Violet Crumble front

Too bad this quilt isn't blue, that would fit my mood a bit more...
Not sure why or how, but yesterday by the time I was leaving work, all I wanted to do was to crawl in bed - maybe I can blame the rain? Today is no different... Last night was a taxing childbirth class - it focused on the exact opposite of my birth plan & yet it resonated in a "I must be prepared for that to be the outcome." way as well... (Healthy Baby, Healthy Baby, Healthy Baby)
Since that is my new mantra, that is how I am surviving the new diet. Day two & those are my feelings - this is going to be a long haul...
Back to the quilt, I chose it because it is one of the most popular on flickr. It is pretty close to 2 years old & it is the quilt that I am currently using on my bed. (That was coincidence - I was making my choice based upon flickr popularity.) This is the kind of quilt that i really enjoy making - use every purple (insert color) and go for it! Some low contrast, some high contrast, some dark, some light, some "does that go?" With the purple color - some reddish purple, some blueish purple!
Since i had already made this quilt, I had no problem culling purples from my stash - I still have some, but not near as much. (I like all colors.)
Bonnie was chatting about borders for the last couple of posts (sorry no links - blogging from flickr) This is my go to border (Besides using a novelty print) is is usually called piano key. I used the same fabric for the narrow inner and the outer border - to "hold in" the piano keys - & to make it easier for the long armer... :o)
Does any one else do monochromatic quilts?
FYI Violet Crumble is a candy bar from "Down Under" that is not on my diet even if I could get one... (I prefer the Mint Areo bars anyway...)
Please tell me that it is 3, so I can go home & hibernate all weekend long...
