I am visiting my sister-in-law in Virginia, and we had quite a discussion about what mauve really is. We looked online at the Crayola site and they have no crayon called mauve. Then I looked on the Pantone site, and found mauve to look quite a bit like this. The color on Wikipedia is also similar. My SIL was kind enough to let me have a piece of this to use.
I traveled with my small box of my favorite scraps, and decided to pull them out to see if they would play nicely, and they did.
There was a little bit of the turquoise in the box, but I had a bigger piece I bought in Annapolis the other day. I thought it would make a great compliment. Currently, I am prone to thinking that orange goes with just about anything, so I had to use that. I think I am going to use this format for making my blocks in this series. I have always liked looking at small complex works framed by chunky frames. I included the mauve in the center piece of made fabric, as well.
I am looking forward to seeing what other colors Victoria has up her sleeves.
