Last Purple RSC



It has been a very productive month for using up the purple scraps kicking around my sewing room. The pumpkin seed blocks have re-emerged. I don't know why since I thought I was done making those, but I'm working on 6 more to hand applique.

Then 3 scrappy sprouts blocks appeared for my fabric garden.

But then the fun really started!
I cut 125 squares and 20 strips to make another Mad City Mama block. I finally figured out what I didn't like about my first block and had an idea of how to make me like the block more. It's always a relief when a project sorts itself out and I know what I'm supposed to be doing!

Here's the finished purple version. I really like the centre block, and the light purple star corners.  So then I went back to the blue block and started to deconstruct it to remove the yellow pieces and replace them with light blue.

Love MCM. I have the book, will check it out. I missed seeing your blue block but it looks like you have found a formula that will make you happy.

Love the little Sprouts! I like the star you created on the MCM block. It gives a focus point to that block.

What a gorgeous purple block you've made - Mad City Mama is going to be stunning!
Every time I see those sprouts of yours, I want to make some, too. I think that block is on the top of my list for next year's RSC. 8)

Loving all the purple goodness here.
The MCM looks great. You are more patient than I, though, to do that deconstructing!

Mari said...

The Mad City Mama blocks are going to make a great quilt! How smart to do one every month instead of having to do the whole quilt at once! Looks wonderful.

I love the MCM block and your(bean?)sprouts look delicious.

I like the sprouts done in the purples. I don't have much purple fabric. Just never seems to be much available.

Completely understand what you mean about projects sorting themselves out and "making sense" . . . happy deconstructing!
