    I was given a large stash of quilting fabric

    And I decided to make at least one quilt to donate. Here's my progress:

    Name:  purplequilt.jpg

Size:  1.02 MB

    Everything except the very light blue in the upper left, the paisley, and the grayish lavender came from the stash my co-worker gave me. The light blue was from my stash, and the paisley and lavender were cut from two $1 thrift store shirts.

    Here's the pattern.

    That is going to be very pretty and love how you are putting the fabrics together to be so complimentary to each other.

    When I pulled all the purple fabric out of the bags I thought "Hmmm this may be too much purple." But as it goes together I actually really like it.

    What a splendid way to “pay it forward.” It will make a lovely quilt for someone. Please post again when you have it finished.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
