blues and pinks and purples oh my

I also found these squares
all sewn into rows of 6
so what is a gal to do?
sew up 6 rows of them into a block
why? just because I can
and I threw it into the UFO block box to use
in my kitchen sink quilt
I may have an all blue quilt going on
lots of blue in my stash
and in my UFO blocks

this was also already cut and ready to go
I originally was cutting the blues for a
red white and blue one
but I didnt like the shade with what I had

so I sewed the blues into a table topper
I will layer it and back and batt it
for a quick finish on another morning

aint she purty??  
well I dont take good pictures but trust me
she is a good looking block!  
(cat whistles) 

then I found these
remember one day when I was cutting 5 inch squares
and some 2 1/2 inch strips in pinks and purples?

that was for this idea for a quilt
this started as an idea to use up some
5 inch squares that I didnt know what I wanted to 
do with them
so I pulled a few in pink and purple
and decided to do this
a cute little block
and I think my one granddaughter
who by the way LOVES purple and pink
may like to have a quilt in those colors

so I played with them for a bit and a third block joined them
and anothers parts are ready to go for the next sewing

what are you making with your stash?
