soscrappy. Each month she focuses on a different color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and each Saturday everyone links up with projects made with that color. Last month the color was pink and all I accomplished (which was actually a LOT) was to press, cut up and organize all my pink scraps. This month, February, the color is purple. I didn't think I had many purple scraps until I went digging through my scrap basket. As you can see from the photo, I actually have quite a few! So then the dilemma was "WHAT purple quilty thing can I make?"
Well...I'm also participating in the Lucky Stars BOM and I'd just gotten the instructions for my February block. So I figured I could just kill two birds with one stone--get my February block made, and make it with PURPLE scraps--what a GREAT idea! So that's what I did and here it is. It actually looks significantly better in real life. I'm thinking I might make it into a cover for one of my sewing machines, so with that in mind, I added more purple--a purple border. Maybe it will have morphed into something new by next week and I can show off the finished product.

After linking to Can I Get a Whoop Whoop, I think that will be all I'm going to do in my quilt studio today, other than cleaning the major mess that has developed while I've been working in here. Time to go practice piano and plan my goals for next week.
