A Little Bit of Purple and Yellow

After a long weekend trip to visit my mom in Phoenix, I came home itching to get back to my sewing machine, so among other things this week, I stitched up a few new blocks for my RSC projects.

I love 4 patches and 16 patches!  Sometimes simple patchwork is just what I need.


This is my favorite purple so far - I have enough to use some more of it in March!


My 16 patch collection is growing!  It definitely needs more yellow.


Time to get back to the sewing machine.  See you all over at SoScrappy for Scrap Happy Saturday!

  3. Simple but effective. It looks good up close and at a distance.

  4. I like it. And you're right, seeing the pattern develop is very satisfying. I also like that the 16 patch uses two fabrics, instead of my usual crazy amount of prints, so it rests. LeeAnna

  8. 16-patches make a great quilt; I made one for my uncle last January and was so pleased with how it turned out, just blues and greens.
