Monday....time to get some projects done. I counted out how many blocks I made for my purple quilt and I think 30 is more than enough. I started pulling out purple fabrics from my stash to decide on the borders, binding and it will be a scrappy backing. I am determined to use up these fabrics from my stash.
I was trying to decide on the last block to make and started going through my old quilting books. Quilt In A Day came out with a book called Pioneer Sampler a long long time ago and it has nice traditional blocks in there that I could use. At this point, I just needed simple so I can finish my projects.
This block is called the Kentucky Chain. It consists of quarter square triangles and rectangle strips and really quick to put together. The only thing I had a problem with is squaring up each quarter block. The way the book tells you to square it up didn't compute in my mind so I just figured it out on my own.
Now that I've sketched the quilt layout and measurements, I can start cutting up fabrics to finish this quilt.
