ScrapHappy Saturday - Pack up the Purple

It has been a very short purple month.  I feel a bit behind after being out of town last weekend.  I thought I was done with all of the violet blocks for Rainbow Scrap Challenge Dear Jane until I pulled them out to snap a photo and found one of the corners still in need of a bit of attention.  The applique portion was done on the road trip last week but there hasn't been any machine momentum since then.  I still need to do some trimming to size and add the sashing, but the purple Janes will definitely get done in February.  Now to take care of those scraps!  There are more now than there were when the month started:(
 How have your purple plans gone this month?  Still plugging along?  Use the linky below to share your progress.

Clearing off the table to do all those bindings I did this month, put a damper on me getting the purple blocks done. I will get caught up though. It is suppose to still downpour all day long today again. So maybe I will get some more sewing done. Plus I still have 5 more days next week.

Purple has been a great time. Hope to finish my purple mile a minute top today with borders and MAYBE get it ready for machine quilting. This is going to charity to make some little girl smile!

Wow great looking Jane blocks. I have stalled on Dear Jane. Maybe I will do it next. I have made a guess as to our next colour for March. I maybe wrong.

I made a purple block and I caught up with a pink block, since this was the first month I've participated. I wish I had managed to work up my purple scrap bin, but too many other things in the way. lol

Your DJ blocks are just gorgeous! Now I am wishing I had started my DJ with rainbow colours!!

Hmmm... I am late to the party, but I am thinking I might just have to bust out some scraps so I can end the year with a cool rainbow quilt... :-)

You really made an amazing amount of beautiful purple Dear Jane blocks. I'm looking forward to March. I will really have to dig hard through the scrap bin. I don't use much orange, but I'm sure there is some in there.
