I love using the color purple in my quilts and always find myself buying purple over all the other beautiful colors that are out there. I also immensely enjoy working with batiks as each piece of fabric has so much character. All of the fabrics used in this quilt are batiks purchased at various, non-corporate fabric shops. My joy is always finding a fabric or quilting store in a small town and making my patient husband wait while I go exploring for that unique piece of fabric. If there are antique shops near by – he can usually enjoy browsing through those.
This particular quilt took a long time to make as it was kind of a puzzle to do, using many different colors. I enjoyed making it, but probably won’t make another one. The backing is solid black. It covers the bed in our guest room.
Size: 96″ long x 88″ wide – will cover a queen size bed and hang over the top mattress. Price: $450
