Purple Rain

Here it is.  The second to last entry in the Focus Through the Prism Challenge.  The inspiration block was 9 Patch.  I call this Purple Rain.
I did some curved piecing and string piecing to make each of the nine patches.  Some of the strips have small bits pieced in them.  I quilted straight lines, from top to bottom, and varied the distance between the quilting lines.  Hubby helped me decide what thread to use for quilting.  The top half of each quilted line is done with a purple variegated cotton and a polyester iridescent threaded together through the needle.  The bottom half of the lines are done in a solid purple cotton.  The final touch was hot-fix crystals.
