    I finally decided what colors the blocks will be. Not my first choice but it's the only purple fabric I can get my hands on now that even looks close.

    The only block from the first batch that I'm using is the first one.

    I will not post any more pictures until I get it done.

    I'd love to know too. I went to Northeast High School in KC, MO, and our colors were purple and gold and we were the mighty Vikings.
