Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Purple

OH my goodness...where did the week go?!
It's Saturday already, and time for a Rainbow Scrap Challenge posting.  Each month I have been piecing together small scraps in the colour of the month...this month is purple (click here to see my green blocks from last month).
I am using a technique that might be called "liberated quiltmaking", or "crumb piecing", or "Gee's Bend style", or "crazy patchwork".
Whatever you want to call it, it is F U N and at the end of the year, these 6" blocks are going to become a very colourful rainbow quilt!

  2. I love the way your blocks look. I tend to be more organized in my piecing, but would love to try some morre randon pieceing like these.
