    Years ago I planted a tulip bed with red and purple flowers. I don't know how I made that choice or why. At the time I was a serious gardener and had beautiful beds all around. I hosted garden tours at my home and sold perennials. Guess which bed was most commented on? You better believe it! Red and purple. Unusual is good! I love the red violet in your choices. They blend superbly. Have fun!

    oooh, I am an avid gardener too ~ that sounds beautiful! Now that you mention it, I have purple Iris / crocus & red tulip near each other, but they don't bloom at the same time!

    more progress... I've been camping with the kids so only worked on it while it was raining, or at night... nearly at the right width, got to add a few more inches ... And now that I have this strip, the fabrics have kinda told me where they want to go next... so I'll leave that as a surprise :)

    hubby is 6-ft tall, so I left the picture sideways to get the right effect.

    You are so good. From that original pile I was thinking you didn't have enough light fabric but the finished product says differently. Great job so far.

    These are my best friend's colors. You'd be surprised how well they go together.
