The Purple Quilt
They are both young ladies, but I didn't want to make them something in their age range because I don't want them to grow out of it in a few years. I want it to be a blanket they can cherish forever (as long as they continue to like purple). :)
For the first time ever, I pieced the back. That was fun and much easier than I thought it would be. I don't know why I was hesitating for so long. There is a mix of stitch in the ditch and free motion quilting. Also - I used continuous binding for the first time on this quilt. The bling is a series of 3 crystals every six inches set on the outer border. The quilt measures 42x42. It's quite a treasure to me - I hope Emily and April love it as much as I do.
