Purple has been a long time favorite color of mine. I've recently been introduced to the color addition of orange with purple, a combo I never thought I would embrace but am loving.
(Enough that my last set of Nubee blocks was purple and orange.)
Apparently, tangerine is THE color of 2012. I love geometrics.

I'm planning a few quilts in the purple/tangerine theme. Who knew I'd ever be on an "in" trend?!

  1. I love the fabrics you have chosen...looking forward to seeing your quilts

  2. I used some of the Flora and Floral Folio fabrics, too. The grays should add an interesting element.

  3. I like the grays! And purple is one of my favorite colors =)
