2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, April, Purple, Week 1 and Quilty Fun Quilt Top Progress


April's RSC color is purple. Pictured are three 8.5" scrappy string blocks to go with one I made last year. A yellow cotton knitted dishcloth made it into the picture. To see what other's made with their purple scraps go here.


Finished piecing my scrappy Quilty Fun 67.5"x 67.5" Be Happy quilt top this morning. Went with four different floral fabrics for a 6.5" fun border. The pattern suggests a scrappy binding but I think I'll use a red floral fabric to tie everything together.
