Default 150 pieces of purple

Our guild challenge this year was to use 150 different purple pieces in a quilted object. We had our showing at the meeting this week. I thought you might enjoy seeing the variety. Kansas State University is 150 years old this year so that is where the idea for the challenge came from. At the meeting, during program, we had each quilter tell about what she/he had done and share the story behind their quilt. It was so interesting to hear how people decided on what to do. Some were like me, they just made a quilt, but many had wonderful stories to share.The family is His on one side and Hers on other and at the bottom are their children; The next one was "Things I love about KSU"; The Log Cabin done in purples and white with school emblems; paper pieced fans in purples; Roads to KSU--in the middle is the emblem of Kansas State University; Mine --a QAYG not very imaginative; Apron--done by a most creative quilter who does lots of garments as well as regular quilts; And the last one is the university's main library "Hale Library" . There are 150 window panes on the front side of the library--each pane is a different purple.

Very creative! My daughter is attending KSU right now. These make for great ideas for a graduation quilt for her!
