Too funny!

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I love color. Almost any color (I'm not a huge fan of maroon). So when Barbara chose purple as this week's color for Stars in a Time Warp, I had to chuckle. Normally I would be thrilled as purple is my second favorite color (after yellow), but this is what I have been working on for the past week...


A purple and white quilt for my nephew's wedding. (I'm sure he won't be reading this so I can post it). It isn't my really my style, but I know they will love it and after all, it is purple.


VERY purple!

But, I managed to sneak in a few of my own purple choices and made my little time warp stars.
I love this one with a darker purple for the points and a nice madder background.


And then I used a more muted purple (almost lavender) and used that wonderful diagonal plaid (again) from Mary Koval.


My friend Karen (no Blog) has joined in and I hope to share some of her stars soon. These have been a lot of fun and i love seeing what other people have chosen for fabrics. Makes me want to go shopping. And, speaking of shopping, if you are New England in April, Maine is having a shop hop. I will be spending Thursdays at my friend's shop, Busy Thimble, in Litchfield. So, if you are in the neighborhood, do stop by!

  2. Lovely purples! both in the wedding quilt AND your stars, and really like the MK plaid you are using in the last couple of projects. I also wish I was close enough to visit your local shop hop! You'll have to make sure you share lots of photos, please.

  3. The last star photo with the plaids really appeals to me! I think I'm going to have to check out the Busy Thimble website.

  10. I love the fabric in the purple stars. And yes, it makes me want to go shopping too. I have been trying to use stash, so haven't shopped much lately, but recently saw some luscious CW reproductions when I visited a guild in Salem.
