Purple Days

Purple combines the calm stability of blue with the fierce energy of red. It’s often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury and power. Purple can represent wealth, creativity, wisdom, grandeur, devotion, peace, mystery, independence and magic.

We love designer Helen Howes’ use of purple in her Interpolations 3a / Inpurpleation Quilt (shown here in progress):

If you’re inspired, read the story behind her design and to make the project download the pattern from Helen Howes Textiles.
