Some purple bow ties

Angela posts a colour every month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and this month's colour is purple. I thought last month's colour would be purple, so while I was waiting for Angela's post I jumped the gun and made one at the beginning of August. It may even have crept into one of last month's posts, but here are all my purple bow ties so far; both for August and September!

I wasn't planning on doing brown or black, but I do need to make a few more blocks to get a satisfactory layout, so maybe grey will creep in next month too, as well as some of the colours I've already used.

I have another scrappy project on my design wall at the moment:

No planned colour scheme here!
4.5" shoo fly blocks for the 2019 Leaders and Enders challenge organised by Bonnie Hunter. If you're interested in the challenge, or just in the concept of leaders and enders click here.

Another scrappy project that's just come off the wall:

Overlapping Octagons is ready to be layered and quilted.

One Monthy Goal for September

September is a short month, so here's a short post with my goal.

inspired by a quilt (In Dialogue with an Anonymous Quilt, p.18) in Roderick Kiracofe's book "Unconventional and Unexpected, American Quilts Below the Radar 1950-2000"
Overlapping Octagons should become a quilt. This is my first make at the Unconventional and Unexpected QAL hosted by Sujata Shah.

Quite a few other things are in progress, so here's hoping!
