While at Camp Stitchalot, I decided to make an improv quilt in all purple. Somehow, I have grown to love purple. When I was young years ago, one didn’t wear purple unless you were a girl of ill repute! Ha, but now it’s fun to use and wear purple.
And here’s the finished quilt! I named it ” A Few Nights at the Improv”.
I quilted it with curved lines. Here’s a closeup of the quilting.

Great insight on the color purple. I knew it was associated with royalty.
I just love this little quilt and the beautifully wonky organic wavy lines.
Your quilt is beautiful!
The red thing explains Mae West and her lush deep red dresses.
It is peculiar what different locations and cultures consider colors mean. Also age groups. In the 60’s in my environment black was for bad girls or funerals. In the 80’s it meant you were weird or odd or non conforming. In the 90’s it is naughty and sexy. Today it’s just something to wear.
Thought it was black.. all black.. meant you were a very bad girl. Purple though meant young as in baby kid.
Widows wore all black back in the 1940s and ladies of the night wore red and purple. Babies wore lavender. Isn’t it funny what different parts of the country have for traditions.
