Scrappy Saturday - Purple

It's a mess in my sewing room. I don't even want to go in there. There are purple scraps as far as the eye can see (maybe that's an exaggeration?!) 
The first week of each month is spent getting organizing for the new colour of the month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. It's a good practice to keep, and really helps me to keep the bits and pieces organized for the various scrappy projects I have on the go.
We haven't played in the purple bin for over a year, and the scraps are out of control. It seems as fast as you clear out them out, they just multiply and fill up the bins again! 
If you were sitting at my sewing machine, and you stood up and peeked over the top of the machine, this is what you would see. I am strip piecing 1" purple and neutral scraps to make 9 patch blocks for Omigosh
So cute!

  1. I'm suppose to be sandwiching quilts, but I dumped my purple scraps, too. Almost looks like your pretty pile.

  3. I didn't know you were making the Omigosh quilt - I think it is really neat but do not know if I will ever make it myself - I'm just involved in too many projects right now!!

  4. Those little nine patches are adorable! I love the nine patch anyway, and the thought of those little bitty ones makes me giddy! It's definitely on my bucket list!

  11. Isn't purple delicious. It was one of the first colours I sorted out for this project and I'm glad we have got to it. I'm getting so much more organised with my fabrics because of doing this sampler.

  13. Omigosh for sure! I can't believe the finished size of those blocks! You must have miles and miles of paired purple and light fabrics stitched.
