Purple Passionflower

Here's #3 of the purple RSC17 quilts, Purple Passionflower!


Purple Passionflower quilts

These blocks are just like the ones for Violet Riot, though just a bit smaller. The scraps strips were getting shorter and narrower, therefore the blocks ended up at 9 1/2". With added sashing of 2 1/2" strips, the quilt is still a good size, measuring in at 36 1/2" square.

This quilt is quieter than Violet Riot due to the sweet flower print in the sashing.

Always amazes me how different fabrics, whether by print or color, can change the whole feel of a quilt.

Because of those sweet flowers, I used a new panto, Passionfruit. Aren't those flowers and swirls pretty?

And the back of a purple checked flannel works perfectly with the front.

Oh so sweet! Another great RSC17 finish, along with Purple and Pink, and Violet Riot. Is that purple scrap bin empty? Heck no! What's left are all the small or weird pieces.



I'm attempting to dream up a block that uses these pieces, one that can be made in all the other colors over the rest of the year. Then I'll have a true Rainbow Scrap Quilt!

Have a great weekend quilting!
