Purple and Pink- an RSC17 Finish!

Woohoo! My first finish for the RSC17 January color, purple!

Though a bit late, this is what became of those forty flying geese units.

I was hoping to show a bit more of the block in it's construction phase, but it turned out the SD card was not in the camera. Last time I'll make that mistake!

The geese units, along with the surrounding dark purple, were all pieces from the pile of purple fabric.

See the triangles in the lower left? All gone! As for the two pinks in the quilt, those were from yardage in the stash.

Once the blocks had the pinks on, the quilt still needed to be bigger. That's when I found a pretty floral fat quarter for sashing, which played nicely with the pinks and purples. And every last bit of it was used!

To finish it off and tie everything together, the lighter pink fabric was repeated in the borders, helping to bring this quilt to 33" x 38", perfect as a baby size.

Quilted with one of my favorite pantos, Easy Peasy, with a soft, pink floral flannel on the back,

I'm pleased with how it all came together out of the scraps. I'd declare this a success for my first RSC venture.

Happy Quilting!
