And here's what I came up with -
(I'm so excited that I finally got my camera adjusted so that it photographs purple correctly!)
I don't have a lot of purple, but there's probably enough in there for the blocks I'll be working on this month. I started right in trimming the smallest chunks to make the 1.5 x 2.5 inch rail blocks I've been using as leaders and enders recently. There will be plenty for at least one 10.5 inch block in purple.
I need 25 of these little squares to make a block, but they accumulate really quickly!
Looking through my pile of bowties which were started last year, I realized I had only made two purple blocks, so I stitched up a couple more to add to the collection this week.
Just a little bit so far, but I'm sure there is lots more purple sewing to come!
Sharing at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!
one day I need to do some kind of rainbow quilt from scraps again, I did it once planned with batiks and similar fabrics but really need to do one scrappy and in a totally different way. I keep telling myself I must use up the small bits!
I could probably do 2 queen size quilt just with my purple scraps......yeah it is that bad lol. Love what you did :)
You have been busy!
They look great :) I don't have a lot of purple either....I've made 2 quilts with purple shades over the last few years and am down to a very small pile of what is left of those shades.
Beautiful bow ties blocks Diann.
Me too, I don't have a lot of purple.
but I like yours purple scraps they look so pretty. I'm sure you will make beautiful blocks during February
You have a great collection of purple fabrics, and your bow ties are beautiful Diann.
Oh you have some wonderful purples there. Love your bow ties.
Lovely fabrics! I'm like you not much purple in my stash. Not sure why because I really like the colour!
I have my purples ready for sewing too! I am itching to get started. Your blocks are looking great!
Nice units/blocks to add to the stacks!
Off too a good start. Looks like you have a nice variety of blocks to pull from.
Great purple blocks. I love purple so hope to get many blocks done.
We do surprise ourselves with the fabrics we have. You have a lovely collection of purples for your blocks.
I'm loving those Tiny Rails in PURPLE. (You are probably going to hear that EVERY month but with each new color substituted each time!)
I like your purples a lot! They are so vibrant. Cute little rail blocks. They will make a delightful quilt.
It's raining purple at your house:)
Your purples are so pretty-especially the rails. I hope to get my purples and lavender scraps out today. mary in Az
