Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along

I am joining the Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along hosted by QuiltingJetGirl. Today's post is about color. The beautiful quilt Yvonne has designed uses just three colors. 


I used this photo, entitled Snow is Not White in the Night, from Kimmo Kulovesi as my inspiration. I have been thinking for a long time that I need to make myself a quilt in purple, and have decided this will be the one. 


 These look more blue then they really are. That dark purple is scrumptious in real life.  I'm so excited for the next step in the Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along! We are just getting started. Check out the first post here with instructions for fabric selection and amounts.

Happy Stitching
Jen

  3. I love your purples. I am doing a purple quilt in another pattern, and the more purples I buy, the more I realize I cannot have too many purples.
