Purple for April

Our esteemed leader, Angela of soscrappy has announced the new color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (see the button on the right) is purple... So I did my homework to figure out what colors to use.  Here are my results from the Crayola box of 64.

I hope you can read the names of the colors... my hand is really shaky, so the names were written by my hubby.  You notice the colors of the wrappers on the crayons reflect which family of colors each crayon belongs to. I just noticed that last night. I noticed it mostly because two of the colors I think of as purples have red labels. Red Violet, well Dah, I guess that could be considered a red... but it's so purple in my mind. Then Lavender... well that is just a purple color, but it too has a red wrapper. (Somebody at the factory messed up?)

I love the one called Purple Mountains Majesty. I colored it on both top wings in the picture below.

 (The patterns above are the ones I'm using for my butterflies. It's a 2005 MH Designs pattern. I don't remember where I got it - sorry.)
 On the crayon wrapper this one above is Violet (Purple). I guess that is the definitive purple... very pretty.

Purple has more colors than the other crayon families.

I've pulled some scraps, but haven't started the sewing yet.  Maybe this afternoon.

So now we are all on the same page, purple wise.... anything goes!



  1. Love your purple scraps. This is going to be a great month.

  2. interesante post, saludos desde España.interesting post, happy day from Spain

  3. Hurrah for purple--in all its forms! Your butterflies are going to be purty.

  4. Not my favorite color however neither was yellow, lol. I'm waiting for green!!

  5. I agree, I think they made a mistake at the factory on that red wrapper. I'll have to pull out my box of crayons and see what color mine is.

  8. now I'm leaving a message for Terri with the coolest paper pieced name!! I am just now, and I should send you a pic of a quilt in the works, paper pieced words from my own software. Playing with crayons..... oh my gosh... I betcha when you and I were little girls, if we were together we'd have been playing with my box of 64 crayola crayons, sharpening them, outlining the picture, engrossed in putting colors on paper! Right? I'm turning really old this year, suddenly, and missing the coloring books of my youth. Somehow I don't think it would be the same now... or is it? LeeAnna

  9. I think your butterflies will be beautiful whichever shade of purple you go for - but then I do have a bit of a weakness for butterflies!!
