Green and Purple scrap quilt

This green and purple scrap quilt is making a dent in my scrap pile. I cut a few rectangles every time I am in the sewing room, even taking a few minutes to cut while I am waiting for the iron to heat up to press my husband's shirts!

For each block you need 8 rectangles measuring 2 1/2" X 4 1/2". Sew together in pairs and then sew pairs into a four patch. Press seams in clockwise direction on the back , then all seams will nest together when sewing rows. This makes a great woven quilt.

When I have a few minutes to sew I make a block or two. Here are the results. The block in the bottom centre of the image shows the layout of the block.

I will post an image of the rows as they are assembled.
