Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Purple #3

Life has been so busy that I completely forgot about posting the 3rd purple scrap block for June.  I had intended to post last Saturday, but Drama Teen had a swim meet. There wasn't much time to write a post before heading off to the pool.  So here's the third purple block for June. 



 I love the paisley fabric in this cup, so it's become my favorite cup to date.  There is quite a collection of cups to choose from now.

The lady bug cup is a very close second.  This quilt has been a fun one to make.  Picking the fabrics for the cups has been a walk down memory lane as it's hard not to think about the original project the scrap was used in.  So far scraps from 8 previous quilts have made their way into this project. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what the color is for July.  I need to finish the last "E" so it doesn't look like "coffee" is missing something.  To see the last of the purple scraps for this month, check out what's posted over at Soscrappy

  3. I managed to get four purple blocks made on Saturday (talk about leaving it till the last minute) before the family arrived. I still have partially started blocks and purple scaps all over my new ironing board! Ah well, when I get up this morning (it's already past midnight), it'll still be June in USA!
