This year I thought I would participate in the Blogger's Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy's Creative Side.  I always gain such inspiration from other quilters and love to see their accomplishments.  It's such a great way to develop new ideas.  Be sure to drop in and join, or view all the great works from bloggers all over.

My "Purple Haze" quilt came from a desire to do a 2 color quilt.  I usually do scrappy quilts which involve pulling out lots of bins of fabrics  to get everything I need to cut.  I had these 2 beautiful pieces of batik just waiting to be sewn into something...but what?  Finally I decided to paper piece these 13 blocks and then set them on point.  This was the first project I ever set on point and calculating those triangles was a challenge.  I learned that "bigger is better" and you can always trim them down!  I just LOVE this color combination and I get to see it everyday in the bathroom!
