So my very best friend is getting married and I would like to give a quilt as a wedding gift. I am not a quilter, but I've dabbled, and I'm crazy busy, between working 70 hours a week, getting ready to move out of the country to join the Peace Corps, planning the March bachelorette party, etc. So I found this quilt design that's really simple and goes pretty quickly (although I can't believe how much ironing is involved!). I guess I could have just gone with something off her registry, but I wanted to do something more personalized. Plus, I feel bad that I'm her maid of honor but I won't be at the wedding, since I'll be in Asia with the Peace Corps!
I'm wondering about what colors to use. My friend's favorite color is purple, and I'm wondering how to best incorporate purple. Here are the color combos I was thinking about. I only made a few blocks, since I didn't want to waste a bunch of time making them if i'm not going to use them.
This is what I originally had in mind:
But then I thought just white:
I love all the purples I have (I have a bunch more than what's here), but I don't know if it's too much. I think the white with the purple center squares might be nicer? It looks cleaner and more elegant, but not as much fun.
Please share your thoughts! I want to make a really nice gift for her!
