    Like you I always think I don’t have much purple, but then I’m surprised by what I find! The snippet in the scrap pile with the candy canes and houses looks interesting!

    Anxious to see your finished placemat, looks great so far. I love purple and I don’t have a lot of purple, I did pick up a fat quarter bundle for a quilt(someday). I see some fun scraps that would play nicely at my house, LOL

    My daughter loves purple. I recently made a scrap block star quilt for her in purple, and wow did it take a lot of pieces!!

    Since my granddaughter likes purple, I’ve started to collect all shades of purple to make a quilt for her next birthday.

    I think it is interesting as we go through our fabric which colours there are in abundance. I have lots of blues, greens, and aquas, and I am also fond of warmer oranges and reds. I don’t seem to have much yellow or purple. What I really need to invest in is more low volume fabric too. Thanks for a fun giveaway. x

    I like how the half square triangles add a punch to the design. Nice fabrics in giveaway, great prints and colors.

    I also don’t have a lot of purple in my fabric stash. I see some aqua in your fabric scraps.

    I find purple a difficult colour – but perhaps I could make an exception for AG!!
