. but i cut them down to 10 1/4 in. to prevent any problems.

update - my pic on Pat's blog here.
