Purple 4.5


I worked with my purple 4.5 scraps this weekend and I made 2 chevron blocks to add to last year's 2 blocks.  I'll sew them together for one purple row of a quilt. 

I made a few flying geese.  The "rules" I'm using for these is that the main part of the goose is the color of the month and if the color is a secondary color I use primary colors for the sides.   Not sure what I will do with these. I'll see how many I end up with at the end of the year. 


And finally, there's these purple 4.5 inch things.  I've seen various layouts for these. 

And that's about it for the purple 4.5 scraps.  Now on to the 1.5 scraps and crumbs.

You've got such a nice mix of darks and lights. It really makes a lively bunch. What are those fascinating things? I'm sure they will become something interesting. Good going!

I love that you make a variety of parts and then figure out what to do with them later.

So many pretty blocks, but the chevrons are my most favorite by far.

You seem to have the best organization and plans for your scraps! I love those chevrons! Do you have a whole quilt of them yet, or are you slowly collecting them in lots of colors?

You must have a good collection of purples in your scrap boxes - the last photo of your blocks is very much like a quilt designed by Kathy Doughty, very effective!

You have a lot of purples! I like the last little block - it will be fun to see what layout you choose.
