Purple Patchwork

We're already half-way through the month of September, and I'm just getting around to playing with this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color:  purple!

Two purple Sugar Bowls wrapped up the design plan for using these blocks in a quilt.  I won't be able to start assembling the blocks any time soon, but but I have a plan.  

I've really enjoyed this block style - I think I'll try a different basket-style block for a future RSC project!

Ring of Stars has been another fun block project.  I'm making this quilt for a friend, but I like the pattern so much, I might have to make another one for myself!

I'm always amazed by the varieties of the color purple.  Both of these fabrics are purple, but they look completely different!  

And...purples are hard to photograph!  This fabric is dark purple, but not as dark as the photo.

I'll save all my purple Tiny Tuesday blocks for a post later this month.  In the meantime, there's more purple inspiration at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link-up for today.


  1. I find purple hard to photograph, too, but I think your purples came through well! Pretty blocks, too!

  2. All are beautiful and all points right on! Hugs

  3. I can see why you want to make a Ring of Stars for yourself. I'd have to do the same.

  4. It alwsys amazes me the shades of each color and how it changes the look of the blocks so much. Great job.

  5. You're trying to talk me into making a Ring of Stars for myself, too, aren't you? (Good job!)
    Loving all those purples! And I can't manage to photograph them either...

  6. I still haven't finished my light blue blocks. Pretty purples.

  7. I love and have pinned all your RSC blocks. The purples are particularly lovely, Angie!

  8. Very crisp with the white backgrounds. Doing different baskets sounds like an interesting idea!

  9. Great blocks and purple is one of my favorite colors. Now I have "Purple Rain" going through my head :)
