    I have never seen a purple quilt that I didn't like!! Can't wait to see yours. (My default color for quilts is purple...)

    Yes, please post the purples. Love purples with greens and sometimes yellows. We just finished our "mom thing" today as she was released from in-home nursing care. YAY! Best wishes as you go through your "mom thing." :-)

    I'm so excited to see them all together in one quilt! Does she know you're making it? or is it going to be a surprise?

    My suggestion for monochromatic quilts is to use absolutely every fabric you find which is even remotely that color. The quilt will be gorgeous! For purples, use pinkish purples, cranberry redish purples, greyish purples, bluish purples, purples which are so light they are almost white, purples which are so dark they are almost black, etc.

    Can't wait to see Sara's purple quilt. I just know your going to make a beautiful quilt for her.
    How is your sister and niece doing since the burn out? Been praying for them. Praying your mom is doing well also.

    I'm a purple gal also. I agree with Justaabitcrazy about using it all. Need that variety to make it interesting to the eye. A nice change of pace I am sure from the stresses involved with caring for loved ones. Look forward to seeing what pattern you are thinking of using.
