Saturday in Purple....

This week I decided to work on the butterfly quilt. I have it all pieced to the first border. Then came the decision and playing part.

I laid out the bonus triangles with the lights together.
Then tried them as triangles next to the inner border.

I decided I liked the first layout better. Unfortunately, it will not line up nice at the end of the rows. My solution - just add a little color to each end and then some strippy color for each of the four corners. I have just enough of the jelly roll left to do this I think.

 

The part that was originally stopping me on this quilt is that I don't have any more of the fabrics. I had the purple butterfly fabric in mind as the outer border. I purchased this roll a few years ago and doubt I would be able to find any...... so a trip to Joann's Thursday night after bowling and I found something I believe will work. I have loved working with the last of a batik purple that was in my nieces' graduation quilt a couple of years ago... and found something very similar that will become the outer border and binding for this quilt. Isn't this a pretty purple! I plan to use any leftovers in my grandmothers choice blocks!
Head on over to Soscrappy and see all the purple projects this month.
