It's a PURPLE-y Kind of Month!


PURPLE is our color for April's Rainbow Scrap Challenge ... and of course I'm delighted!   It's one of those really delicious jewel colors that just trips my trigger! =^..^=


And I think it makes a really delicious Soul Searching block too, don't you????

From the deep dark PURPLES.....


To the more red VIOLETS......


They are all yummy to me!  
And I especially like them all mixed up scrappy-style to add sparkle!

Auditioning for the Soul Searching block :)

My task of washing up my stash for the RSC color was made much easier this month because I had already washed many of my PURPLE fabrics for the recent Diamonds are Forever workshop at Guild -


I sewed up a few of these fun blocks last night just because I love seeing these colors play together so much!!!

What a lovely potpourri of strips!!!!

And while I had all the PURPLES out, I chose my fabrics for this month's Hootie block....


I'll let him shine in next week's RSC report :*)


And can it be a coincidence that my current socks project is PURPLE?
I think Angela is reading my mind! *grin*

Are you playing in PURPLES too?  
Please share at SoScrappy's RSC linky party HERE!

Or are you just enjoying some of the lovely PURPLE blooms that are bursting forth this spring?

  6. Your purple projects are a delight to see! Should Searching is on my list of projects to do, are you making the blocks the same size as the quilt in the book?
