It is a rather saturated version of periwinkle I would say. It looks rather blue, but the purple in it is very strong in person. I know this color as 'blue shock' because that was the name of the paint I picked for my bedroom once....that was this exact color. O youth. Anyway, I really really love this choice and it compliments the will be raspberry elements so well. If you look really closely, you can see where I began the reverse applique stitching in raspberry Perle cotton thread. I am still finishing up the borders, but the final reveal of 'part one' of this quilt will be soon!
Also, did you notice my needlebook? That was the third and final project for this round of projects. It is made of felted wool and is so perfect for fitting everything you need for a nice hand stitching project.
I used a piece from the Flea Market Fancy Legacy line for the inner lining. I love some FMF. Now back to borders so I can be ready to start week 3, the second round of projects!
