it seems every month when the RSC color changes, I pull out all my scraps, crumbs, squares, chunks and strips and say to myself "oh good- I don't have very much of color XXX."
usually I'm wrong! purple is no exception.... while it's certainly true that I don't have much purple in my stash, I have a bit more than I thought!
I spent one night this week going through my purple drawer, pulling out anything less than ½ yard. I made 2½" strips, 3" blocks, and the rest went into my crumb jar.
I made 25 scrappy (and mostly monochromatic) 9 patch blocks- using Kona white, and a scrappy black center.
I was also able to make 30 4 patches. there are of course many repeats of fabrics in all these blocks, but I do make an effort to make sure there are no 2 blocks alike.
