Royal...Spiritual...Victorious!

I can hear you saying....."What is she talking about?!

I'm talking about the color purple!

I did a little research and it seems that purple is both a hot colour (because it is a mixture of red) and a cool colour (because it is also a mixture of blue!)

It is the colour of royalty.....


(Hollywood Royalty- Vale Liz)
And spirituality....

And some of my favourite flowers..... lavender, violets and orchids...


(Orchids in Singapore Botanical Gardens!)

and beautiful fabric!

This is the fabric I won on Red Pepper Quilts "7 Deadly Sins" Giveaway today!


There were nearly 600 entries!!!


Yummy Sarah Fielke "Little Things"......

Apparently violet is associated with PRIDE!

Love this quote from Red's blog.....

Pride is a personal commitment.
It is an attitude which separates excellence from mediocrity - source unkown.


I can't wait for my fabric to arrive!

And I don't need an excuse to make another quilt!

Or to go shopping...


(Purchased @ G&J Fabrics)

So I bought this today to supplement my win!

I have not made many quilts in purple...




But this one proudly adorns the wall of one of my friends.



It was a Kaffe Fassett pattern

It has indeed been a great week.....

I hope yours has been good too!

Happy sewing!

  3. congrats Suz! Purple and shades of purple are so lovely, but I too have not used it much in quilting. It is a vibrant color and should be used more often! You will make something fabulous - I am certain of that!!!
