Thanks. :) This is one I really like.
I originally cut a rust/orange color fabric for where the purple is. It was a shade I just didn't like when I laid my blocks out all together...I had used it in one other block and it jumped out to me in a bad way (that one won't be in my finished quilt). Anyways since I had already cut fabrics for the remaining blocks I am making I had to re-cut. I might find that fabric in one of my other envelopes too...
CarrieM ... don't turn away from the one you don't like, yet! I had a couple like that in the FWS that I thought would just jump out and grab everyone. I waited til I was placing all the blocks, and still included them as with the others surrounding and choices as to what was next/near it, it made such a difference than when it was by itself. And guess what? ... once it was all quilted, I hardly see them!! What was this fear about that they'd jump out and grab everyone? Silly me!

At any rate, Carrie, it is indeed a lovely block. :thumbup: I really like the purple sawteeth around the edges. The block that shouts at you just may be the block that gives the pizazz the total quilt needs.
