Violet Riot - RSC17 #2

January RSC17 purple finish #2, Violet Riot!


Violet Riot

This quilt is just so purple, and has a ton of playfulness due to the yellow stripe in the sashing!

Isn't that fun?

These blocks started with a peach/plum unit from a leftover strip set, which were basically kept centered. Then strips that fit a needed size where continually added, somewhat in a log cabin style. The smallest of the nine blocks measured approximately 11" unfinished, so some had to be trimmed just a bit, for uniformity. With the addition of a 1" sashing, the quilt's final size is 35" square, another good size for a baby quilt.

Quilting on this one is another favorite panto, Bluster, with a fun plum floral flannel on the back.

Truly adds to the Violet Riot on the front, and another great RSC17 purple finish! Purple and Pink was the first, and the third quilt will be revealed next week. Inspired to dig into your scraps yet?

Have a great day quilting!

  1. It is certainly very purple and the yellow is the perfect compliment. I like the touch of light blue in one of your fabrics too. It's a lovely baby quilt and a fun backing too.

  4. What a fun quilt. Is your purple bin empty now? I'm inspired to start sewing up something for the RSC17 project, but first some UFOs need to be tended to.

  14. I agree with you - your quilt is so playful! I love how you alternated the yellow (?) line in the middle of square! It adds to the playfulness! Even the quilting looks fun! Thank you so much for sharing!
