That 30's Thang blockThe color of the month for the Rainbow Scraps Challenge has not yet been posted ... but the background color of on the blog has recently been updated to a nice shade of purple, so I took a leap of faith, pulled out my purple scraps.

After making all those green and cream alternate blocks, I realized I was missing a couple of the lotto blocks we made in 2006. This one is from Quilter's Cache and is called That Thirties Thing.

For the lotto, we made these paper foundation pieced blocks in red, white and blue and I used the pattern to create a flickr photo tutorial of paper piecing.

I like it as a shaded monochrome ring, too.

I am so glad that you picked up on my subtle hint. Your purple block is lovely. Quilters Cache has so many different patterns to choose from that it can be hard to focus in on one.

I agree that is a great website to find great blocks. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with purple scraps this month!!

You already have a good start - I like the block that you have chosen. I think I see some familiar fabric scraps in there!
