    The Color Purple

    This is the first of 3 quilts I am making for some children that were recently put into foster care that I learned about from another board member. Was able to use all of it from my stash. As you can tell I like purple.... I started this last night and all I need now is to bind it. Will do that tomorrow and then get started on the next one.
