Our color plan for August was "the hazy purple of a dawn sky with hints of evergreens." I made a set of blocks in purple and green prints, but when I got them up on the wall with the rest of my blocks (including a set in purple from March), there was just too much purple. Fortunately, the August block was a very easy pattern, so I made a new set in shades of grey, our alternate color choice. You can see my two sets of August blocks in yesterday's post.
I briefly considered joining my blocks together in some way other than the planned columns, but the possibilities that I looked at just looked like a jumbled mess. Rather than adding the grey blocks to the box with all the blocks from previous months, it seemed like a good time to begin joining them together. That was so satisfying that I had to keep going. I now have four sets of blocks stitched into columns, but the columns are not sewn to one another yet. I'm waiting until all the different colors are done before I decide on the placement of the colors. There are still two more sets of blocks to make, red for September and October's color, which I am guessing will be some version of yellow.
