Another Purple Cross

 80" x 90"

I had a request for a purple cross quilt in my shop. This one is a full sized quilt. Purple must be a lot of peoples favorite color as I've made 3 purple cross quilts. I used over 20 different fabrics to give this such a scrappy look. 


Here is my first attempt on the design wall. It was looking a little too pink purple so I took out the offending print. You can see on the cross where it's gone now.


Normally I would use a solid on the back of a bed quilt, but she is giving this quilt to be used on a couch and she wanted it to be big.  It is definitely big!  I found this beautiful purple print at Marshall's Dry Goods. I love their prices and the wide backings are pretty nice.


Here's a close up of the backing fabric. I actually ordered 3 different purple prints so I could choose the right color. I like this print and will use it again, hopefully in a different color.

    1. Shannon, does anyone know why the Blogger comments aren't emailing to the blog owners anymore? I'm on Blogger too and I'm FREAKING OUT because suddenly I'm not getting notifications and I can't figure out how to respond to any of the comments anymore!

    1. What is "their way," Judy? I can't find anything in their help files and I didn't get any notifications about a change. Very confused and frustrated with Blogger right now!
