Purple block #7
I have a hard time using large scale print. When I look at a block it is all I see. I did read that a scrappy quilt needs the variation in size of print. If I space them around the quilt hopefully it will not be all I see.
I like the blue with the purple. I just made a doll quilt in these two colors.
The purple and blue is a leftover block from the quilt. I just set it in and and really like the leaf fabric with the cream background.
The fabric with the grasses reminds me of the rushes and cat tails we have out in front of the lake. I just had little itsy bits of this fabric and I love that it found a place in this quilt.
I like that I have been able to use my polka dot fabrics in this project and it is working. It gives the piece the playfulness that it needs.
I had a nice blend of lights and darks in purple. I really don’t have that much purple in my stash but I found enough to make a second block and not have it be all the same fabrics. MORE Happy Scrappiness!!!!
Here it the doll quilt I made last month using the purple and blue fabrics.
I have been able to use a number of the kitty fabrics I have. I like that they are small scale because these little blocks are 1 inch finished.
I shot this photo last night before the purple block was finished. I will need to work on some yellow ones today or tomorrow but first I am jumping over the my AAB block so I can try to get them in the mail.
