Purple Birch Tree quilt blocks

This week for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and in the colour purple I decided to work on four Birch Tree quilt blocks.  The Birch Tree pattern is by Amada Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts.  I’ll trim up the blocks once I finish them all.
 

The background fabric that I am using is from a past Rainbow Scrap Challenge Give-away.  In 2014, I won this lovey rainbow of hand dyed fabric called ‘color wheel’ from Colorways by Vicki Welsh.  My plan is to finish a baby birch tree quilt.
 


Also sewed up a few purple leaders and enders.
 


I’m trying to finish up projects, and I think this might be the end of purple scraps for me this month unless I start something new.  I am looking forward to joining Angela's Rainbow finish on January 31st so I spent a little time last evening completing the back for my Paintbox quilt, so I can get it on my long-arm machine.

  1. Ooh, you’re combining several of my favorites - Vickie Welsh fabrics and the Birch Tree pattern from Amanda Jean (I did that in 2015). Your blocks and projects are looking wonderful!

  4. Love the birch trees on the purple, they really stand out. I've been tempted to try them, but not so far. On my Someday list now.

  5. The birch tree blocks are so striking on the purple backgrounds. The paint box quilt has such a nice crisp modern look.

  8. What a super idea! I also won a set of Vicki's fabrics from a recent QOV drive. They would be perfect backgrounds for the birch trees (a pattern I've wanted to make for eons). Oh, happy day and THANK YOU!
