Trimmings, etc.

 What does your trash bin look like? Here's mine from the other day...

That's a lot of purple and orange! 

I am almost (notice I said almost!) embarrassed by this stack of purple fabric that is from my stash. Why do have I have so much purple?  Who knows?

I am making two versions of the Sassafras Lane Designs Atlantic Avenue. One of the quilts will be much like the cover quilt, and I have all of my black/white, purple and orange blocks made. I have all of the fabrics pulled for the other colors and I am sewing those as leader/ender projects.

My second version of the quilt is a two color version, which is why you see so much purple and orange in my trash bin. Jack chose the colors and while I was a bit apprehensive, I decided to just dive right in and get to work. 

I have the top complete, but have not had an opportunity to get a picture of the whole quilt. Instead, I'll share a few "in progress" pictures. Here's the center...

And here's 2/3 of it laid out. (I really struggle with getting good pictures of purple fabric! One day I'll have to learn to how do that.)

As you can see, this quilt uses a lot of purple, so I guess it's a good thing I have that stash. I didn't have to buy a single purple or orange fabric! 

While I was working on this, I decided to make the purple and orange blocks that are needed for the rainbow version before putting that fabric away. I am glad I did and will make the red blocks next since I just completed a black and red quilt. I'll share pictures of that tomorrow.

LOVE those purples!!! I'm looking forward to seeing this quilt come together. May have to go buy that pattern to make on for myself!
