Clan MacPurple Quilt

These blocks have been in a bag for years.  I finally sashed them with bits of purple or white as the mood suited me and squared them all to the same size.  Meh.  It's a nice enough top.  Nothing to write home about.  I wanted to find some nice white fabric with purple flowers on it for the back.  No can do.  Apparently they don't make fabrics like that anymore.  Anywhere.  Really.

So I decided I'd go with a plaid.  A hand made plaid.  This was the most fun I've had piecing in months.  Wait!  It's the ONLY piecing I've done in months!  Strangely enough, Beth was thinking plaids lately too.  I wonder what she's cooking up?
