Purple Parade finish!

I feel like I have been away for a long time..and in fact have not blogged for a very long time. I am still here....and actually have been getting some sewing in now and again!

My finish:  Purple Parade...

I tried straight line quilting for this one, on the diagonal. I didn't have a Hera marker (gotta get me one of those!) but used the edge of my sewing machine screw driver to make a light mark to follow...

The back is a mauve fabric, with a few of the leftover blocks from the front.

I think purple is my new favourite colour!

My daughter was home for a couple of I had a little helper with me...Zoe...isn't she cute!

So I am going to link up to TGIFF and go over and see what inspiration there is in everybody else's finishes.  Have a good weekend!


  1. Well you had a big day and lots of things to do and then recoup. Love the purple quilt and oh, what a sweet face, kisses!

  2. A great finish Flo, purple seems to be the "it" color this season. I see it everywhere, guess I better add so me to my stash. I haven't tried the hera marker either.

  3. i really like the way you use 'leftover' blocks on the back of the quilt...makes the back so much more interesting!

  4. What a cute quilt, I love purple too! I like your ingenious use of the screwdriver as well :-)

  5. A great quilt! Purple is such an awesome colour =D

  6. Very lovely colors, great diagonal quilting design.

  7. I love purple, too. Such a pretty quilt. Don't you just love a diagonal quilting design.

  8. I love this quilt. :D Well done!


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
