Finishing up with Purple




I have really enjoyed sewing with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for February - purple - and have a few blocks to share from my sewing this week.

I finished up a 10 inch mini fence rail block in purple -


These blocks are sewn slowly together through the month whenever I have a few bits cut at 1.5 x 2.5, and have grown into a colorful group of 8 so far.


I also made two Scrappy Sprouts blocks in different shades of purple.


These join my light blue sprouts, and give a hint of a fun future quilt!


I have to admit that purple is not my favorite color, so I don't have a lot of purple scraps,  but every year I enjoy the RSC purple month anyway!

Love the purple! Your posts are very motivating to me - makes me want to go sew! :)

Purple is one of my favorites, but don't often use them in a quilt-I wear it instead:0 Next month, after you make your mini rail blocks, you should lay them all out for a pic;) love seeing the progress.

Echoing Vicki - I'd love to see your mini rails all together!
I'm a big fan of purple, so this is one of my favorite months - everyone has such pretty blocks to show off!

The rail blocks are so great!

Your project looks great and I love the flower shot. I worked on a purple & green project years ago; had very little scraps left. I meant to do something with them in regards to piecing earlier in the month for RSC and still have not done so lol

Your columbine is gorgeous. I like your rail fence and sprout blocks.

I think you have made great use of the purple you do have. The blocks look great.

Even if it's not your favorite color, you did beautiful blocks, and quite a lot!

Pretty blocks - I'm really loving those rail fence blocks. What a gorgeous quilt they will make.

Great job Diann, all your purple blocks are pretty. And that purple flower is beautiful.

Cathy said...

Well, you sure did a lot with the little bit of purple! Is that columbine from your garden? I used to have some of that variety in mine but they slowly disappeared over the years.

You've got some great blocks from this month. The Sprout blocks are very cute.
