Purple Marches On!


I have been rather stalled on My Blue (Purple) Heaven from the Bonnie Hunter workshop last February.  Pattern is here:  http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/my-blue-heaven.html so I thought I should just start putting the blocks I had done into a quilt top so that I might be further motivated to finish up the twenty something stars I need to sew!  Bug jumped right on for a photo too!


 I caught up on the last two Quilt Cam's that I missed which was fun!  Bonnie even mentioned me on the second one, though I was working and not playing with her as I prefer to do!  I looked around my messy of stack of stuff and thought I needed to cut more of the larger purple triangles before i could do any more blocks.  So as you see on the computer above I cut a bunch.  Then I promptly found this stack below--all cut and sewn together for centers for all the rest of the blocks I need.  HA, I should not leave projects half done without leaving myself a note!
 I made a few more stars...
And lots of lozenges.  Kathy piled up a bunch of stuff but that is how we roll.  I am almost out of purple lozenges...good thing since we are almost to the next color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! I will be linking up when I get a chance with SoScrappy!
And one more row is on--tomorrow is charity sewing all day but I hope to get back to star blocks in the late afternoon and maybe, just maybe move this quilt along!  OOOOH happy accident, I just looked at the borders for this quilt and I will be using those extra triangles I cut tonight--WHOOT WHOOT!

In other news, I lost 3.6 pounds this week for a total of 27. something!  My fitbit really helps keep me moving and I even made it to 11,000 something steps yesterday for a new record!  Kathy has also lost 25 pounds, and now my sewing friend Becky has joined up and she has already lost 12!  Hope your weekend is quilty!

Me again... great weight loss result (I had to convert from pounds to kilos to understand how much it was). I can't believe you've lost that much so quickly; you must be really counting those points. Well done!

Awesome job on the weight loss. I am so proud of you for sticking to it. I haven't lost any more, but maintaining is just as difficult. Great blocks and I love the purple quilt.
