A Lotta Bit of Purple
In our family the opposite of “a little bit” is “a lotta bit.” This newest quilt has more purple in it than exists in my entire home. We’re not really purple people. Or pink.
The whirlygig block was one that I had always wanted to try. I made one block for a swap once and I was surprised at how easy it was. So out came all of the lovely purple fabrics from my stash. I really don’t ever work with purple but I have to say that I genuinely enjoyed it. It just a pretty color. I love it against the white background.
I found the perfect spot to photograph this quilt- with some help from my son (such a good sport!) Can you believe this little house? How cute is that? It has a little porch, a little front door and a little walk leading up to it. It’s all just oozing with charm. What an appropriate place to photograph a little quilt.
The quilt measures 40” x 40” The backing is not a pieced backing like I usually do, but instead I used a single print fabric. You can see it peeking out in the photo below.
This quilt is listed in my shop.
