Can you tell this quilt has been washed a few times?
Trick on the deer! These little rosebuds amazingly went undetected.
I made this quilt when I was 19, entirely out of scraps from the local quilt shop where I worked. There's a few fabrics in there that still make me cringe, but as a whole, it works amazingly well. Just goes to show that almost any fabrics can go together! And I added a purple border to this long before purple was even thinking about being cool again! Six years ago, I thought purple was just so hideously nineties, but somehow it seemed right on this quilt. Now, it's in again, and I'm wondering what to do with my tiny purple fabric stash. Like one fat quarter! I think you'd agree that's reason to buy up.
I'll admit that I'm not just loving it yet, but when I made this block,
I fell in love with the bright green and purple combo. (Oops, I guess I have two fat quarters in my purple stash. I forgot about the Amy Butler Water Bouquet in Midnight. And the two others were tiny scraps in my bin still from my quilt shop days)
I'm thinking bright purple with emerald green is needing to be paired up in a future quilt.
