A Purplelicious Top

I hope you aren't tired of purple yet, because I finished the Purplelicious top. Your comments seemed heavily weighed towards the dark colours and mixed colour border so...I decided to see what it would look like with a mixed dark purple border, but just two colours. I tried the Purple and Eggplant (Kona colours), but the Purple seemed too blue.


I finally settled on Eggplant and Hibiscus -- dark, but warmer:


Lots of partial seams for the final piecing. That and the bias edges from the improv piecing made me worried that this would be hard to keep flat, but it's looking okay so far. We'll see how it quilts. Fingers crossed!

I'm kind of liking these wonky edges. Something else to think about as I quilt this...

Hope you are having a great day!

  13. I love the splashes from the red sector. You achieved balance and made it look so easy when I know it is not really that easy.. I wish this was coming to my house.
