Vicki Welsh make me think of irises and crocuses of spring. I used to look forward to them as the first sign of spring when we lived up north. Spring was a short weekend leading to swelter here in Florida, but I enjoy the thought of seasons if not the reality. So pull out ALL your purples. from lightest lavender, to darkest violet, let them all come out to play this month. If you would like to be entered into the drawing to win this package of hand dyed fabrics, just leave a comment on this post. Just for fun, tell me the name and date of the last quilt you finished.
PURPLE! another small representation in my stash... I just finished a quilt last weekend- a scrappy trips, in bright, modern colors. I finished a charity top on Thursday night... thanks for the chance to win!
Purple was the colour of my wedding. I think that's the last time I saw purple lol because there is none in my scraps. I'll dig in the stash. I'm sure I have some.
Completely finished - the binding on the RSC 2014 challenge was finally completed sometime in February. Now to finish up yellow to pull out purple.
I finished a quilt-as-you-go quilt for a friend about 2 weeks ago.
Time to go see what purple scraps I can dig out!
I think I have less purple than I did yellow. I may actually have to buy some fabric for this one! We'll see.
The last quilt I finished was the quilt guild raffle quilt, "Dazzling in Red"...I sewed the binding and hanging sleeve on in Feb 2015. Of my own projects, well, I finished one in in May 2014. I LOVE purple :)
I am just putting the last few stitches in the binding on 'Jubilee' (named for the fabric line used - Jubilee by Bunny Hill). It is the newest charm pattern with FatQuarter Shop and went together so quickly - I have a baby quilt that will be waiting on the shelf.
I need to get some sewing done. I have gotten a lot of cutting done but I am behind on the sewing and blogging. I am having fun with Vickie's hand dyes.
February 9, I finished "January at the Beach!"
I've begun to pull my purples and find the scraps are slim pickings.
I just finished 2 - one was pile of fabrics 2013 skill builder (my first QAYG) and one of my scrap quilts from last year - a pineapple block pattern. Loving the purple!! KaliaContiki@gmail.com
Oh great--I don't have much purple in my stash except as a secondary color in printed fabric. Hugs, Julierose
Purple isn't a color I use a lot of. My dd uses it lots. Because it is her favorite color. I can't remember the last time I finished a quilt completely. It has been awhile.
Looking forward to purple! I finished a yellow and pink baby quilt on March 15, and will be completing my next quilt, bear appliques, today or tomorrow.
I LOVE purple ... Hooray!! Fun month ahead!!
March 23, I finished Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt "Grand Illusion" which I started the day after Thanksgiving. I made it larger than the original pattern so it's 106 x 106. Today, I'm preparing the back and will take it to the quilter tomorrow. What a relief!
Purple is a pretty color. I look forward to finding them in my scraps. The last quilt II finished was March 22 and giving as a birthday gift on March 22. Nothing like finishing it just barely on time.
The Name of the last quilt.... the Super Cool Awesome QOV.... and that is it! I guess this month I ought to try to finish a few more things!
I love purple!
Oh, dear. I think the last quilt I finished was about 20 years ago... (I've got a lot of started quilts, though!)
Morning Star and Friends was the last completed quilt. It was a Christmas gift(2014) for my Mother-in-law that wasn't completed until late January(2015). She liked it. I know what you mean by a weekend of Spring. I live in south Louisiana.
Ready to play with purple - I've already been sorting through the scraps! My most recent finished quilt was Paisley Parade on February 16, 2015!
Those purples would be gorgeous for applique.. maybe some crocuses??? My last quilt finished was called Joshua's Pie, which was a mini that I made for a girlfriend who just opened a wood fired pizza business. I finshed it last sunday, March 22.
Win? Of course I'd like to WIN!!! :o))
Finished? as in completely finished? I finished a version of a Log
Cabin in February. I've been working on mostly small projects since then. Purple will be a challenge, but I actually need a purple baby quilt, so i'll come up with something!
