Finally settled on a name for this quilt. It is coming along. I appreciated all the comments about the purple underlining the blocks. As you see I incorporated it in the quilt. Of course, the strips did not come out straight. Will add some purple to those edges before sewing. Now I need my extra purple to arrive to go any further.
Victoria at 15 minutes of play challenged us to come up with a block using an 8 inch square of made fabric. This is what I came up with. I guess I know what my next project will be. Have a couple of ideas, but no plan as yet.
I now have 4 tile blocks. I thought I was done with them, but once I saw the picture I think I will keep going. It is just so much fun to cut and sew. I was a really applique nut, but arthritis in my right thumb kept me from doing it. This seem to be the perfect solution. They each have a recognizable object in them...a heart, tree, pears and bird. CAn you see them? That is part of the fun too.
