Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Purple
Leftover HSTs from Purple Love
Oh my, I love the colour purple! For this month's challenge I had hoped for pink or purple because I needed to make a baby girl quilt. I had been thinking about what design I was going to use and as I was searching around for my pink and purple scraps (strips, squares, rectangles, strings), I found a bin of leftover half-square triangles. I had made a purple/turquoise quilt for my niece Eva-Anne that I called Purple Love and it was made with a ton of purple/purple hst, purple/neutral hst, and neutral/neutral hst and of course I made way too many. Once the colour was announced I decided that I would use some of the purple/purple hst in the baby quilt. First I did a rough sketch of my plan -

and then I decided what fabric and sizes I would use for the center square and rectangles for the block. I also needed to decide what I will use for sashing between each block. Now that I have that all out of the way I am ready to start!
