Scrappy Organized / Friendship Quilt Along Block 7

Happy Funday Monday!  I got block #7 done from  WebFabric's Scrappy Organized Block of the Month.  These quilt patterns also belong to Moda's Friendship and Signature Quilt Alongs.
This is Block #7 by Barbara Brackman.




My dark, medium and light fabrics are cut and ready!

First step - sew light and dark rectangles.

So I'm stitching along, chit chatting with my Funday friend Kathleen, and not paying attention to how I'm stitching on the purple squares.  Then, I complain to her that I don't like how there isn't much color in these pieces.  No wonder, as I lay them out, it's clear that I did six out of the eight pieces wrong! 

Oh No!  This is what I get for not paying attention to which side I stitch on.
Back to cutting.   I had enough extra dark blue and cream to make more rectangles, but not enough extra of the purple, so I reverse-sewed a bunch of the mistakes to resew correctly onto the new rectangles.

This is better!
 The rest of the block went easy.

Stitch together the rectangles into four block pieces.

Block pieces ready to sew.

Rows sewed together

Finished block #7.

Happy Stitching!!
