June's Purple Rainbow Challenge Continues


I love purple and have been collecting purple fabrics for a couple years. My plan ... to make some purple quilts. After cutting a homemade purple jelly roll, I pulled out Strip Happy Quilting on a Roll  by Donna Kinsey and started sewing blocks for the "Sampler '12' Quilt. Finished blocks are 18"x18". I'm making my blocks 16"x16" and will sash them with 2 1/2" strips of dark purple. The first 4 sampler blocks are in the first picture.

Its funny but purple would not be my choice of colour. However I love your huge pile of fabrics and your blocks look wonderful. Ive done my squares for this month and really struggled to find enough purple, but I admit they are now my favourite coloured block of the challenge!!!

Very unusual blocks, I like them. Great idea to make your own jelly roll.
