Default Another graduation quilt

I gave my GD this quilt for her college grad quilt. She had asked for a purple quilt. I found a scrappy pattern and thanks to so many generous people on this board, who sent me scraps of purple batiks, I was able to put this together. The basic pattern was full to queen size, but with the addition of borders, it became king size. She loved it. This is a pic of corner detail in border.

This is a piece I sewed wrong, so I worked it into the border

And here is my GD with the finished quilt
