Im working on a quilt from one of my books by Jean Wells, Through the Garden Gate. It's a great way to use up scraps/ pieces of purple and green. I made the first 16 blocks that she has in the quilt and decided it needs to be MUCH bigger so I plan to make 64 blocks and then I'll see if that will work. I'll be adding a border on but not the one she has pictured in the book. Im thinking a softer border with appliqued purple flowers and green stems wandering around the edges... but I dont want to get ahead of myself. I have lots of projects out there and need to finish a few others first.

That purple quilt is looking so pretty. How did you get so many purple sqs? I've only gotten two letters which means I only have four sqs so far. Wonder how long it will take to get my name at the top of the letter?
Hugs,

I've received three letters so far, so 6 blocks plus 2 extra blocks sent to me from a friend. I'm sure my name is getting up there but not at the top yet... I have A TON of purple scraps. It's something I just never use but seem to collect... how does that happen? LOL

Love the purple and green quilt - my favorite colors. Soon I'll be able to make one, with all the purple squares I'm going to get.
