Crocus {March RSC}

I was very excited when Angela announced that the March color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is purple with accents of yellow! Hopefully this month's colors won't make me think about sweets as much as last month's colors did!

Here are all of my purple scraps from the bin:


I really don't have a lot of medium tones, so hopefully the ones that I have can be stretched to work in a few blocks each. I have a very overwhelming pile of darks!

Here are my yellows:


I'm going to have to be a little conservative with my yellows because this is the entirety of my yellow scrap pile. So when my yellow month comes around, I might have to cut into some yardage or buy some fat quarters. Oh the horror!

And like last month, here are my darks, mediums, lights, and accents separated into their respective piles:


From this point forward, I am planning to paper piece everything. I found last month that it was so much easier not to fiddle around with sizes myself and to just use the paper pieced foundations so paper pieced they shall be!

Here are the first two blocks for this month:

#23 - Country Farm, #24 - Country Path

Looking forward to making a few more blocks this weekend!
