Purple Passion Quilt Homecoming

 The Purple Passion quilt arrived home from Modern Quilts Unlimited recently.  I'm so happy to have it back.  I always give my quilts a welcome home hug as soon as I get them out of the shipping box.  Thank you, MQU for taking such good care of my quilt.  Here's a peek into the making of the Purple Passion quilt:

 Six gorgeous fabrics from Timeless Treasures.

 Testing my block pattern.  This color combination would make an interesting quilt, too.

 Tracing curves for cutting.

 Six little purple rainbows.

 Flip side of blocks as they are being sewn into rows.

 The center of the quilt flying free on my clothesline.

 Pinning the solid black border into place.

 Purple squares sewn into strips for the next border.

Paper piecing triangles for the purple triangle border.

Fold and sew.

All the borders are on.

Swirly quilting.  

I only quilted over the black fabrics.




The backing fabric.

Purple Passion!

I'll be sleeping under this quilt tonight.  So warm and cozy.  The pattern for the Purple Passion quilt is in Issue 21 of Modern Quilts Unlimited.  If you sew a Purple Passion quilt, please send me a pic.  I would love to see it!
