Playing with Scrappy Pinwheels

I've pretty much wrapped up all my purple projects for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I was inspired to make a second Burgoyne block with some purple and green scraps, but now I'm just waiting for the announcement of the March color.

This Burgoyne definitely has me thinking of Spring!  It appears spring weather may be fleeting here in South Louisiana - we've had a week of temperatures in the low 80s already.  I don't care for really cold weather, but I do feel cheated when we jump straight from winter weather to summer temps!

I have no shortage of projects to work on, but I needed something fairly simple to take to the camp this weekend.  I did some prep cutting earlier in the week so I could start assembling the pinwheel blocks I made for last year's RSC.
The pinwheels are assembled into 9-patch blocks.  They will ultimately have plain alternate blocks, but for now I've just laid them out for admiring.  The colors look kind of drab in the picture, but they look much happier in person.

I've had plenty of fun playing with purple scraps this month, but I'm ready for the next color challenge!  Be sure to check out the RSC weekly link-up for more scrappy inspiration.

  2. Burgoyne does feel like spring with the fabric you've choosen. The simple pinwheel block can come together with others and create a great design.

  8. I'd be happy to send you the 9 degree temps here, along with the snow coming tonight and tomorrow (another 2-5 inches). We've already received 8-10 inches of snow since we got here. After 9 straight days of snow in Illinois, before we left, I'm tired of snow, and trying to walk and drive in it.

  15. Love your block in purple and green! You have given me an idea with your 9 patch pinwheels.... I have a few made in various sizes from leftovers and I had no idea what to do with them. Love your idea.
