STS – #3 – Purple Plus

Purple Plus - blocks on the design wall

Purple Plus – blocks on the design wall

While I was cutting the pieces for my Purple Tempest quilt, I cut the squares for this quilt top.  This is Purple Plus and it will be the third quilt that I am working on in my quest to STS (Slash the Stash).

I got the idea for this quilt from a blog post by Cora Quilts.  This quilt top is made from 4.5″ squares (19 rows of 16 squares each) – using a layout / pattern by Jeni Baker of In Color Order.  This quilt should finish about 64″ x  75″ which should make it a nice lap size.

Currently, this is just squares on my design wall.  Construction of this quilt definitely requires a design wall to lay everything out to make sure your light, medium, and dark fabrics are balanced in placement.  Once I have made my final decision on my layout I can proceed with sewing the blocks together into rows.
