African Violets in the Dark … in August
In August, we are making EIGHT inch Violet blocks in colors inspired by African Violets. Carolyn made this pretty example. Download my directions here:
Our blocks will have:
* Black backgrounds (solid or BOB print)
* Yellow centers (solid or TOT print)
* Flower fabrics inspired by African Violets
The MAXIMUM number of blocks you can make for chances in the drawing is NINE. You may use the same black and yellow fabrics for all your blocks, but the “African Violet” Flower fabric must be UNIQUE for each block.
Ellie found this amazing photo of the many colors of African Violets. If you think you just don’t have any African Violet flower fabrics . . . take another look–click for a larger image.

If dark background quilts aren’t your thing, here’s Carolyn’s Flower Garden Quilt. (Click the link to read more about the quilt and the liberated version of the block that Debbie made).
The wide, light-colored sashings turned the dark-background blocks into a light, airy, modern quilt.
