    Purple Scrappy

    I wanted to use up my stash of purples and experiment around with seeing if I could create a feeling of depth by organizing the different values. I determined the values by taking a black and white photo of my purples. I'm pleased with the way it came out.
    Thanks for looking!

    a lot of dimension, like an optical illusion. very pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You did a terrific job on this quilt especially all the points. You did a good job of finding the values to add dimension to the quilt. Thanks for sharing.
