Progress on my "Purple love"

Yep! "Purple love" is the name for my quilt. Since I really love purple, I'm going to give the quilt that name:o) I've never named a quilt before, always made quilts from other's patterns. But this time I made one from my own head, pretty much alike the scrap quilt I made this summer. This is sort of a "controlled scrap quilt", I think :o)
So easy to make, but I just love the way it looks :o) And this I'm keeping, and I look forward to get to use it!
It's not easy to see the true colors in this picture, since it's late at night, and the light in my sewing room mess the colors a bit. When I'm finished piecing it, I will take a photo outside, and then the colors will show better. Many of you already know these fabrics, I guess, so you have an idea :o)
I started collecting those fabrics when I made "Festfin frøken" back in November last year, and got the last piece I needed on Saturday :o) Lucky me, found the fabrics I needed at Quiltegården, Solfrids quiltestove and the last one at Polar Quilt. Yay!

It's been a rainy day (again....) today, and I've pretty much spend the whole day sewing. It's been a while since I've spend a whole day sewing, but it feels great, even if my back and my neck is almost killing me... But it's worth it!
Cannot wait to continue with it, and hope to find some time for a little sewing tomorrow too.

Good night, sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite ;o)
