Purple Comfort Quilt

I finished up my comfort quilt for March today.  I'm really pleased with it.

As I mentioned in my last post, this quilt is made up entirely of stash fabric that needed to be used up.

I used a variegated thread that I have had sitting around forever.  I honestly don't even remember why I ever bought it, it is not my style at all.  But it was perfect for this quilt.  I quilted with simple lines 1/4 inch from each seam.

The backing is my favorite part.  It is a Lizzy House print that I found on clearance for $1.48 a yard!!  I bought it knowing that it would be the backing to a purple comfort quilt one day.  I just love it!!

I used a matching purple in my bobbin instead of the variegated thread because I didn't want to distract from those adorable castles.

But, I did use the variegated thread on the binding - so cute!

It is amazing what a difference lighting makes.  The pictures above where taken outside under the shade of a tree.  Below is the same quilt in the house.

The inside pictures are closer to the actual colors.

Thanks for stopping by!
