    you are so right!
    It's a long story but the original idea was to make a lap quilt (48x 60) for Pat (Steve's sister) as she's been sick & in the hospital for several months. It was suppose to be like a home coming surprise for her. I asked Steve what her favorite colors were. He said Purple & Yellow. So I cut that one out and was partly sewed and he emailed me back & said he screwed up that was his wife's colors (Pam) So now the new colors were to be Purple & Blue. So I told him he might as well give me his favorite color to and that was Red. Well that's how this got started and this was the best I could do before October 20th. I am not to thrilled how the Purple & Yellow turned out because I clipped so many points but after redoing it a second time (tossing the first one) I gave up and just let them be what they are. I ended up tying all 3 because I have not learned to free hand or free motion yet. Some day when I have time to learn how to do them that way I would love to take another shot at the purple & yellow one cause I really like those blocks.

    the Yellow one is called "Little Blossom" and the Purple one is a simple "Tulip" pattern. I'm not sure where I got the Little Blossom pattern but the Tulip is one I redesigned from a harder pattern. I made it simpler so I could do it.

    I love them all esp. Pam's. The binding looks like thick cording and I had to give it a second look. Great job.

    You've really been hard at work and the results are beautiful. I love, love, love the purple fabric you used in both Pat and Pam's. Now I'm gonna have to go and find it! Congrats on finishing - just in time.

    They are all fantastic. Can you explain for me how you did the border on both the front and back to look the same. I really love the look of the back with the border.
