March RSC Purple Blocks

I had a bit of time and finished up all of my different blocks for the RSC for the month of March.  The color for March was purple.

Purple Crown and Star block.  This is a Marcus fabric is which is a reproduction.  It almost looks brown or gray, but it is this lovely purple color. 
All of my Crown and Star blocks together.  I love how these blocks look together without sashing.
 Saw toothed square.  The purple I used was from my stash.  One of the few purples that I actually had enough to make the block.
My row of Saw toothed squares.

A couple of my favorite purple foxes.  Love the chipper fabric with the raspberry, lavender, pinks, and aquas.

All of my fox blocks.
There is a missing fox which is blue to add to this group.  

I finally got the Twisted blossom cut out and sewn.
So many fun purples, and background scraps I found to use.  
My row of twisted blossoms.

Finally the Navajo block.  
Love the colors and I found another small piece to add to the background stash for this quilt.  
All three of the Navajo blocks.  I have been choosing colors that remind me of the southwest.  The browns remind me of the red rock areas, the blues of the sunny cloudless skies, and twilight, ad the purples of the distant mountains, with the lavender the sky at sunset above those mountains. 

I am linking up with the So Scrappy and the Last Purple Saturday.

Can't decide which block I like best. They are all so fine. The Crown and Stars, the foxes and the Navaho really are special. You are adding a lot to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, congrats.
