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.
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!
