Texas Two-Step – On point framed with purple

My husband set up my blog and choose one of my Texas Two-Step Quilts for the first post.  I love scrap quilts.  The pattern in scrap quilts is determined by differences in value.  For this quilt my Friday Bee chose a “light” common background to be used with medium/dark reproduction prints.

Once the blocks were made and put in a straight set on the design wall the quilt was boring.   Setting the blocks on-point and framing them with purple saved this quilt.  Mary Ellen Hopkins said “Purple goes with everything”.  I am a believer!!!
