I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

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!


  1. I don't have a name for it but it's gorgeous.

  4. I think it's gorgeous!! Hmmmm..... maybe a navy blue back? Then it doesn't compete with the beautiful purples and greens.
    I think cozy comfort, when I look at this.
    Beautiful job :O)

  5. your quilt is beautiful. The black looks like stepping stones, over the pastels which remind me of a flower garden. What about "Garden Path" ?
