    Purple Squares

    I made this quilt for a recently discovered Aunt that lives in Montenegro.

    (Dad had lost contact with his sister after he left the former Yugoslavia in the 1950's, her son found my brother on Facebook and now they have regular contact. They saw each other for the first time in more than 50 years on Christmas day, thanks to Skype.).

    I found out from her son that her favourite colour is purple so I came up with a pretty simple design in EQ. I sure hope she gets it as mail theft is common over there according to my Cousin.

    You said you found the pattern in EQ... help me out here. Not sure what the E stands for. Love your pattern and color combo.
