Spinster Quilt - A wrench and a wife

You know what will throw a wrench into your plans?  That's right.  Rain. Rain will throw a wrench into your plans.  You may also think that this bears a striking resemblance to the Churn Dash block. Be assured that you are hallucinating.  There is simply nothing alike between the Churn Dash and the Wrench, I mean, the Wrench has a center that doesn't match the background.  This is completely different.

Contrary Wife
I have to admit I raised an eyebrow and asked, "Are you sure you want to call it that?" when I came across the Contrary Wife block. It seems a little too easy to call a woman who has her own opinions "contrary" and therefore be able to dismiss those opinions as being those from a contrary person.  Look, I don't like people who make it a point to disagree with everything I say, but voicing an opinion is not being contrary.  (Although I've spent time with people who have to disagree with everything I say; I don't make that mistake twice.)  Anyway, I've decided to make the Contrary Wife block purple because purple is the color of royalty.  I don't think anyone can be more contrary or strong-willed than royalty - at least based on the movies I watch. I would also like to point out that Michelle Obama's favorite color is lavender - which would make this the strong wife block.
