More Purple Stuff

  As promised, here is more purple stuff for this month's Scrappy Rainbow Challenge:

First a bunch of Prismatic Echoes blocks using 3" strips and a purple wonky star -- I "borrowed" this idea from Ivani last month but I'm not sure if there's an actual pattern.

And then I decided to make some Hillside Houses using some hand-dyed fabrics I won from Vicki Welsh recently along with a little stash of other hand-dyes and snow-dyes I've accumulated from other sources.  Since the first house is purple, I think it qualifies for March.

the forest so far

 For this year's scrappy rainbow, I've got three things going. First and foremost is the Fancy Forest using Vicki Welch's fabulous hand-dyes.  Here's the forest so far, including this month's purple blocks:

 I also did a few block lotto blocks which happened to be purple, too:
Next Saturday, I should have the other two purple projects done and photographed...

Quilt Orphan Adoption -- Pattern Giveaway!

 Quilting is more fun than Housework

Cynthia is spearheading her annual orphan giveaway, and I have some more patterns up for grabs -- 
let me know if you're interested in any of them, and I'll ship them off.  I'd prefer to ship to the U.S., but maybe if you beg/whine a little...

First is "A-Mazed" from A Quilter's Dream.  I made a small one in red batiks.

 Next up is "Tapas" -- haven't touched it and decided it's not on the list for me

 This apron pattern is one I helped edit, and C&T was kind enough to send me a copy. 

 Finally, these are 4 quilty greeting cards -- you create a little card, and the envelope is provided.
