And today is the last Saturday of purple. I don't know where April went. I did get quit a few sampler blocks done this week.
I've been learning how to put fabrics together that I wouldn't normally put together. Things are to be scrappy so you use what is in your scrap bins whether they are a perfect match or not. I think it stretches the creativity genes, which is good.
The block on the bottom right is a cat. I need to embroider the eyes and whiskers yet.
Head on over to SoScrappy and check out what others have done with this color.

It's been a long time getting these blocks done. April has had a mind to throw a lot of other things at me and keep me from sewing quilt blocks. My granddaughter got accepted to Job Corps and they gave us only a week to get ready. And then I have two graduation quilts (that aren't purple!) The tops are finished, just basting and quilting yet to do.
I'm loving how this quilt is turning out. Realizing I need to take more time to match the squares up as I sew the rows on
Wasn't sure I'd have enough different 1 1/2" strips for this block. Tried to start with the blue-purples and work my way to the red-purples. This color is like the Teal color of last month......lots of variations
My thee 6 1/2" blocks. Not many to show for the third week of the month.
Hop on over to SoScrappy and see how other quilters have used the majestic purples.
