September Color Challenge

We're heading into fall and since this is my favorite time of year I want to be outside as much as possible. That means the next few blocks are easy peasy quick sews.

September's color is red violet. Think purple with a red/pink tinge to it. Here's the block!

Get your free pattern here! It will be available for free through June 2019, at which point it will be bundled with the other blocks and settings and sold as a full pattern. Settings will be released in December.

Blog Hop

Don't forget to visit the other bloggers. A few of the bloggers have designed their own block for you and they have been pretty great so far. You won't want to miss them.

The Prize

Phat Quarters is this months sponsor.

Make up something in red violet this month and you could win this gorgeous selection of Art Gallery fat quarters.

Piecing Tips

 I didn't have a lot of red violet on hand, but I did have this fabulous piece. By fussy cutting I was able to pull out the red violet sections and use them in the block. Don't ignore those multicolored pieces in your stash!

When sewing the units together I pinned at the seams and at the end to make sure my pieces didn't need to be trimmed.
