Purple Scraps

I got some purple scrap sewing done on Saturday. These are only part of the 600 purple triangles I need for Roll Roll Cotton Boll. This step is going to take for every. They are so very cute. Many little piles of many little triangles. I got to use some very old and special fabric, and some not so old. One of the fabrics was in a maturity dress I made some 15 years ago.

I have added this to SoScrappy Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012. I am just loving this challenge. I have big news today. My quilt Bouncy Ball got a 2nd place at Quilt Canada in the National Juried Show. I just found out about it and had to tell you. It is the Greek Square blocks I started to make at the beginning of this challenge. I loved it so much I kept sewing till it was done.

My box of purple scraps. I have many lovely purple batiks in here still to use up. Next I will work on a block or two for my Farmer's Wife sew-a-long. I must call it Forester's Wife.
