2016 RSC March Purple and Yellow Week 2


After playing with purple this week, l have nine 6.5" purple butterfly blocks for my column quilt. The 2" HSTs are extras from making the butterflies' wings. A purple Boxy Block made it into the picture. The pattern for this block is on Bonnie Hunter's website. To see what others made with purple, go here Saturday morning.


I'm participating in Sarah's Nifty Nines Sew Along. I'll add these scrappy 9-patch blocks to my collection.


It's H2H time. Hands 2 Help. I'm making 16-patches blocks each month for a Sweet Sixteen charity quilt. I'll add these to my collection.


Making doll quilts has become addictive. This one finished at 19.5" square. I'll donate it to sell in our annual Quilt Show's Boutique.

So wonderful and scrappy. And I love the turquoise border on the doll quilt.

Your butterflies are just beautiful! So happy! I’ve sewn together my bonus HSTs too, but haven’t pressed or squared them. Just threw them in the HST box..... you are so disciplined!!

Sarah said...

Nice projects going on. I love purple scraps!

The purple boxy stars look great. I really had to look because the contrast between the light and the background is so subtle.

You're very good saving your "bonus" HST's - all your purples are lovely!

It's always a pleasure to visit! And good for you for using up those waste triangles!

Love everything on your design wall! Prettiest Boxy Stars I have seen! Usually this block is too scrappy for me, but yours is a controlled scrappy and is perfect to me!
