    Default purple.......ok ya'll said never too much purple

    Here it is......I was running short on the print cutting the 91/2 in sqrs I wanted 16 4 across 4 down and came short on 2 so I pieced from the scraps 2 91/2 sqrs it is noticeable but I can live with it, and duh! the nite I finished the blocks I thought the next morning I would play and rearrange the blocks in different order and totality forgot until I had it all together then remembered but for the most part I pleased with it,I also made a bag for my computer with the fabric a few years ago. I still have to sandwich and quilt it..........any suggestions on the quilting? On a dsm thanks for looking

    Mandyrose- It came out magnificently !! It is better than I imagined it would be!! I will share it with my BQ quilting friends. I like how you made it your own by making that small change to include the lavender fabric. I am sitting here with tears of joy. You did it !! And in record time.

    Your quilt is beautiful! but the computer bag is awesome! especially with the flower accent. I still love that turquoise/purple flowered fabric.
