Rainbow Scrap Challenge column quilt. I have been digging through my scraps looking for all varieties of purple fabric ranging from the lightest shades to very deep dark shades. I did find quite a good stash of purple pieces in my 3.5" strip bin and also in my 3.5" squares stash. The block also requires yellow and I was able to grab some yellow strips that were leftover from making my version of Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice mystery quilt. I love my scrap bins! Pop on over to soscrappy's and check out the links to other participants in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. You will surely be inspired!
Block Lotto and my OMMS this month. They are required to be made in all shades of purple, pink or blue and require a yellow center. I was able to do the cutting for them as well although I still need to cut the background fabric. Doing double duty at the scraps bins is certainly quite a time saver!
The plan for the rest of the day is to finish the butterfly blocks, make peanut butter cookies (that my family is eagerly awaiting) and make fried chicken for dinner. Why can't I just sew all day? :)
