Purple Mountain Majesties


Purple Mountain Majesties
It's a top!
60 x 72

Back in 2016 I was one of the August Block Lotto winners of Split Nine Patch blocks in a purple, gray and white colorway. 



 I knew I wanted a nice sized donation quilt so I made enough blocks to add to my winnings to equal 120 blocks to be set 10 x 12.  For the longest time I could not decide on a layout because there are so many different ways to use Split Nine Patches. Actually you can use a Split Nine Patch any way you would use a 6 inch HST (half square triangle). 

And now I think that leaves me with two more sets of Block Lotto winnings...

It is quite lovely and dramatic. The colors are wonderfully sparkling.

Great quilt, the zigzags show up so well with the colours, especially the variety of purples.

What a great layout you chose - and I do like the color way. Of course, purple is one of my top three colors (along with pink and green).

Was that Lotto really FIVE years ago? The blocks look great as peaks and valleys.

....and I probably still have some of the purples in the blocks that I made that month....

Oh, I love this! I only have a few orange split nines to make before I can assemble a rainbow top for the RSC. I can’t wait to play with the layout. I sure love yours!!
