    Should I mix up the colors? I'm thinking not having the purple on the outside all the time. Maybe every third block and move around the yellow and green...

    Great colors - I would do the same and mix up the yellow/green.

    That's going to be a "fun" quilt to make ... every time you work with it, you'll be bound to be happy!!

    When the corners come together the four pieces are going to give you a purple square on point. I think it'd be nice ... and help frame up the green and yellow.

    Though if that's not the look you want ... then, perhaps you want to switch the colours around or add an 4th colour?

    I think I will make a few more just like this and lay them out and take a look. Thanks. Don't want to add a 4th. My DGD asked for these 3 colors. : )

    It is a tube quilt block. Search on this board for tube quilt and you will find how to do it. It really isn't hard. I did get the 4 parts sewn wrong and had to take out the stitches and be very careful how I sewed them together. Won't make that mistake again! Ha! The purple is a 6 1/2 inches wide strip and I cut the other two 3 1/2 so when I sewed them I would have 6 1/2 ". Then you just cut triangles.

    Absolutely ... keep to DGDs plan!
    The four purples together would give you a nice block of colour to do some fancy quilting!

    It's done just the same way as the other block is done, just different widths of the fabrics and both sides of the tubes are strips, rather than the one large purple one in this case.

    I love this block, it is a great way to use up scrap strips. Who doesn't have 2" strips laying around. It only take 4.

    Go ahead and mix it up and have some fun with it. It is a very bright, pretty colored block. Can't wait to see it finished.

    do you have colored pencils or crayons? draw the blocks on a piece of paper and play with the color layouts.
