I guess the black cats are fitting for October!
In order to have five purple blocks (which is what I've made of all the other colors), I added a simple square set on point of a pretty print that I found on my trip to Oregon.
Then, a decision had to be made. What scraps would I use for October's blocks - brown, black, or gray? With my gray sashing, that didn't seem like the right choice, and I didn't really want brown either, but how about black and white prints? Directions for this week's block can be found here.
Yes! That will work! I even found a last little bit of
some little penguins with their colorful caps.
It's always so fun to put these on the design wall and start thinking about a layout. I like this ROYGBIV layout, but will need to decide how to make the quilt wider.
More thinking to be done about this one!
Meanwhile, I finished up the two purple Tiny Rails blocks I was working on in September.
Lavendar and dark.
Here's what's happening with these blocks -
I think I will shoot for two more, for a quilt that would measure
about 50 x 50.
I've enjoyed my week of getting caught up - hope you've had a good one, too! See you over at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!
