purple dawn quilt pattern made using Hoffman FabricsPurple Dawn is a quilt I made a few years ago with Hoffman Fabrics and today I was wondering how it would look in a larger size. The pattern actually comes in two sizes already, 43" square and 84" square, but I figured I could easily make it rectangular instead.

This was easy enough to do by repeating the center section. I added the chain of squares to make the connection complete.

purple dawn - center is extended to double the length for a larger quilt

Then I used the applique corner design to fill in the gap along both sides. I rotated it so the corner flower was inward. Now I still have a continuous applique design.purple dawn is extended and applique is added to make a continuous border

Making it this way would mean I'd end up with a small quilt of 43" x 66", a nice lap size or the bigger quilt of 84" x 128".... and one could easily add larger borders if desired.

Now I'm wondering how the small quilt might look with the center repeated four times....

Perhaps someone might give it a try, and if you do, please share a photo. If you'd like the pattern, you can get it this week on sale for $6.99 .... that's a bargain and a fun quilt to make.

More about Purple Dawn: This quilt pattern can be made to include the applique or it can be left plain to enhance a decorative quilting design instead. It has an easy to piece center with borders. An applique flowering vine makes up an interesting border on point. The large double flowers are highlighted with bright turquoise centers, all the colors deplicting those of the chosen theme fabric.
