I used a pattern I've used once before, for my daughter's grade one teacher's thank you quilt, and I went with a bunch of purples from my stash. I tried to do a bit of a gradient thing where half of the quilt is bluey-purple and half is pinky-purple. I also added a white border on the top and bottom to better fit her twin-sized bed.
Here it is, Pretty in Purple!
|It is bound in lilac Pearl Bracelets from my stash, and features some OOP Lizzy House, Riley Blake Chevrons, Kate Spain, a very Far, Far Away unicorns, Coton+Steel, Tula Pink, Lotta Jansdotter and some Amy Butler. Quite a mix in here!|
|Purple is one of my least favourite colours to work with, and this quilt had to grow on me. It is still not even close to my favourite, but I think a certain little girl will like it!|
With this quilt finished (and ready for the little girl's birthday the weekend before Christmas) I now have two more children to make quilts for in this group (out of 11 kids, that's not too shabby!).
Looking forward to finishing up my daughter's I-Spy quilt, hopefully in time for her mid-January birthday. Wish me sewing time this Christmas season!!
