This month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is purple. Yay! My favorite color and perfect for February, as Mardi Gras is February 13th and New Orleans Mardi Gras colors are purple, green and gold!
I dug around in the 1.5 inch strip bin and found enough purple strips to make some 49-patch blocks. I guess I could call these Trip Around the World blocks, or Postage Stamp blocks - but to me they are just humble one-patch blocks.
Inspired by a photo of a table runner on Diane Knott's Instagram feed, I pulled some green blocks and started dreaming about Mardi Gras decorations of my own. I don't think I'll have time to make a table runner this month, but it's fun to think about!
We're at our camp this weekend. Our hot water heater at home is dead, and the plumber can't replace it until Monday. The weather forecast calls for clouds and rain - perfect weather for hand-stitching quilt bindings. And at least I can take a hot shower!
Linking up with the RSC Saturday linky - lots of scrappy purple inspiration!