My last quilt was finished in early March this year. It was a crib size Happy Scrappy Houses, a pattern from Bonnie Hunter at quiltville.com I made 12 I spy houses using fabric for every month of the year. It was crib size and donated to charity that has helpled our family for a fundraiser. Haven't heard what it brought.
oh I love purple. It's the color of creativity so I'd love to win!
The last quilt I finished was my art quilt in honor of Georges Seurat, Sunday in the Park, with Cole.

Gorgeous! Purple was the color for our wedding and I still need to make a quilt to commemorate that lovely day 22 years ago! But, instead, I just finished a Halloween quilt!
Oh purple that is such a great Spring color. I just finished a charity quilt on Thursday and a wall hanging called Mirrors last week.
I love purple! This will be fun. I finished the top for the Elephant Parade on Tuesday and the top for the Irish Chain Pinwheel on Friday. Still need to quilt them -- April projects for sure.
Looking forward to purple. Finished? The last top I finished was a plaid exchange quilt, eighty plaid eight inch squares, about two weeks ago. Finished as in quilting - I'm a long-arm quilter so my quilts are always at the bottom of the list. I did finish a baby mile-a-minute in blue around the beginning of November.
The last quilt finished was the pink, lime green and white Hugs and Kisses for my youngest grandgirl's first birthday in early February this year.
Thanks for a chance.
The last quilt I finished was my RSC14 quilt called Pigtails. I finished binding it about March 5. The blocks are Eleanor Burns Pigtail, which is a variation on the traditional snail trail block.
I'm thinking I don't have a ton of this color but I thought that about yellow and was pleasantly surprised so I will pull them out and see! The last big quilt I finished was in February 2015 called Flower Baskets Quilt by Eleanor Burns.
Uh-oh this will be another lean month for me!! I finished a fmq-ing sampler quilt this month - one ufo off the list!
I would love to win some purple for my next quilt - the last quilt finish for me was November - now halfway through a scrappy patch quilt :)
Purple is one of my favourite colours - looking forward to pulling out scraps for the 3 blocks I am doing each month.
Purple. I like the sounds of this, one of my favourites. Last finish was a baby's furry friends quilt which I finished the binding on last night
Thanks for the chance to win these lovely fabrics!
Uh...I can't even remember the last quilt I have finished as it's been months. Yikes!

Purple, purple, purple..... Love it! I finished a quilt for charity this month. Now I need to get busy on my own projects.
Oh my YES I love purple!!!! Can't wait to play with them! I still haven't gotten to my yellows - I've been away from home most of the month, but hoping to get in there and do some yummy yellow scrappyness this afternoon :*) The last quilt I finished was a baby charity quilt for our guild - it was turned in on March 3!
Purple is my favorite color, especially in batiks. I can't wait to get started.
Love the purple for April Hopefully we will see crocuses before too long. The last quilt finished was Modern Cake Plate in February of 2015.
Yay! Purple is my favorite color. My crocuses have already bloomed here in NC. They were so pretty this year. They have been coming up for 15 years.
Just lost the internet connection. I don't think this went through already. Cosmic Nightscape was the name I finished it a couple of weeks ago.
On Monday I finished my Birch Trees quilt for DGS Easton. I also made a pillow. Angela, since there are a couple days left in March to finish our yellow blocks, can I post them tomorrow, belatedly to yesterday's linky? And purple - what a lovely change of pace. You keep it interesting for us! :-)
Noooooo, if I pull out my purples, I'm not going to be able to resist starting my Purple Mountains Majesties! (Oh darn.) I'm putting the binding on a tshirt quilt, so my next finish will be that, tomorrow.
I finished my last quilt at the end of December 2014. It is called "Hipster Space Guitars."
I have just started my yellow. So I will have to move fast and get out my purple. Thanks for the chance to win.
Searched out my purples and I have lots. Last quilt I finished for myself was Sunday Morning from the book Sunday Morning Quilts - currently gracing our bed. Finish lots of charity tops though. Now to finish up my yellows as I was away for much of March.
