My Purple Passion with An Orange Twist

Thought I’d throw a purple photo essay your way today, especially after my lengthy treatise about pattern writing this past Tuesday.  I’m a fan, a big fan of PURPLE as you can see:

  1. I have replied to your request. I am curious is that a quilt pattern or upholstery pattern on the paper. I have a Moleskine filling up with my two quilts that leave in two weeks to the military over there.


  2. Is that Me? Quilt Knit, listed as a winner? Wow! Now, that is a lovely Surprise!
    Oh, My colors a long time ok were– Purple and Gold.
    Of course you know that Purple and Orange compliment each other and therefore make the colors intensify. There is one exception to this rule. Liquitex had a very remarkable production of the colors to use to see this vibrancy. However, the Purple and Orange did just the opposite. When you placed the orange dot and purple dot together – it made purple go Gray! I look for that in nature all the time.
    Love those Photos have some Purple Mums will share after the Rain.
