As a little background, before we get into the true purpose of the post, I want to let you know that I have a true love of purple. I have yet to let this love out in the realms of fabric, because I have not had any place to put the pretty purples. But it is real. It is true. And it needs to be told to the world. So this challenge is basically written for me. You know, if you forget about the part where I actually have to finish something... But back to the story!
Pantone (who are apparently some kind of important colour people) have this thing where they nominate a colour of the year. And guess what 2014 is!!
It's the year of Radiant Orchid!!
So I am entering the challenge over at Play Crafts and On the Windy Side to make myself a purple something something. Wanna come play too?? I know you do!! I have been reading all your comments saying how tempted you are... Do it... Join us on the dark side...
I think that I may not have quite the right shade of purple either. My purple is more purple-y and violet, but the purple for the challenge is really heading towards fuchisa... I ahven't decided if this makes me inelligable or if it doesn't matter. And either way, maybe I want to grab that stack of slightly more "Radiant Orchid"y fabrics that's still sitting on my table and whip up a mini with those!!! I have two months!! I can work all kinds of magic!*
*Note that over the last 18 months, I have not completed a single quilt.
