Quilting with Running Stitch and embroidery thread, dreaming of purple.........

I'm quilting this in running stitch with colorful embroidery thread.

Close-up of my Citrus Rose quilt, my design.

 I've been finishing up my quilt, Citrus Rose, using running stitch and embroidery thread. I love the look, lots of texture. 
I also pulled out some log cabin blocks I started a while ago because I knew they needed purple added, I had a vision. I dream about color, do you? Purple was calling to me, the perfect contrast to orange, so much contrast they actually end up complimenting each other. Kind of like opposite personalities in people. There can be a lot of sparks with opposites but wow, they bring out the beauty in each other so wonderfully. 
This is my Tuesday progress, dreaming of purple............
P.S. Don't miss the great book giveaway at The Root Connection . Cultural Fusion is a must have!

Log Cabin blocks, purple + orange = love.

Fabulous purple batik...

Running stitches in different colors. Great idea. I'm going to try this myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

Gorgeous beautiful colour! I love your quilt blocks - they are wonderful, and the orange is perfect with the purple, just as you say - and yes, I dream of colour. I love bright colours, wore them a lot as a child but just can't work with them now!
