Last month I finally got to tour a friends new kitchen. She loves color and painted the walls purple. I assumed a nice muted purple but it was really bright.
I instantly thought of a fat quarter pack of purple fabrics I won as a door prize a few years ago. Not being a great fan of purple I put them aside.
My friend didn't have any potholders to match her new kitchen so my purple fabric came to the rescue. She likes potholders that are 7 - 8 inches square which elimitates most 9 patch designs. So, the churn dash block has a larger center.
I even made the backs purple. My friend was delighted.
While I had the purple fabric out I made some blocks for my next quilt.
I made 3 blocks about 5 years ago and then stopped. Now I'm up to 9 blocks and am not going to stop until I have a full quilt (final size is still undetermined). These will be the only purple blocks. The others will probably be blues, greens and reds.
