Purple is hard to resist

It's always fun to shift my attention to a new color of scraps at the beginning of each month.  Purple was especially fun to dig into for some reason.


This Hello Birdie block was just too cute to resist.  I kept seeing these all over the Internet - a free Riley Blake pattern.  I was seeing the birds on Facebook and on blogs, so I caved in on Wednesday morning and made one using the purple fabrics I already had laying out for other RSC blocks.  My original thought had been to make them using 30s prints, and that might still happen some day. 


And of course since I had a lot of sewing time this week I have plenty of other purple things to show for all that sewing time.  There are Nanci's Stars (3), elephant, Falling In Love, Happy Cats, Twinkle Star, and Bricks (4) - all with a purple focus. 

After this morning's quilt guild meeting I hope to cut the pieces for the other 4 Falling In Love heart blocks, and maybe a couple more elephants or birds.

Cute bird pattern! I have a bird quilt on my list for one of these days - I'll have to look for that one. Lots of pretty purples in your sewing room this week!

I saw this cute bird also this week and add the idea to my to do someday list. Love your version Sara. All the others purple blocks are also beautiful.

You have made a great purple start already. Such a cute little birdy, bet you won't be able to stop at just one.

Oh, I LOVE that little birdie! Thanks for the heads-up - the pattern is printing now! (It's never too late to start a new RSC project, right?)

Hmmm, going to look for the bird pattern now. It is so cute. I started Twinkle Stars years ago when Angela did the column quilt and only made one block, although I think I set aside fabric for several more. Must look for them. Too many projects, so little time (and too many distractions).
