Scrappy Purple saturday

Well, I’ve gone and done it. I told myself I wouldn’t and that I couldn’t because I have way too many projects already on the go. But I’ve gone and done it anyway. Joined the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This month’s colour is purple. I’m making purple scrappy 1 inch equilateral triangle, which are getting put together into 3 inch triangles.
I have tons of 1 1/2 inch strips in my scrap bins, which are perfect for these. This is kinda what I’m aiming for.
The triangles in the middle may turn out to be fussy cut diamonds, if I can find some fabric with purple in it for fussy cutting, or maybe yellow for fussy cutting. And the one colour triangles around that centre star will probably be hexagons. However, considering I’ve just started this today, and I still have five of the star points to do, there is time to decide exactly where this will go. In the meantime, I’ll have some fun, bust some tiny scraps, and join up with Scrap Happy Saturday.


  1. Welcome to the RSC. Your little triangles look great, and I love your planned design.

  2. What a great pattern. I like the way that you can assemble each of the star points before joining it to the big block. Makes sewing on the go so much handier.

  3. A great idea, Cathy. Looking forward to seeing your work as it grows!

  4. Wow! That looks really intense, but the design makes more sense now that I've seen "the big plan"... Go for it!

  5. Welcome to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!! What's ONE MORE project (when you are using up your scraps?) Embrace the challenge, have some FUN, and USE those SCRAPS!!

  6. So so so fun! Looks a bit like what we used to call chinese checkers!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
