What to call it?
Well, I finished the quilt top. And it's so large I had to lay it out in my living room.
It's like the Hulk and the Purple Phantom got in a fight.....Grapes of Wrath.....Aurora Borealis on steroids.
But anyone who knows me knows this quilt is right up my ally. I love love love Purple, and something about purple and green together is magical. And man are some of these fabrics crazy. I have a person in mind for this quilt, but it might be a little larger than she was thinking of. It's roughly 78"x90" or a generous full/comfy queen size.
Not sure what color to back it with, but powerful colors demand something a little less loud, but not your boring old beige either.
I plan to machine quilt this with a black thread, to highlight the secondary pattern in the quilt top. And make it washable, because this thing just screams weekend nap quilt!
Heave ho, here we go!
