3rd Purple Scrap Saturday
Scrappy Saturday is here. I have some more blocks to add to one of my rainbow quilts. I fell in love with this Rainbow Quilt last Nov and wanted to make one. I have made the inside part different for each block. I plan to do the sashing kind of the same but in green. The top block is a 6" star on the inside. To see more purple goodness check out the linky page at Soscrappy.
Friday night sew in was last night check out what they all worked on Here.
A purple log cabin with a twist for the second block.
This is a photo I took back in March after doing Brown, Red, Lime Green, Green and Pink. In May I did two Yellow blocks. I now have 13 blocks for my quilt and hope to get more done. I am thinking I could do another brown one. I feel like Blue is strongly missing so far.
Today I am sewing with the Leduc quilt guild on one of our UFO days. I hope to work on my son's quilt and RRCB quilt.
Up date June 17 for Linda who asked what size I have done these blocks (finish to 12" blocks). You too can do these. First the centre block is 6" finished (6 1/2" unfinished). I did different types of blocks. Six divided into so many unit sizes. Then the white is a 1 1/2" strip (1" finished) the piano key is cut 2 1/2" (finished to 2") It can be 2 1/2 units all sewn together or some strip piecing. The key can be any width from 1" to 3" but I kept mine to under 2". I hope that has helped.
