Rainbow Scrap Challenge-purple

The colour chosen for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge is purple.  Having gone through all my fabric, there wasn't a lot of purple to play with.  I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad, but it won't mean there will be a lack of things for me to do.

As I didn't have much to play with, I thought it might be a good idea to use some of the ideas from the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo Group.  I went back through the files and went back to Challenge 1 for the blocks.  Even though I knew these were small quilts, the 11/2" squares were still a surprise.

I just made as many blocks as the fabric let me, and as there were only four of each, I've made it into a table topper.

I did have enough of the heat proof batting, but no fabric for the backing.  This will have to go and sit in the unfinished pile for a little while, but I did enjoy making some small blocks.

Oh, I like the block. I might be able to do the same, but I doubt I could get so many blocks. Maybe a square table topper. Thanks for the idea.
