This originally started out as a way to make a few blocks, see how I liked making them... and Make a few purple scraps in the process. April's RSC color was purple - and yes - I had yardage of purple.... but alas - no scraps. ( I had already used them up Here )
I made a few blocks and was ready to make it into a top - when along came Wrangler Man and said make more!
And so I made more.... and then I realized the Colors were so varied. The boys and I worked on rearranging them, and I was ready to put it into a top ( photo below is not the rearranged edition - i forgot that photo!!) I had used up all the scraps into my Purple Heart block, and I even had made a few framed 9 patches with the leftovers.... I was ON A ROLL I tell you. Big ego boost all around.
And in came Wrangler Man and his math ( dumb math) and he says:
"That is not big enough to keep me warm"
And so... out of the goodness of my heart,,, and the promise of chocolate
I made more blocks
And Last night he said -
Go ahead - put it into a top, but ADD a border !
Sometimes it is NOT in your best interested to try to educate your family about your passion... and sometimes - they really do listen!
Now I need to finish up the new scraps that I made, into a few more Framed 9 patches and
I ! WILL! BE! DONE! with Purple for April.
PS - the color value of this quilt sure has changed a long the way
