RSC15-Purple


What a great color to play with for the month of April. I will be linking up with RSC15 HERE and it will be fun to see how everyone has played with their various hues of purple.  These are my Bitty Block houses


And then the bow ties.  I like to start with my smallest blocks to pull out all the bittiest of scraps from that pile first.


Then the larger blocks that need a few more pieces/bigger pieces of scraps.


I just love Sawtooth Stars - these go with my bigger houses for that large project.


And the Woven Heart rounds my block play out.  I only have my Bitty Block baskets to finish up and they are being worked as leader/enders while I work some other blocks. Yes, I get into a block making mood and just go with it.


Just to show what the 'bricks' are - I haven't shown them in any of the other months as the individual piles were boring.  BUT, now they are adding up.  I am making 40 of each color - won't need that many, but it will give me option to play when I lay this all out.


So now this baggy of purple scraps plus some pieces from the FQ tote are gone - well, now blocks which look a lot better than a scramble of scraps.


I am taking one of my 'day trip' adventures and getting some family and grandies time.  Happy Easter

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
