The Color Purple

Though opposites on the color wheel, purple and yellow complement and enhance each other. A Matter of Perspective is a predominately purple and yellow quilt.
Blue and burgundy work with purple to round out an analagous trio, while yellow is mixed with gold and orange.

Purple is positioned in Hybrid between it's parent colors of blue and red.

Purple thread creates an orchid outline in the background (upper right).

In Arms of Love, repetition of the large purple applique shapes are somewhat balanced with a smattering of purple squares in the border.

Red and gold in fabric and thread give definition and contrast to several shades of purple fabric in these feathers.
