    Just finished binding today! This quilt is in memory of my grandma. She loved lavenders and ribbons. This is the 3rd quilt I have made in this pattern.

    OMG ! that is beautiful!!! such a pretty design, workmanship is great.

    By the way, if it's taking up too much space at your house, I'll take it off your hands, as my favorite color is purple... :lol: :roll:

    This is a great tribute to your grandmother. You did a beautiful job on both the piecing and the quilting.

    Thank you all for all the wonderful replies. You are all soooo encouraging. I cant take credit for the quilting part. I wish I could. I paid to have it quilted. I dream of having a long arm someday but for now the big quilts get shipped off to a lady that has a LA.
