Purple String Appliqued Flower BlockThis post may contain affiliate links which won’t change your price but will share a commission.
I am continuing to work on my string pieced applique flower blocks. I just finished up my purple block for this month’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I never used to like purple that much but anymore it is growing on me.
Notice how the white string is very noticeable in the photo, when I was string piecing it I didn’t notice this. So many times you can really see things like this when you take a photo. A black and white photo will really show the light and dark fabrics in a block
Purple String Appliqued Flower Block
Here is a closeup of the raw edge applique that I did. Using coordinating fabrics makes it easy to design blocks and a quilt.
The post wouldn’t be complete without showing all the blocks so far. You can also see some of the other blocks I have made using purple quilt fabrics.
We are off to the lumber store this morning……Builder Bob will start working on a deck in a couple weeks and tomorrow is the last day of a great sale on wood. He will be sorting the wood for 125 good boards…..this will take a couple hours. The wood will then be taken to the job site and I’ll make him take me to lunch. Enjoy your day!

Your flower blocks are just beautiful! Hope you don't get too many splinters sorting through all those boards. Have a great lunch!
Looking good. I love the way you appliqued the purple flower. When I first saw it, I thought of pleated petals but it's just the stitching. Pleasant surprise!
Connie, how did I miss these?!! They are just so original and charming. What a fab way to show the colors. LeeAnna Paylor lapaylor.blogspot.com
Love your flower blocks!!! A beautiful rainbow of colors…just like the perfect garden!
Connie, it seems like a fair exchange to me–a couple hours sorting wood for lunch. Wait, maybe you deserve dinner too!!!?
The purple block looks great! I don't think the white strip looks out of place at all. Plays nicely with the others. Pictures are funny.
I really like the variety in all the blocks….these are so awesome!
Love the block! Have a blessed Easter.
These are really pretty. You will have a real big garden by December!

Another beautiful flower; they are going to look stunning together in your quilt.
These flowers are going to look fantastic in a quilt! I love the variations in design in the hsts in each one!
It's impossible to resist put the blocks together on the wall, isn't it. (I did the same this morning with one of my ongoing rainbow scraps projects.) Your flower quilt will be lovely!
