I think this might be my favorite block; it was certainly fun to work on. I did have to alternate applique thread colors, but it was very easy to fill in the white spaces after all the purple was done.
We got back to Texas to a night of stormy weather, especially to the south of us here in Fort Worth. Vacation in Scottsdale was awesome - lots of quilt stores and hiking and perfect weather. I will have some pictures later this week.
