A few weeks ago I had a dear friend who was hit by a car. She broke her tailbone in 2 places, fractured pelvis and a variety of other things. She is in for a LONG recovery. When I spoke with her, she said that seeing friends and family around has helped keep her spirits up so much. Living 8 hours away, I wanted to see her but there just isn't any way to get there and back again...and thus her quilt was born.
I raided all the old pictures I could find, loaded them into Picasa, made several collages, and today finally had the free time to piece the top! I plan on simply tying the layers together, otherwise she won't get this in time to help with recovery which leads to my question-- the backing is purple. Tie it with purple yarn so it all blends, or go with something to make it pop? Any suggestions?
