I have never really been a pink and purple person; not even as a young girl. Okay, let me rephrase; I love bold, vibrant hot pink and coral, and rich shades of eggplant, plum, berry, and grape. Somehow though, over the years, I have amassed quite a stash softer shades of pink, orchid, and periwinkle. So many prints just sitting in my cabinet, taunting me with their lack of use.
I have friends with daughters who just looooove pink and purple, and from my time as a teacher, I know that lots and lots of girls seek out this combo. So, in the name of stash busting, I decided to go ahead and use several of these languishing fabrics to create one sugary-sweet quilt.
I've been practicing a brand new free motion motif that will match the sweetness of the colors, and I'm excited about putting it on the quilt for real!
