When I was making this block today, I thought “So who in the world should I dedicate an all purple block to?” There was really only one choice: Jill R.. Jill loves purple. She has purple purses, clothes, coats, shoes…. I think her car might be kind of purplish. That kind of dedication to a color is commendable. But I have to be honest, it is one of my favorite colors too.
So I guess this is co-worker week for hummingbirds. I love working with Jill because she always makes me feel appreciated. Although I imagine she makes everyone feel this way as she has an affinity for showing up at just the right moment with yummy cupcakes. But seriously, she is always telling everyone how awesome I am and I am starting to fear that I won’t live up to it. And yes… I do like cupcakes. I like them a lot. I like cupcakes as much as she likes purple.
Thoughts on this block:
The dark purple fabric was very “floppy”. I really should have starched it first. Does anyone want to come over to starch and press 700 different pieces of fabric for me? Yeah… I didn’t think so.

I’ve really been enjoying seeing the various blocks you’re making for this quilt, they all look quite different even though it’s the same pattern for each – look forward to seeing the end result!
Thanks! It’s been fun.
