The second to last quilt for the book! As I was trying to choose colors, I just couldn’t come up with anything. It needed 4 purples — from a very light, almost whitish lavender to a deep purple. My stash never seems to have enough purple and with some being reddish, some being blueish, some being pinkish, it’s real hard for me to get 4 of them that work together. This is when I miss The Village Mercantile! She has so much fabric, I could go there and get exactly what I needed, plus some!
When I did find 4 purples that I thought would work, I was just a tad short on one of them. The quilt was finalized in Electric Quilt but a couple of the purples were so similar, that I decided to swap one shade for something totally different so I could see how many of those pieces were in the quilt. I swapped it for a bright green and suddenly my quilt had a whole new look and I love it! It’s much prettier than the original color choices. Here are the fabrics I’ll be using . . only thing is . . I can’t decide which green. Actually I think I’m going to go with something that isn’t even shown here but I already had the memory stick out of the camera so you don’t get to see that one. But, I could change my mind . . that’s a woman’s right, you know?
Don’t you think the 2nd one is the best choice out of these three greens? I really should take a picture of the one I’m thinking of using. Sometimes a picture helps me decide.
