Just in time...

a few evenings this week were pleasantly passed in the sewing room. I finished up my purples, just in time to check Angela's blog to see that the COM for April is orange.
 
orange is very meager in my stash, but I recently added about 4 FQ's in anticipation of this month's color. I'm excited to play with some new fabric!


the block for this months Column-Along was the butterfly. he just wasn't singing to me, and I knew that I would never embroider antennas on him to make it look more like a butterfly, so I reverted to the trusty old 16 patches.

lots of purples with some dots of yellows. I love it! (oh, I almost forgot! can you see the BH mystery quilt, Allietare, on the chair? it's all pieced and sewn together; just needs the borders.)

and for those who want to know, here are the Kona purple and yellows that I used in these blocks: regal, amethyst, midnight, bright periwinkle, crocus, mulberry and thistle. buttercup, maize and canary were the yellows.

Great blocks! The little pop of yellow is wonderful.

LOL. That's too funny when we have to buy fabric by color for a project that was meant to use up scraps. I am in the same boat. Yep, it's always fun to work with some new fabric.

There is the pull to stay with the group, but the more insistent pull to do your own thing. I like the patches blocks with lights and darks.

There seems to be a push for quilters to go out of their comfort zone, but we have to know ourselves and our limitations, whether it's time or talent! Better done than sitting in a box forever!

I love the inclusion of the yellow squares in random places. Very fun and colorful blocks.

Sometimes you just have to "do your thing" and know it will work in the project.

Your 16 patches are great! I love the pop of the yellow square in each one. They're going to be great with the rest of the sampler columns!

LOVE the little pops of yellow in your 16-Patch Columns!! Your Allietare looks GREAT casting its rosy glow. I'll be looking forward to seeing it in its completed state. Hopefully SOON!!

The 16-patch rows look so nice with the sparks of yellow. The altiarre is rich looking. Enjoy your new fabrics, what could be better.
