A Splash of Purple

I'm not sure just what it is about the color purple, but I seem to find myself sewing with it A LOT.   I don't wear it and I don't decorate with it, but it manages to find itself in my quilts.  Hmmm.   Maybe someone is trying to tell me something.

I started this quilt probably four or five years ago, got bored with it and put the blocks aside.  Maybe it was the purple.  Anyway, last year I dragged the blocks out, sewed them together and sent it off for quilting.  Again....there it sat with no binding for over a year.  Was it too purple???? 



This month I dragged it out once more and finally sewed that binding on and now can say it's completed.  Do you see all the green in it???  I do.  Sew...it's finished.  Yeah.
