    Happylab I love purple too. When my husband and I bought our second house he said to paint the inside any color I wanted. Every room except three has purple in it. The three rooms are the downstairs bathroom, laundry room (not finished) and his office.

    Looks like you have a great bunch of blocks "thimblebug". Wonderful progress and I think your little sewing machine is so cute.

    Well tonight I have taken the time to lay out the blocks and will label them so that I don't get them too far out of order. Name:  July 4 2019003_edited (Small).JPG

    Thumblebug, love your colors. I like the richness of them. They sure catch my eye. I will post my finished quilt.... tomorrow. I am putting on the binding as I type.

    Thimblebug yours turned out beautiful! I hope to get to work on mine over the next week, not sure how large I will be making. Finally finished and delivered the wedding quilt I had been working on so now I can get back to this one.

    For the border I decided to add one line of blocks so the white centers ended on one white square. I also just sewed until the 2 1/2 inch squares was close to depleted. I didn't know I had so many scrap squares! I have now completed this throw size, and a queen size. I'm pretty sure I have enough blocks left to make a baby quilt as well. I have one quilt in front of these to quilt then will get to the sandwiching and quilting as soon as I find a pattern to quilt.

    Erin, I love your border idea and hope you don’t mind if I steal it from you...I have about 3 or 4 more of the scrappy blocks to assemble and another dozen of the background blocks but I have not seen my sewing room in about a month.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
