    Interesting color combo: Blue and dark purple

    I thought this fabric design colorway was intriguing. The background is a deep eggplant purple. I thought this block pattern would look neat if placed "on point".

    Very bold and makes a nice statement! I like the contrast with the third fabric as well. Have a great day.

    You are right it is very interesting on point. It is very lovely as it is. What a great variation in print size you have. That makes a quilt interesting to look at too. I want to see this one in person. I bet the true colors aren't coming through. It looks wonderful as it is but I bet it is even more lovely in person.

    "ew" .".....That was my initial thought when I saw the fabric collection. Now I love it! Have to think outside the box! A tough excercise at times.

    I agree, on point would be a nice effect to an already beautiful design.

    I really like this different color combination, since I am so drawn to the darker combinations (probably because i am always tinking of stains) I think this is ideal - it is beautifully done and the "on point" I really like too! Great job - thanks for sharing!

    It is stunning on point and with the purple eggplant color as a backdrop! Very elegant, your placement of colors and patterns and shapes is nice.

    I think it works well. Very nice!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
