Orange + Giveaway Winner

I’ve decided that the color of the week this week must be orange.  I've had my fill of orange for awhile!  First of all it was fall break for our local schools so our family headed down to Moab and Arches National Park for a few days.  Arches is one of our family's most favorite spots on earth. 

  Arches National Park

We spent two days exploring all of the arches, hikes, and vistas.

And the gorgeous, soft orange sand got everywhere.  But that’s part of the fun, right?  Here I am walking through one of the narrow slot canyons to get to a spot appropriately named Sand Dune Arch.

And this is the view as you drive from Arches down into Moab.  I mean come on.  How can you not love a view like that?  After the two days of camping here, my youngest son asked if we could just move to Moab.  I said yes, because they do after all have a quilt shop!

In addition to all of the orange rocks, sand, and views from this week, I’ve also been sewing with my orange fabrics.  Care to guess why?  Yep.  I’m doing just a bit of Halloween sewing.  I was hoping to maybe get a cute Halloween quilt done this year but that just didn’t happen.  Instead I pulled out my stack of oranges…

…and then decided I didn’t have enough so I bought more.

I did end up making something Halloween-ish, and I’ll show you the finished project on Friday, along with a tutorial.  In the meantime, here’s the winner of the Cascade fat quarter stack giveaway!
