Must love purple again....

I have another quilt to share, but it looks very much like something I've made before!



 Yup, my Must Love Purple quilt that I showed at Bloggers Quilt Fest 2012. I was contacted by someone who wanted me to recreate this for her and I was happy to do it. After all, I love purple!


Most of the fabrics came from my stash, but she did provide several and I tried to tailor the color palate to what she sent me. I had taken this to a retreat to quilt it and was asked where I got all the purple. I realized that I have just been collecting it! When I find it, I buy a little bit here and there!


The tutorial for this block can be found here at Nittany Block Party.


I kept the quilting deliberately loose (as in, not densely quilted) so the quilt will be nice and snuggly. I only quilted along the scrappy stripes and then around the borders. I used a variegated thread (didn't get a great shot of that).


This is ONE BIG QUILT! Because I stink at quilt math, she asked for 80" x90" and I wound up at 90" x 100"! LOL  To give you a sense of the size, one of the 4 parts that makes up the square is 6.75".


You can see the quilting a little better on the back of the quilt. All of the greens and the blue back here are extras of what the client sent me.


I made the binding scrappy too. I always love a scrappy binding. Now to send this off to it's new home!
