Purples Are Coming To An End

Well, it is close to the end of March and almost time to hang up the purple scraps again till next year! I barely made a dent in my bins ( I think I have said that for every color so far this year!!).

But it has been a fun month full of purple scraps with touches of yellow. If you haven't jumped in and joined the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC 2016), what are you waiting for? I have to admit, I was on the fence for 3 years and finally joined this year. I wish I would have done it sooner, but it's never to late to get in on the action. Angela at SoScrappy picks out the colors for the month and we pick out the blocks we want to make. It couldn't be easier! So, after you read my post, hop on over and check out all the other purple blocks that were made this week.

First off, here are the 13 Centennial blocks I made last week. I got carried away when I cut these out. I cut enough to make 18 blocks, but stopped myself at 13 because I only need 10 each month! I love these little gems!

I made 4 "That Thirties Thing" blocks using my Selvedge bin. No dent was made during this process! LOL!!

 

Today I made my 2 Flower Blocks. I still have to appliqué the flowers and that should be finished next week. I am happy to say I have made all of the blocks I needed to make this month for this challenge. Woohoo!

I also made 2 more "microwave bowl Potholders" that I can't show till next week and these 2 cute Mickey Mouse earbud holders! It is for my grand niece's 4th birthday. She will be making her first trip to Disney World this summer and I thought this would make a cute little money holder, or to hold her treasures! I can't wait to give it to her! I couldn't decide what color to make, so she will be getting one of each!

 

I hope everyone has a safe and blessed Easter weekend.

..........Sew till next time............

I love your blocks. You've done so much this month. I had a few purple scraps, and almost used them all. Hope to get a colour I use often next month. The Mickey pouches are so sweet. I'd like to make one myself. Did you have a pattern?

The flower blocks are awesome even without the flowers. And your Thirties Thing blocks with selvages are terrific!
