I was excited at the choice of purple for February's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color. I have plenty of purple in my stash. Then I started pulling fabrics for "Dancing Stars", the blocks I am making in each month's color. I am using solid black for the backgrounds, with a bright and a light of the color of the month for the stars. The pattern is from a quilt-along at Amy's Creative Side.
The problem I had with my fabrics was that my darker purples tend to blend in with the black background. I have been trying to pull out the ones that show up better against black. Many of my light purple fabrics are 30's repros. Here are my first four purple blocks for this month.
