Emily Loves Purple

My son Loren’s long-time girlfriend Emily absolutely adores the color purple. Emily is 25 and has a bubbly personality. She’s a little modern, a little traditional. I just finished this “little” quilt for her for Christmas and sent it off to Kari to be machine quilted. I’d never get it hand quilted in time for Christmas.

This is a pattern called “Snowball” – a traditional pattern. I looked for as many purple batiks and FUN fabrics as I could find, and they are anchored by a lovely green. This started out to be a twin size quilt, but it fits nicely on my queen size bed. Hmmmm… now there’s a thought!

Shhhhh – it’s a secret!
