green/purple fun

I couldn't wait to piece some of the strip sets and make some blocks with this combination. I sewed all of the lighter combinations so there isn't very much of the darkest green in here yet. I didn't have quite enough blocks to finish this layout. I didn't have the book down in the basement by my design wall so I just tried some layouts that were fresh in my memory from the purple/yellow batch.
It is quite light and bright with only a few of the darkest greens.
I know I will have to make one in the zig zag pattern but I might wait and make it out of all of the leftover blocks from both groups. Someone reminded me that I have the On Demand feature with the digital box from Comcast so I checked it out and one of the shows I missed seeing was on the list so I watched it while piecing the blocks. I was surprised how many shows I normally watch that aren't on their list though. I will still have to catch them on my computer until I can figure out the VCR problem.

You continue to use colors that are so amazing together! I love to come visit and see what you're putting together. LOVE the green/purple, in all of the combinations of blocks.

I think that the green and purple combo is my favorite so far. I just love them together. They remind me of Irises. Yes, that on demand feature is terrific. We tend to use it quite a bit. Lots of stuff is free too.

Janet said...

love these colors. Again, it looks like fun to play with the layout.

They all look so beautiful. I can't believe the many options with that block.

Kathy said...

For some reason I really like the zig zag setting of the green and purple blocks.

julia said...

Each arrangement of blocks is so different that I would have a really hard time saying which I like best, but I think it's the first one. You can't go wrong with this color combo though. Purple, green and yellow work no matter what!

Mary said...

Oh the combination of purples and greens is so beautiful and I love the zig zag pattern the best! They are all great though.

Pat Deck said...

Aw, ya gotta make enough blocks to finish that ist layout -- it's stunning!!!!! Not that the other's aren't great, but that star just glows.

Maria said...

Wow!!! Just love the purple and green combo. The first one is my favorite but they are all great.

QuiltSue said...

I love the top layout, but then, I suppose I would. I love stars!

Julie Bagamary said...

Striking color combination!! I like the star.

hetty said...

I love the first layout, but they are all great! The zigzag one looks interesting too, but stars are my favourite! I love them all and wouldn't know which one to pick.

quiltmom said...

Love the green and purple combo and the first layout is my favorite because it looks like expanding stars.
You make such beautiful quilts.
Thanks for sharing.

Glad that you found the disappearing nine patch helpful.I am sure you have lots of beautiful fabrics to use that will make an interesting 9 patch quilt.
I have lots more charm squares to sew together that could be used in a scrappy one- it was interesting to see the difference when one used a scrappy palette versus using a set palette with repeating fabrics. I will be interested to see your new version/s..

The star layout is very striking. Very breath-taking! The colours you chose are awesome. Thanks for the eye-candy.

Hey I'm not anonymous. I hit the wrong key. I'm just a crappy keyboarder!

All the purple and green combinations are lovely!

Purple Pam said...

All the quilt layouts are great. Thank you for showing us these layouts. It is great to see someone else's designs. If I am working alone, I don't think of all the possibilities. That is why I like taking classes. It is fun to see what other's will discover using the same basic block design.

Catherine said...

Wow -- the green and purple absolutely sparkles and glows! I like all the layouts, but the first and last one on this post are really spectacular!

Hi Wanda,
It's amazing how much depth is created with your fabric choices!
I like the star the best, but the boxes is great, too.
And at night the quilt could double as a night light!
