Purple Haze (4.5 edition)


Purple Dresdens

Wedges on the Dresdens are 4.5 inch pieces.   Each month I make 4 Dresdens on gray - one in color of month, one in color of month plus b/w, one in color of the month plus w/b, one in color of month plus its complement.  I add polka dot centers surrounded by gray rick rack.   I use the EZ Dresden ruler to cut my wedges and I applique to the background. 


Purple is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  With my projects this year I've  been starting with the biggest scrap pieces and then worked toward the smallest pieces, strings and crumbs. 


Purple Chevrons 
4.5 HSTs

Dresdens are a great idea for using up my scraps, but I think I have fallen hard for the HST the most!
