January is Purple


Again this year Angela is hosting  Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017.  Purple is the rainbow color for January.  This challenge is very inspiring seeing all the rainbow projects everyone is making with their scraps.  I have two different blocks I plan to make each month.  I am sure there will be other rainbow blocks as the year goes on.
The first block I am making is orange peels.

These blocks are a Moda Bake Shop pattern called A Ritzy Cracker Quilt.  If you want to take peek at the completed quilt you can see it here.


My plans are to make a quilt for a graduation gift.  Since the color choices for this Teaberry Star quilt is purples and blues.  I have made the purple stars.

Pat Sloan is hosting a winter Solstice block challenge.  These are my blocks for the challenge.  I plan to use them for QOV.

 This is what I am sewing on at the moment.  It will be a prayer quilt for a young father with cancer.  He will be going through treatment most of 2017.

  1. You've been busy. I've been working on the Be Attitudes blocks this week. I'm slow, but, they are great hand work to take places.

  2. You have done an excellent job with your selection of blocks! The quilt for the cancer patient is perfect because he will be turning the corner to good health at the end of this course of treatment!

  3. All your blocks look great, always hard to make a quilt for someone who has cancer. I know he will appreciate your loving kindness in making him a quilt as he can remember that he is not alone in his journey.
