A month ago I was commissioned to make a purple quilt for an Etsy buyer. Now, I love quilts. However, I don’t ♥ purple. In fact, it’s the least favorite color on the ROYGBIV spectrum. Life teaches us that you must make do with what you have. The entire quilt is purple, as the customer chose each fabric. I can’t say that I love it, and I suppose I don’t have to since it’s not mine, but it is growing on me.
Eventually these strips will turn into a big purple people eater full size quilt. Over the weekend I was able to iron all the fabrics, (see I learn from previous mistakes), cut the initial strips, sew the strips, cut them again so that we have the above said strips. It’s the basic baby block baby blanket though I am going to need to spruce up the sides as this blanket will need a bit more length and width. I haven’t decided what to do about that quite yet. I can add three extra sets of 5 x 5 blocks. Or I can get creative.
