Purple Passion Quilt

 Today I'm showing the Purple Passion quilt.  This quilt features curvy paper pieced blocks with a matching border of squares and triangles.

Quilt Stats:
Quilt Size:  82-1/2" x 94-1/2"
Block Size:  12" x 12"
Fabric: Tonga Batiks and Pop, by Timeless Treasures
Batting:  Warm 100, by the Warm Company
Thread:  King Tut, by Superior

These are the beautiful fabrics used in the Purple Passion quilt. The quilt top features four purple batiks and one charcoal fabric.  The second from the bottom is the backing fabric.

The Purple Passion block features paper foundation pieced curved sections alternating with the charcoal fabric.

In this photo you can see the border.  The border echoes the curved block design with pieced squares and triangles in the same color sequence.  You can also see the swirl quilting design.  I only quilted over the charcoal fabric, using a matching thread.

Here is a photo of the Purple Passion quilt on my bed.  It fits well!  I have a King sized bed.  This would drape over the sides nicely on a Queen size, too.

The Purple Passion quilt and pattern are featured in the new issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited, Issue 21.  It begins on page 14.  This should be available at your local quilt shops now, or you can order either a digital or print copy online here:  MQU Issue 21

If you sew a Purple Passion quilt, please share a photo.  I would love to see it!
