There wasn't a lot of sewing going on in my studio this week, but I did finish another "circle of squares" block (block pattern can be found here). It's such a fun block to sew and uses 8 small scraps and a few strips of background fabric.
January is purple month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I once took a class with a quilting teacher who would not let us use the word "purple". We had to say "violet". I was thinking about that as I chose the scraps for this block.
The finished block uses mostly the mid violet range, but I found scraps for the other ends of the colour range to make 2 more blocks.
Here are the "red violet" scraps.
Here are the "blue violet" scraps. I could only find 4 today, but I'm sure there will be 4 more in the bottom of the scrap bag to make one more block.
I pieced this block leader-ender style as I was sewing my 8th block for En Provence. Two blocks made at the same time!
