Crossing Purple Off the List



The purple and green blocks are officially sewn together. I went out looking for a nice purple and green border fabric but couldn't find just the right combination. The only purple and greens together tended toward lime when I had a more sage variety in mind. I couldn't find a nice flannel for the back either, so I might use random 10 inch squares of green instead. I've got a lot of greens hanging around for an Irish chain that hung around in the planning stages but never made it any further.
I also finished off the fabric covered folders from a couple of weeks ago. They just needed zig zag stitching around the edges to be officially finished.  When that was done I was still having fun hanging around the sewing room so I started digging out old projects and organizing a bit.  I've been having fun with the rainbow scraps, but after the new job came along, I started dropping things along way.  I've still got blue crumbs up on the design wall and all the blocks made for an adorable red nine patch on point.  Now that I've got the purple and green top all sewn together I might spend some time this week working on those. 
Tomorrow is the AP Environmental test.  I've got 72 students who should be showing up bright and early.  I have a griddle and pancake fixins all set to go for breakfast before the test.  I'm thinking after that things should start to settle down.  The Bio test is still a week away, but they are in review mode.

The purple and green blocks look great. And I'm sure you'll be pleased to have a bit of time to catch up on your other projects too. Good luck with your testing.

Anxious to see what you come up with for the purple and green border. I love a pieced border. Sandi

Who says the purple and green quilt needs borders? I kinda like it just the way it is. Why not just bind it and call it done?
