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

  1. I love your collection of purples for this quilt Jen. It will be awesome.

  2. Oh, I really like that you had an inspiration image for your fabric selection! The purple fabric you selected is lovely and I look forward to seeing them turn into a quilt. :)

  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.

  4. Lovely inspiration photo and beautiful fabrics!

    1. Thank you, Paige, the photo makes me look forward to the snow...kind of.

  5. wow fantastic photo Jen. The purple tones will be fantastic
