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I originally made this little quilt to enter in my guild's (Cotton Patch Quilters of Kern County) yearly challenge.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".
