Aunt Nancys Quilt



Last year at a quilt retreat I started this Sew Many Pieces quilt. I knew I was going to make it for my Aunt Nancy so emailed her and asked her for her favorite colors. Purple was in the list ( shew - I could find purple!) It turned out to be just smaller than a twin - but perfect for her couch. I finished it in October - I was sooo ahead of the game, and then forgot to mail it till December 11th... oh well. She did get it in time for Christmas.

I quilted it with light lavender thread. This is my Cousin Julie and the Quilt.

And then of course here is a small pic of the whole thing.


Happy New Year!!

The quilt is georgous. I've also made a purple (mine was called a monster).
Found you thru stashbusters. Definitely going to add you to my bloglines list. You've got some wonderful talent.