Purples! Hmm, the last quilt I finished... Does a table runner count? That was my most recent finish. I'd have to check my records to figure out what was the last one before that!
I just finished a quilt that I will be giving to my sister. I haven't named it. I am terrible about naming quilts. I finished it just last week though. I love it and hopefully she will too.
Yay for purple!!
Pulled my purples today and have a hard time waiting for the center block. I love purple. The last quilt I "finished" was one for my son's wedding in March of 2013. However, there are plenty more being worked on.
Love purples and seeing what everyone else does, all of the different projects...wow...what a show. Last completed quilt is "Passionate Greys". A few tops finished and in the queue at the LAQ.
Purple is a great color for April. I've only done parts of quilts recently but some of them have been finished as I've donated the tops to my guild's philanthropy group so someone else will quilt it, and then someone else binds it.
I dont have alot of purple either, but I'm learning that it makes a great spash of color in any quilt. My last quilt was finished last Wednesday, Mar 25th, a quick strippy backed with comfy fleece, made to donate to our quilt club charity missions. I blogged about it today.
Summer Nites at the Lake, finished it last week. Purple is a hard color for me.
I finished my last quilt last Friday night. And it was the origami cranes quilt I made as part of the 2014 Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.
Fished as in snuggel up with it finised? lol! well I do have round the world quilt top finished & that's pretty good for me lol!I think that's where all my scraps went & why my rainbow challenge quilt is giving me a hard time lol!
I love purple and have a nice collection of purple scraps.
Finished a Bonnie Hunter Pineapple Blossom quilt top yesterday. Yah. Bragging here. However the last quilt I "finished" was a donation baby quilt that I finished March 6th. Turned it in March 24th at our guild meeting : )
Purple is a lovely colour! Right now I´m all dressed up in purple :)
My latest quilt was finished a couple of days ago, on March 24! A brown samplerquilt.
With 4 granddaughters under the age of 8, I have a lot of purple scraps (lol). I have finished several baby quilts lately.
Love me some purple!
My latest finish was my Scrappy Neutral Spiderweb!
My latest finish was a Jacobs Ladder quilt for my best friend. It's at the quilters as we speak.
Purple is one of my favorite colors and love making quilts with it.
Last finish was "Wild Thing" on March 27. Looking forward to purple scrappy goodness.
I love purple too. The last quilt I finished was my Little Letters quilt on 17 February, or thereabouts.
March 18, 2015. My Honour quilt

It's always great FuN having a chance to WiN...
I've added 10 bow ties to my quilt blocks..this time in PuRPLe.. xox
So how did I manage to miss this post?? I would love to win some of Vicky's gorgeous fabrics.
Ooooh. Do I Ever finish quilts?? Seems like I start a bazillion and never get to the end.
Oh Purple...... lovely purple. Our snow is all gone now, but still no flowers to be seen. I'll have to be content with the colours of fabrics!
I have plans to make me purple blocks to finish one of last year's RSC projects, so this is perfect for me. My last finish was Then & Now–a string star quilt.
Th last quilt I finished was on 16th. January and was called "Finding Koalas", a baby quilt. I love purple too and my stash of it is virtually non existent at present so winning your Giveaway would be awesome.
Purple is my favorite color and I like all the various hues. I have loved purple since my early 20's and I am in my early 70's now. I had purple in my wedding.
Purple is one of my favorite colors. I use a lot of it, whenever I can. The last quilt I finished - never I'm sad to say. I've just started getting active quilting but haven't actually quilted one yet. Just made some tops. I'm trying to use this year to finish some UFOs & actually get them quilted.
My mother, me, and my daughter have all chosen purple for a favorite color! Really looking forward to making the purple blocks! While I do finish plenty of quilts, I have plenty more in que!
I just finished repairing a baby quilt for my boyfriends sister in law. I repaired the top then had to replace the batting and backing. Almost like I made it! I did just finish my daughters tshirt quilt from her dads tshirts and got it to the quilter last week. I won't get that back til May. An almost finish there.
