Blogger's Quilt Festival: Purple and Gray Quilt



Welcome to one of my favorite times of the year in the blogging world - the blogger's quilt festival! If you are new to my blog, please take a minute to look around and thank you so much for stopping by. And if you're not new, thanks so much for visiting again.


Anyway here is what I affectionately call the Purple and Gray Quilt (creative name, I know).

I made this quilt to celebrate the birth of my friend's adorable baby girl in the spring of 2011. My friend is a designer so I thought that a graphic quilt would be perfect. I love the black and white fabrics with just a pop of color. My favorite part of this quilt is the back and the binding. At this time a lot of people must have had a similar idea because I saw lots of quilts popping up on the internet with a similar design...I guess great minds think alike!

Anyway, this is one of my favorite quilts - I love the color combo with the plum and the shades of gray.
