RSC15 week 17: The Last Full Purple Week.

Each month Angela at Soscrappy gives a colour and some sampler patterns and lots of people round the world use that colour: some to make the sampler blocks, others to work on other projects. This month the colour has been purple. On Saturdays we link up to show one another what we've been making in the last week. As this is the last post his month, here's a round-up of the whole month.


Firstly the two sampler blocks given by Angela:


Carrie Nation
Broken Sugar Bowl





















In addition to the sampler blocks, I made:

Four nine-patches


Four hexagon flowers

and two scissors cases
pattern by Dawn Cornell
for the Moda Bakeshop (19 May 2014)
of which this is one; the other  I gave away without photographing it first! I was so glad I'd met the deadline, I wrapped it, packed it, took it to England, and it wasn't until I was on my way back to the Netherlands that I thought that I had maybe forgotten to take a photo!

I have also been quilting my Optical Illusion Quilt, which is 50% purple, and has 95% purple quilting thread! In my book, that counts as purple! All that's left to do is sew down the binding; at last I can pull the purple thread out of my machine!



I'm linking up to Angela at Soscrappy for
RSC 15


Happy Sewing

Marly.

you have been busy! love that little scissors case. If I thought I would take the time to put my scissors in a case I would make one but alas it would probablly lay in the bottom of my sewing case forlorn and lonely.

Great job with all the purples. Your Optical Illusion quilt is wonderful!

Angie said...

A wonderful month of purples! I especially like the purple hexagons, as I have had hexies on the brain lately. Thanks for the pointer to the scissor case pattern, I might just have to make one!
