Yesterday was spent tidying my sewing area and organizing my stash. I am actually a very messy sewer, and have a bad habit of not re-folding and returning fabric back to where it came from. It is not unusual for there to be a fabric mountain on my work table. Whilst going through some of my boxed fabrics I came across the Purple Patch Quilt. It was put aside, way back in November, to await the arrival of the binding fabric.
The binding fabric as well as all of the solids are Kaffe Fassett shot cottons in the colorway Lilac, Lavender, Heather, Prune and Grape.
Shot cottons, as opposed to true solids, add so much more depth and interest to a quilt with shifts in color from tonal variations.
Purple is still my personal challenge color, it is slowly growing on me. Slowly. I wonder if other quilters have color issues?
