Scrappy Saturday

We are trying to use up our purple scraps this month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Purple is not a colour I "know" and rarely buy yardage of it. But in my scrap bags there are lots of tiny pieces that friends have shared with me.

I am making my Squared Away sampler blocks in a 5" size, so the pieces I am using up are 1.5" squares and strips. The February block pattern is called "Wishing Ring". I made four blocks in purple scraps for my sampler and enjoyed thinking about the things I am wishing for while making these wishing blocks.
To see more purple projects, hop over to the RSC linkup.

I buy lots of purple. Love these blocks!! I really like the fabric placement you have used. Is this RSC project #25, or 157?

What a wonderful range of purples...I especially love the block that is flirting with brown.
