Purple-Scrappy Saturday

I finally was able to sort through most of my purple scraps! And since this month is purple, I am also going to be working on my UFO "Purple Passion". I love purple, and had some purple accumulated in my stash. But, when I started "Purple Passion" I found myself needing lots more! So fat quarters, yardage, and pieces were collected. Lots of it was purchased, just to cut up into little 2/12" squares, other ones were gifted to me, and I also gained other pieces from swaps.

For the longest time, I've had most of my purple fabrics stored all together in a big Ziplock storage bag, and the ones that I am using in "Purple Passion" in its own project box. Once in awhile I would need purple for another project, and would grab a few pieces here and there, but, for the most part, they've been separated from the general stash.

This picture is of the pieces that have already been used in , or are not currently associated with "Purple Passion" and are ones that I will be trying to make "April's project" out of.


The following pic, is the fabrics that are being used in "Purple Passion" but I am not sure will be all used up, so all the smaller pieces will be added to my scrap collection, and, will eventually be used in various other scrap quilts.


These pics are of the "Purple Passion" project. I need to make more pieced dog tooth borders out of the triangles, and more 16 patch blocks from the squares. The strips will be part of another border on the outside of the dogtooth one.







So, wish me luck this month in accomplishing something! Last month was a disaster as far as getting any projects done. Although I did lots of cutting, sewing, binding, and quilty things, just no finishes. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing with their purple!

Oh, no, I can't believe it! Now *I* want to make a purple passion quilt! I made a purple mountain majesties several years ago, but all that fabric is in storage in Arizona or California, so I don't have many purples and I'm jealous of both of your stashes!
