Star and Cross block for Sewcial Bee Sampler Week #14

Sticking with my plan of full on rainbow-scrappy, this block had me diving into my stash of purple scraps.  Purple is not a favourite with me, so my stash has a very limited amount of this colour - actually most of the fabrics in this block are made from fabrics I have received in various swaps.  Thank goodness I have friends that have shared some of their purple fabrics with me! ;o)

Sewcial Bee Sampler Blocks 1 - 14

The weeks have been flying by and the blocks are really starting to add up! I'm already planning out which colour I will use for next week's block to make sure I cover all the colours of the rainbow.  Any guesses which colour I might be thinking of?


  1. Each one a work of art. Love your colour groupings. So satisfying to look at.

    Hope you're enjoying Spring. It's being nice here now too. Love it.

  2. Katherine, look at how great this quilt is looking. I gotta admit I hadn't liked the bolder blocks as well as the lighter more blendy ones, but with each one you add, I'm coming around to liking them after all. They are blending better than I expected they would.

  3. Love the purples Katherine- embrace it! I'm guessing there has to be a yellow one coming up..... Do you have some happy, bright yellows in your stash?
