A Purple Kinda Mood

I picked out all purples in my stash last week and got to cutting.  Purple was my mood I can honestly say.  After seeing more and more purple quilts in bloggy world, I decided I had to join in;)

 4" squares,2"x6" rectangles, 2" squares, 2"x4" rectangles,borders and binding all cut!!  Sounds like a lot to chew yes,but I tend to enjoy the cutting process.
How about ya'll?  What is your favorite part of the quilting process? 

Paired with some Kona Coal,the 17 rows are coming together and with each row more excitement building.  A girl is going to really enjoy this quilt somewhere in the world!

Just a little sneak peak into what was awaiting me last night for dinner courtesy of the hubby;)  I had run off to Joann's for the Kona Coal,did a few errands and returned to this!!  It was quite tasty.  The Mexican flare was homemade tortillas with shredded steak (marinated with orange juice and lime juice and spices) and rice with black beans,onion,garlic and spices.  To drink, Josh made me a Peach, Orange, Banana Coconut Rum glass of refreshing yumminess!!!   Isn't he something---a real keeper for sure!

Enjoy your evening and hope you get some sewing in:)

Oh yes, I love purple! Love that stack of purple from your stash. Looks like a cool project to be working on. I used to dislike the cutting phase of sewing and quilting, but now I have grown to really like it. I'm off to see what purples I can pull together from my own stash.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for the kind words. I can't quilt so I'm amazed at people who can. I love those pot holders!

I'm not a quilter (yet), but I've been drawn to purples lately and have added a ton to my stash.

Your quilt looks amazing and so does the dinner your husband prepared! Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello. Nice to "meet" you. :)
