PURPLE PLUS – 65″ x 77″ – May 21, 2018
Today I finished my purple plus quilt to the flimsy stage. This top is currently 65″ x 77″ which makes it a nice lap/cuddle size.
This is the third quilt in my STS (Slash the Stash) series and the second purple quilt in that series.
Two quilts that Cora posted on her blog, Carla Quilts were the inspiration for my quilt. She had made a green colorway and a blue colorway of this same design. The pattern is from a Modern Plus tutorial by Jeni Baker of In Color Order.
The pattern utilizes 4.5 inch cut squares. I over cut and so I have a stack of purple squares leftover. Those squares will likely find a way into a baby quilt at some point in the future.
I am back looking for suitable patterns for the next STS quilt.
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.
