A Thrill on Blueberry Hill

The June Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is purple.  My favorite color, by the way!

I started the month by making some Greek Square blocks.  I had a big batch of purple scraps from one project and another, so I was happy to put them to use.  The dark purples are not quite as dark as they appear in the picture, but I didn't want to tweak the color too much and lose all that luscious purple-ness!

Those blocks have been hanging on my design wall a good part of the week, and the more I looked at the blocks, the more they reminded me of blueberry pie!  You know where this is going, right?  I found this pie recipe and it sounds delicious!

Of course, being a New Orleanian, I can't think of blueberries without thinking of Fats Domino singing "Blueberry Hill".  

Have a great weekend sewing and don't forget to check out the other Rainbow Scrap Challengers!
