Mini Quilt Blocks in Purple

Here's a peek at what I have been working on.
I am making 3" mini blocks for an upcoming project.
Some are pieced

some are sewn on paper foundation,

this one was fussy cut using Bethany Reynolds' technique called Stack 'N Whack,

and these 2 were improv piecing.

I have a stacking organizer. Each drawer holds one color family of scraps.
Some of these scraps were mighty tiny but I have a hard time tossing away fabric pieces.
I didn't know I had so many colors of purple fabrics until I really started this project.
I would have used those small pieces to create a large fabric piece from those scraps.
I am happy the scraps became blocks. 

Be sure to check back on August 1 for the reveal of my completed project.

Happy Quilting!

uhh fun, those are TINY! I did a mini bible block quilt last year with 3" blocks, those about killed me (some of them!) but it was fun :)

These are so cute. Especially like the wonky strip and white one near the end. I have a hard time throwing away tiny scraps too but haven't used them yet.
