January is PURPLE scraps

Im continuing to cut purple scraps...the pile is goung down...yes! The block on the left had to be unstitched...don't you LOVE ripping out seams?...so I fixed that block and made another. I was missing the pieced corners. 
Made another purple spool...that's it for this color...the spools will be red, aqua, gold, orange, aqua...all colors.
Digging through my box I found this REALLY old piece of fabric. It's probably about 35 years old. I bought it to make a blouse for my niece when she was 4 or 5...she's in her forties now!
I'd say it's about time this one gets used up.


On to more cutting...and babysitting (today is a Henry day!)

I have very little in the line of purple scraps. Would have to cut from stash on the shelf to be able to make blocks like yours with so many pretty purples.

Thank you Karen... I do have a LOT of scraps! I have so many purples that I need to make a quilt just with those.

Yay for Scrap Jar Stars! Yours are lookin' good!

Your Scrap Jar Stars turned out beautifully! Now I'm wondering if I should have looked for some larger scraps so that all of my points could be the same. Not sure...

I had an idea for my scrap challenge blocks and it did not work out. I went through the links and your spool inspired me. I am now making a thimble quilt. It won't use up many scraps but it will be colourful. Thank you for the inspiration.

You're welcome. I thought about the same thing...so many scraps and the blocks just aren't using up enough. But it's a start.
