Months after the quilt went to it's forever new home, I received a photograph of the happy couple. Not only did the purple match the ribbon in the brides bouquet, the groom wore a magenta tie. Without knowing this, I made a quilt to match. It gives me goosebumps to this day.
As purple is a colour I do not use very often, this helped me to embrace the colour a bit more. Since then I have made a puple logcabin quilt as well. We all have favourite colours which we enjoy working with, it is what is we are comfortable with.
