Scrappy Purple Violet Blocks

The last purple gasp of projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Violets

5 inch violet blocksWhen a friend mailed me a big box of fabrics culled from her stash, some of the purple strips seemed perfect for some violet blocks.

These are 5-inch blocks. Curiously it's not one of the six sizes included in the pattern I created for the Block Lotto a few years ago ... I see an updated pattern in my future.

I plan to use these for a sewing machine cover for my purple Bernina.

I'm playing a little catch-up after picking up a bug at the quilt retreat and will be late joining the parties for Scrap-Happy Weekend and Design Wall Monday.

You can find the pattern at the top of my Free Quilt Block Patterns page.

Reminded again how much I like these blocks. Might have to make some again. Just not in 3"... :)

Oh these are such sweet blocks - and they remind me that I have some like them somewhere done in oranges. Need to unearth them -- happy stitching!

I love these blocks Sophie, they are really effective. I remember when we made some for the lotto a few years back. Your Bernina will be very comfy!
