Radiant Orchid - Pantone Color of the Year Quilt Challenge

The other day I stumbled upon the Pantone Color of the Year Quilt Challenge hosted by On the Windy Side and Play Crafts. This year's color is Radiant Orchid.

2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid
Of course, this is the actual Pantone swatch, so it doesn't exactly match my fabric, but I think it's pretty close.

My fabric is a pretty bright purple, hopefully close to the correct color.   

Here is the start to my quilt, the first two blocks.

Each block is 28 inches square. I'm planning on six blocks.
Anyway, I'm kind of excited about this quilt - very graphic, I think.

I'm linking up with a Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Free-Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
