I love participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge with SoScrappy and I love the color Purple. So I am one happy camper with all the purple projects out there right now.
I decided to make string blocks this year for my RSC quilt. My color bins all have varying amounts of strings in them so each month I am just making whatever string blocks I can.
Well, my purple bin was overflowing!
Because I had so many strings, I ended up with more than enough blocks to make a lap sized quilt. I pulled 22 of the 10" blocks and put together this purpliscious scrap quilt.
I found a yard of this blue/purple fabric to use for an inner border and the binding. I even got fancy and mitered the corners!
I found a big piece of Jen Kingwell's Gardenvale in my backing stash and thought it was perfect.
I still have some purple blocks left but I just added them to my collection of string blocks. I am sure they will become something in the future!
I warned you there will probably be a number of string quilts produced this year. I can't wait for February's color to be announced!
