"PURPLE"

          Purple at one time was my favorite color....but as I've gotten older I realize that it was really my 2nd favorite, after RED!    

          Back in April I had decided that 1 of my color bins of fabric needed a good clean out whether it be cutting it up and using it, selling it, or giving it away.   You may remember that I made these 16-1/2 inch blocks one afternoon.
I'd found a blog that picked a color of the month and they challenged girls to use up one particular color and that month it was purple.   Since I was "in the moment" I made these 4 blocks and promised myself I'd make more......well, that didn't happen.

          Last night I promised myself that this morning I'd work on some more blocks.

I pulled the purple bin out and set aside large pieces of fabric that I hate to cut up into small pieces because they could be used for a pieced backing or a border on a quilt.
This is 7 I have set aside for that.....(maybe)
Then I got to cutting. I cut 2-1/2 inch squares for the star centers, 5 inch squares for the hst's, and then  I threw a few in a little container for "leaders/enders".


  And, last but not least, I laid out in front of those piles,  some fabrics that are too nice to cut up, all are 1/2 yard pieces and I'm looking to sell them on Instagram.....  (if you see anything you like or want a better picture, just send me a message on IG paront1222).                                  Now it's time to start cutting into the kona white and make some stars.

Very nice purple combinations on the star blocks. Good luck with keeping this purple thing going. ;0)
