QuiltyCat's color choices unified her sampler blocks. Note the different
shades of green and violet in the cornerstones: scrappy yet tied together.
Many of you put your blocks together with purple sashings and borders, using the symbolic colors of the English suffragettes, who used a variety of names and a variety of purples. Their consistent emphasis on
violet, green and white communicated their message and their identity as the most radical of the British groups.
Cookie's Creek sashed with a purple print,
the background of her sunflower block in the center.
Beryl used many purple shades in the sashing cornerstone squares.
Karen in Tucson (1 of 3 tops)
She's framed a variety of violets with a bright purple inner border.
Susan at Stitching Witch
Purples pushed almost to grays. She also used grayed vintage photos.
Scroll down to recent posts to see how other quilters used a range of violets.
