I am excited to be planning 2 purple monochromatic quilts.
I'm looking for the red star quilt where the blocks form a large star (ohio??) See post #4 for photo. Really incredible.

I have amassed a large collection of purple batiks but they fall into 2 different color families. I have a collection that is more a violet-blue and then another collection that is violet-plum (or red). Would you only use one color collection or consider these both as "purples" and mix them? I am thinking that maybe because you want the look to be more uniform for the Ohio Star one to only use one collection (my favorite is the violet blue one) and then maybe using both mixed for the Economy quilt. I would like to hear other opinions as I find color selection to be very difficult.
Here are my collections. The first photo is all fabrics, the second is the violet-blue one and the last is the violet-plum one. Thanks.
