I finally played with my purple blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challeng. It's not a color I 'reach' for when quilting, but I do have scraps, FQs, and yardage - you just never know when the mood strikes. Also, my SIL loves purple and I think that is why it has become part of my stash.
Deep purple, medium purple, light purple, raspberry purple - hey, I even found some purple batiks.
I can't wait to see these 'Garlick Knot' blocks in a quilt. I found all these purples in my 2.5" barrel waiting to be played with.
And a nice variety of skinnies for a string block.
Even my doll quilt this month was purple. A mix of linen, silk and cottons. Why not? The theme was 'Diamonds are Forever' and my diamond block was accented with my grandmother's linen and silk - linen was probably a curtain or table clothe and the silk is from a blouse. She wore a lot of soft purples and I remember the lilac water perfume.
And my partner, Lee, sent me this lovely . Mochas and sweet pinks in a trip around the world setting (I immediately thought of my grand's tile kitchen floor) but it also looks like a box of chocolates. Who doesn't love a box of chocolates!
