Yesterday, I shared this block, designed for Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine's Everything Old is New Again Challenge.
The blocks this month are supposed to be inspired by the traditional Rail Fence block.

After my Curvy Rails block was made and posted, I wondered if maybe it wasn't quite ready for prime time. Part of it was my choice of fabrics. I also wasn't sure about the circle in the center, which I liked in my drawing, but not so much in my block.
I liked the symmetry and wondered if I could accent that symmetry a bit more. Here is the revised design.
I thought it might be a fun block to make in many colors for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I also thought it would be a fun block to hand piece ... and so here is my plan for Slow Sunday Stitching today.
I created templates for hand-piecing a smaller, 8-inch block, cut up some purple scraps and grabbed my hand sewing kit. After I run some errands this afternoon and make a start on cleaning up the garden, I'll be good to go.
I'm joining the lists for Oh Scrap! and Slow Sunday Stitching.
