Turkey Tracks: Purple, Purple, Purple

Turkey Tracks:  May 11, 2015

Purple, Purple, Purple

These fabrics have been bundled up to make a quilt for some years now.  (I have been inspired by making the “At The Lake” quilt which has been hanging around for a few years too–like 12 years.)

I recently went back through these bundles and broke some of them up and put those fabrics back into the working stash.

Life moves on, tastes move on, quilting moves on, I am moving on with the flow.

Purple is not my first choice for a quilt usually.  I seem to be more drawn to blues, greens, and warm colors–reds and the like.

Look at all these purples and magentas!

The strip also has some blue and some limey green…

Here’s what’s happening on the design wall:

Wild, huh?

I think this fabric will be the backing:

And maybe I’ll use the strip again in a border???
