Playing with purple.........

I cut some more light purples from my yardage and now have 19 dark and 18 light strips.  That will only make a quilt 48" square so I have more cutting to do.



I sewed some strip sets while watching a movie.  They are ready to press and cross cut for 2 blocks from each combination.  I have a tutorial for the 16 patch that guarantees seams going in opposing directions when sewing the blocks into a quilt......guaranteed if you follow the directions. 
The rest of the strips are paired and ready to sew.  Today is supposed to be our first snowstorm of the winter so I probably won't leave home today.

Thanks for the tutorial. A little planning when pressing makes so many projects go together so much easier. Thanks for sharing!

Love those purples. I saved your 16 patch tutorial last year and want to make some in the New Year :) Last night I finished my first 'hexagon' table topper and I'm so pleased with the result; (I'll send you a pic later when I get it off my camera).
It's a bit milder here today and forecast the same for the coming week (fingers crossed).

I never paid much attention to purple before, but lately I'm starting to like it!

Lovely purples. I have used your tutorial several times and am always pleased with how the seams meet. I'm selecting fabric this week for another one of your quilts, the Neapolitan quilt. Thanks!
