Color choices for the modern quilter

Ok, this week a new color scheme is on my schedule and since you kindly gave me a vote it’s: purple. (Some people even suggested to combine the two in one design. Great idea, I will get back to it with a later post. In this color scheme is actually a bit of green, kind of, the middle of the last row. Is it called kakhi?).
Purple potatoes (I’ve never eaten some. Did you?). But at least those colors look so yummy.

Color choice purple
Did you ever try purple potatoes and how did you like the taste?
Dienstag – und ein neues Farbschema. Und Violett ist die Farbe.
Lila Kartoffelschnitze, ob sie wohl so lecker schmecken wie sie aussehen? Ich hab sie noch nie versucht.
Hast du schon mal welche gegessen und wie haben sie geschmeckt?

Liebe Brigitte!
Das sind ja ganz tolle Farbkombinationen. Nicht meine Komfort Zone, gefällt mir aber ausnehmend gut! Denkst du schon an Kurse für Ö? Ich melde mich die Tage bei dir.
Liebe Grüße
Michi :)

Gorgeous colours! Yes I've tried purple potatoes, my parents grew some and we had bright purple mashed potatoes one night when I visited - it was quite interesting to take the first bite as they didn't look particularly edible :) I didn't find they had much flavour particularly, rather bland on the scale of potato flavours; but perhaps they are better suited to baking or chips or something. Still, the colour made up for the lack of taste!

I am loving purples lately, but I've never seen purple potatoes! Do they taste any different?

I really like those colours together!

Cille hat gesagt… Best Blogger Tips

Love the colors... It's funny. I have never used purple - never really liked it - but the more I quilt the more I learn to appreciate every color. Just bought a FQ bundle of Heirloom Sapphire and there's a lot of purple in it so I'll soon be making my first purple quilt.

the cool thing about purple potatoes, after you cook them they are no longer purple. I love the color. Im wearing it today!

Purple potatoes are real?! Wow, what an awesome color they are. Your post reminded me of design seeds where they take pictures and put color chips underneath to inspire. Purple is going to be the main focus of my decorating for my coming-soon daughter, thanks for the color palette to consider!

Bin gerade auch im Lila-Fieber, daher gefaellt mir das Farbschema ausgesprochen gut.

Chelsea hat gesagt… Best Blogger Tips

Oh, wow, your dark targets pattern would be amazing in this palette!

Oh, and unfortunately purple potatoes taste like the regular ones and turn grey when cooked.

I love purple potatoes. I love all potatoes (comes from the Peruvian genes, I think)

Marlene @ KISSed Quilts . com hat gesagt… Best Blogger Tips

sehr gut!

I have enjoyed purple, I think they normally call them 'blue' potatoes. I've seen them packaged in the U.S. during 4th of July season with red, white and blue potatoes in one sack.

the purple is beautiful!

Melinda hat gesagt… Best Blogger Tips

Never seen the inside of a potato that colour, it is rich looking. Getting your colours just right is the first step..!

Katherine hat gesagt… Best Blogger Tips

I've never considered purple one of my top colour choices, but after seeing the palette you've compiled, I'm tempted!

Oh, yes, I've had purple potatoes and love their taste. My mom grew them and someday I would like to have them in a garden of my own. They are delicious and definitely a conversation starter as they look so foreign! lol
