Midweek Makers #426

Welcome to Midweek Makers!

Here we are, the middle of March - Happy St Patrick's Day this weekend! Too bad  the RSC2024 March color choice is purple not green, but it is what it is. Regardless, I happily dove into my purple scraps, this time making a tall scrap storage box, switching up the color of the lid lock. 

I picked out the red-violet purples for this block, because this is the color I think of when someone says 'purple'. Technically, 'purple' is in between red-violet and fuchsia (a more red purple) on the color wheel. 

I've still got plenty of scraps that lean toward purple and fuchsia, and of course, high contrast prints which are always hard for me to use in scrap blocks. Seems those always call attention to themselves! So a couple more blocks are in the works. 

There were some awesome quilts last week - very hard to choose the three features! But here they are:

from Alycia Quilts, a lovely new patriotic pattern, Stars Like Spaghetti,

Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking shared this fun and colorful quilt top,

and Songbird Designs popped in to show her Hawaiian shirt baby quilt.

My Favorite Patterns


  1. It always surprises me how many different shades of purple there are when I pull out my stash for the month! And they don't always play well together, either. But it looks like the ones you chose for your block do! Have a great day, Susan!

  2. March is flying by way too fast for me.

  3. Thank you for the feature, Susan! The mama to be loved that little quilt - her memories of her grandfather live on!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
