I was asked recently to make a purple, throw-sized quilt. I agreed and then looked at the purples in my stash...hahaha I don't have much purple.
I had to do some fabric shopping! Thanks to Connecting Threads I filled up and didn't break the bank.
Here she is, in all her purple glory!
I've been wanting to try out Maureen Cracknell's Herringbone, Quilt-As-You-Go pattern for awhile and this looked like a great opportunity.
It was a super quick quilt to make! I made a little pillow to go along with it since there were some left over strips.
I'm not the biggest fan of purple, hence the lack of it in my stash, but it turned out beautifully!
I used my favorite of the purple fabrics for the backing. Isn't that fun!?
She asked for a foot pocket on the back. I'd never done one, but it was pretty simply addition. I did it in flannel to add some cuddly factor.
This quilt made it to its new home today! I know it will be enjoyed :)
