Trend Talk: Purple

Every month, we highlight a trend in quilting and show you how you can add this hip style to your projects!


We’re obsessed with the color purple! And if you own the Fall/Winter issue of Quilt Sampler, you can tell how much we love it by the beautiful purple batik quilt we featured on the cover. (Buy the latest issue here.) Stumped at how to use this color in your quilts? We chose some of our favorite new fabric lines that play with purple. As you can see below, purples range from light to dark and some shades that even border on blue. Use a graphic purple floral as the star of your quilt or a eggplant print as a subtle background. There are so many ways to add purple to your quilts! These fabrics are sure to have you running to the store to grab some and start quilting!
