    Here is my design that I am wanting the purple fabric for. The fabrics I used in the graphic are found at Hobby Lobby, however, the quality is just not there. So, I am looking for similars. :)

    Joann's had a lovely purplish fabric with hycinth blossoms on it. I bought it and used it as a backing and I was thrilled. It was thick and sooooo soft. Try looking at Joann's.

    Love tonals but I really try to stay away from batiks. Batiks are too "chaotic" for me. I am just narrow minded in that way. lol :)

    check out various websites for batiks (bali), there are many that are "toned down".

    I also love purple fabrics and have found that Debbie Beaves does, too. I have many of her purple fabrics and am very happy with the quality of them - RJR fabrics.

    You can visit her website here:

    http://www.violetpatch.com/shop/

    Be sure to check her "Going, going, gone" section for 4 pages of 50% off fabrics, some as low as $3 a yard!

    Otherwise, you can search here:

    http://quiltshops.com/

    for purple fabrics, too.

    I love the design you've shown here. I'm sure whatever fabrics you choose with make for a lovely quilt. I hope you'll show us what fabrics you find and keep us posted on your progress.

    I love your quilt! Im not a purple person, I have very little of it, but I always see it out! There is no shortage of it in Michigan or Toledo!
