I started the month with my X and + blocks. I didn't have any purple scraps, or maybe I just couldn't find them, so I ended up cutting up some fat quarters. Some of my purple fabrics are quite dark, and they show up almost as black. Rest assured, they are purple! Here are the first 2 blocks:
I even managed to find a few fabrics with bits of purple in them, to use for the light contrasts for the corner blocks!
I've also cut the purple strips for my Kickin' Stash blocks, but I've temporarily lost my white fabric for the balance of the blocks, so those blocks will show up later this month.... I need something to do next week!
