Purple FANtastic Entry



I decided to take the plunge and enter a quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival this year.



I originally made this little quilt to enter in my guild's (Cotton Patch Quilters of Kern County) yearly challenge.  This year's challenge was to make a monochromatic quilt.  As you can see I went with purple - a color a don't normally work with.  I used the Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool to make sure my fabric selections were all within the same color range.  Using Carol Doak's pattern, Jeweled Fans, this little creation was fun to foundation paper piece.  I call it "Purple FANtastic".

Blogger's Quilt Festival Stats

Beautiful! Love purple. My youngest daughter painted her bedroom (several years ago) dark purple with pearl stripes. It is gorgeous.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know
this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with
