It's Purple....

Purple Quilt ....
Appliques are done,
top is pieced and
I'm ready to put the border on.
I think I'm going to piece a "scrappy purple and white" strip for around the edges, then bind with white.

QUESTION: How to quilt this? Any suggestions?????

Really cute! I would probably do an allover design, echoing around the applique shapes and adding little curls and loops. Maybe do some line-dancing in the four-patches. Can't wait to see it!

well i was gonna say almost the same... sometimes i just echo the shapes like ripples in a pond and then when they meet i wing it.

how sweet are those appliques?!?

since I am not a quilter, I honestly don't have any suggestions, but I am certain that however you proceed you'll end up with perfection in purple!

will you be sharing the goodies in the package from MM?!? inquiring minds want to know! *grins*
