purple patchwork… with panthers, pigs and polka dots!

Another patchwork square quilt!

Again, I’ve used a number of wonderful Etsuko Furuya prints – this time in shades of purple, turquoise and green, and I’ve added in several solids in shades of those colors.

I loved this one from the moment I put these fabrics together, and it just got better as I cut them into squares and mixed them all up. There’s something about the purple, aqua and this shade of limey green that really draws me in… which is kind of weird, since I’m not usually a purple person. In fact, my stash of purple fabrics is nearly nonexistent, but now I’m thinking I really should do something about that!

For the back, I went with a little more purple! Two solids in different shades, with a touch of the Echino dots in purple.

I bound it in a third shade of purple (Raisin… yet another fabulous solid!)

I love to try out various quilting patterns on these quilts, so this time I went for double straight lines on the diagonal. I shifted it a bit so the quilting lines were offset from the diagonals of the squares. As usual, my description of this is probably lacking, but you can probably see what I’m talking about in the first photo in this post.

This one measures 37″ x 40″, and makes for a fresh and modern baby quilt. Or I can totally picture it as a fabulous quilt for hanging out with a baby on the floor. Or even as a wall hanging… fun, right? It’s listed in the shop!
