While pulling out my purple scraps for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects, I ran across a batch of purple 4-patch blocks that were made a few years ago. The last time I looked at these was last September, when our color of the month was also purple. At that time I considered a couple of different layouts for the blocks. The first version has the lightest squares running in a diagonal line down the center, and the second has them scattered around randomly.

Design Wall Monday 8/10/2020
I decided that random was the better way to go, but I wanted to change the setting from a 7x7 square to a 6x8 rectangle. After arranging all the blocks on the design wall, I got to work joining them together. Here they are all stitched together, with some border options being auditioned.
The border decision is to use the brighter purple that is shown along the bottom edge. The other two are just too dark or dull. Adding a 3" finished border will bring this quilt to a finished size of 36" x 46".
