Hey, it's April! I didn't want to post on the 1st, lest you think this is all a foolish joke. I want you to seriously Show Me Something Orange!!

Your interpretation of orange is up to you... light, dark, vibrant, earthy. Anything goes! Your project might be all orange, orange may be the feature, or maybe orange is a supporting character.

Let this peek at the orange wall from The Color Factory (when it was in San Francisco) give you some inspiration. Your project can be something new you make this month or something you've finished previously.

 

This is one of my favorite uses or orange. I chose to work from stash on this project and chose enough fat quarters and half yard cuts for each color in the quilt to make it scrappy.

This one uses scrappy slabs, one of my favorite techniques to teach. The pattern is Beach Retreat from Kelly Young's book, Stash Statement.

And how can we talk about orange quilts without a pumpkin!?

 

This one isn't a quilt, but isn't the actual size orange Lego couch (from the Friends Experience life-sized Lego Central Perk in Las Vegas) awesome!?

Tons of fabulous solids quilts were linked up last month. Thank you to everyone who linkup or visited others. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, hop over to see what folks shared.

And without further ado (especially since I'm late and backdating this to the 1st!) this month's challenge is to Show Me Something with Squares! This feels almost too easy, but came to me through an idea that I'm wanting to work on (though will certainly not finish this month).

Maybe your quilt is a square. Maybe there are squares on your fabrics. Maybe you pieced some squares. Or in the case of improv piecing, maybe they are approximately squares.

Squares within another design: churn dash, nine patch, four patches in the borders, etc.

Almost all squares.

Perfectly cut AccuQuilt squares (for the 4-patches and the background).

I look forward to seeing how you've used squares in your quilts in the past as well as any new quilts with squares you finish this month!

Thank you to everyone who linked up their challenge quilts last month. I can't believe it's already the first of the month again. I am excited with so many new things happening in my studio. I think I was inspired by this upcoming theme (as well as a class I'm taking -- more on that later) as I placed an order for a lovely assortment of solids this morning.

This month, Show Me Something with Solids. This can be a quilt in all solids or something with a mixture of prints and solids. Your finished projects can be something you've previously finished or something new you finish this month. If you're up for making something specifically for this challenge, keep in mind that any size is great! (The less time I have for a challenge, the smaller I make my project.) Please linkup up to 3 projects.

 

Maybe you enjoy monochromatic palettes.

Perhaps you like bright, vibrant colors.

This next set was the palette I used for a mini quilt I finished in January... once I write a blog post about it I'll link it up below.

I've pulled the following fabrics to use on my Color of Connection quilt. The quilt along started today. Consider joining in!

And these two beauties were the starting point and inspiration for my fabric order this morning. Kona Peapod and Cerise.

I look forward to seeing how you've used solids in the past as well as any new quilts with solids you finish this month!
