Purple 1.5 and Purple Crumbs


I made a couple of rail fence blocks from 1.5 postage stamps and muslin strips. I made a couple of these years ago after I saw a vintage quilt made of these plus had plaid sashing. I saved a pic of it somewhere on my computer.  Anyway, I decided to add these as one of my RSC projects so made one with January's blue/purple theme and March's purple/yellow theme. 



Also from 1.5 inch scraps I made a few 3" spools to add to the pile of 600+. 

And then I made a couple of Purple Crumb Butterflies - a rare breed, indeed.

Beautiful blocks Cathy! The butterfly block seems to be great for using all those tiny scraps. Love also the mini spools. I am curious to see all those 600+ blocks together. Happy weekend!

Oh, I LOVE those crumb butterflies! (I love them so much, I just went and downloaded the pattern. Oh, good. Another project for me to obsess over...)
Your other blocks are fun, too! Also in an enabling sort of way...

Anyhoo, I love ALL of your blocks! Great way to use up those tiny bits and pieces!

Love the butterfly blocks. Just thinking about 600 plus blocks makes me want to quit before starting. You have tremendous perseverance to keep going with thos spools.

Wow! I love all your purple scrappy blocks. I turn my smallest scraps into hot pads/pot holders for gifts. People seem to love them.
