Friday morning, Bonnie Hunter released the third clue for her annual mystery quilt-along -- purple 4-patches. As I was in the midst of iron tote production at the time, I couldn't start Clue 3 till Sunday.
I'm not sure which direction I want to go with the purples ....
My first idea was to make them like the neutrals, with similar color and value. I chose two red-purples to go with the magentas, but in the end they are so close in color and value that they blend into one big blob.
I also thought about staying on the lighter grayish side of purple since I already had quite a few strips cut.
These are kinda bland, but might work as long as a strong dark/light pattern is not required. So today I tried making pairs with more value contrast.
I think I'm done until I can see where these units will go in the quilt. I can always use the rejects in something else.
