Saturday in purple..... a day late.

I worked last night on making a bunch of the orange peels while watching a movie with the hubby. I think I need to cut a bunch more for working on this week until the month changes. I was thinking about 30 a month in a set color..... oh well. I can always cut them and plan to work on them this summer while traveling.
I've also been working on some purple l&e four patches and have this many completed so far this month. I think they might end up being set as 16 patches.... but we'll see.

I hope to do some more purple sewing the next few days... as there are still a bunch of scraps hanging around waiting to be used.

I did get my butterfly quilt top completed... until I noticed a boo boo on the inner border. That will wait to get picked out in a week or two while my parents are visiting. It will be something to do while sitting and chatting with Mom.

Tonight I plan on doing some more hand applique and finishing off this Midget block for my Tiny Tuesday post.

Head on over to SoScrappy's blog and see what other purple projects people are working on. Also visit Quilter Kathy for Slow Down Sunday and see what wonderful hand work is going on in blog land this weekend.


  1. Hey Deb - I think this month you have to call them grape peels!

  2. Love your midget for this week -- it isn't one of the blocks I made but it looks like fun. Enjoy your orange applique blocks -- so nice to have something ready to go.

  3. Pretty purple peels!
    Enjoy every slow stitch!

  4. Your purple peels are just precious! Love seeing all the purple and your appliqué.

  6. Love the orange peels. Great to have some four patches around.
