Purple is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This is one of my RSC projects I experimented with last year and am continuing on this year. For the blocks I used scrap "chunks" - pieces at least 8.5 inch square. I use the RSC color of the month plus red and brown chunks (my constants) to make my blocks. Don't ask me why red and brown - I guess it's because I saw the most chunks in the milk crate of chunks in those colors. I stack four pieces right sides up and make 3 free form circular cuts. Then I re -stack the cut pieces in no particular order and sew them together again into four blocks then trim each to 6.5 inches for a six inch finished block.
I'm warning you right now that this will be a loooooooong term project because I will only be making one or two sets of four blocks per month and only if I have scrap chunks in the color of the month. Won't that be fun?
And who knows what the final layout will look like. I may keep the four blocks of a set together and sew a sashing in between or not...
With last year's yellow and orange RSC project blocks.
They may just all get sewn together plain and simple. Or maybe some type of sashing will be inserted elsewhere. Or maybe the sets of four won't be kept together and blocks will all be mixed up instead.
Or maybe...the layouts are endless...
