There are certain colours that I'm drawn to: yellow, grey, pear (chartreuse?), pink, and navy. I don't really care if it's true or not: for me, these are neutrals and I think they've made their way into nearly every quilt I've made.
But there are other colours I barely glance at, unless in very specific tones: purple, blue, brown. I can't recall a single time I've sewn with black fabric. It's not because I don't like them. I just don't know what to do with them.
Imagine my surprise when not one request for something purple came my way, but two. It seems that nearly everyone I know is having a baby, and these days, I find myself making baby things galore--mostly in purple.
While I found a great fabric for the bag quickly--a Freebird print by MoMo-- finding suitable quilt fabrics was more difficult. I finally settled on a stack of purple fabrics accented by, what else, shades of butter, gold and pale pink. But now I'm at a loss about what to do with them!
I'm trying to decide between the Fenced In quilt from Elizabeth Fransson's new book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork, and the Flock of Triangles quilt from Denyse Schmidt. I've been traveling around with my stack of fabric waiting for just the right inspiration (seriously!), but I'm finding it tough.
What do you think? Flock of Triangles? Fenced In? Something entirely different? Help me make my purple quilt!
