Purple April

The RSC15 color for April is purple 🙂  I finished the first pair of purple broken dishes blocks and I’ve decided, I want to keep this quilt for ME.  Laying out these blocks and mixing up the colors is going to be such fun.

DWM 4-6-15Here’s the first purple block.

RSC15 Purple 1I selected the shirts for a new log cabin quilt and used the Studio cutter to cut a boatload of light 1 1/2″ strips.  Next I’ll be cutting the 2 1/2″ dark strips.  I’m using the gold strips in the middle as my centers.

Totally Finished, Name Changed

So this time the brown log cabin quilt is totally finished, binding, label and all 🙂  Oh, and it’s had a name change to “Cabin in the Woods” per popular opinion of those present at label writing time.

Here’s a pic of the solids from my stash that have gone into the box heading to my daughter in Turkey.  She asked could I send her some solids….how about 6.5 yards of them????  Can you say “stash out”?
