My DH's high school colors are purple & gold, so this was a fun block to work on. Here is my grape fabric, with veggies:
I added fabrics that went with the colors in this print:
Here is the made fabric:
and all of them together:
I would probably use this color again, but I'd have to go shopping because I don't have too much purple in my stash right now. I remember buying the multicolor fabric with the squares in Seattle on a whim thinking it I'd use it in a quilt for one of my kids, but they really didn't like it, so its been in the stash for quite awhile. I like it in the grape block.
I like the look of them on the cheddar. a color I never hav. I have always been a blue-green gal with cool colors. I think I need to play with reds, oranges and cheddar.
Love the boldness of your new block! The jewel tones really shine with that cheddar!
The grape works so well on the cheddar. And I continue to be amazed at how well the Cheddar works with everything else--I worried over which neutral to get as my background color for these Challenge blocks, and look how great yours look on a non neutral!
Nice collection, Jane! I wouldn't have thought I would like grape and cheddar, but it is very effective.
