    Well, it is beautiful and one day all the young ladies will be old ones, too! I read once that old age is a privilege denied many people and so I am reveling in my "older" status.

    It is always amazing to me how you can come up with such neat ways to make each quilt unique with your quilting. It is wonderful!

    I think you did an excellent job of matching the quilting to the quilt. You definitely have an eye for picking the right pattern to fit the quilt.

    The graduate evidently has a LOT to learn about us "old ladies". Rule #1 is to not call us old ladies!!!!!!!!!!! Rule #2 is to recognize that the so called "old ladies" must be quite spiffy, creative, savy with math, very knowledgeable about the color wheel, still have good eye hand coordination, and very tolerant of insulting youth. Rule #3 Studying Quilting History will be like studying a history of women and their endurance as well as their abilities to care for their families under very difficult circumstances, and in the earlier days, all of this was done without such things as electricity, indoor plumbing, heating/air conditioning, computers, cell phones, etc. etc etc. Ooooooooooh!!!! The youth of today just haven't put down their cell phones, etc. long enough to think how the "old ladies" of the past paved the way for them to become "all they can be"!!!!!!!

    I have a family of purple lovers. I do like this one as well. It's definitely bold and modern.

    Barbara, I certainly like what you wrote and wanted to say you hit the nail right on the head. I admire the women of generations past and hopefully the young women of today will do the same for us. :-)

    I used the same pattern for my grand daughter. I really like the way it goes together. For her I made a "girlie" quilt but think I'll try it again with more boyish colors for the grandsons.

    I really like this. I love the colors, i'm a purple lover as well, and I love modern feel to it with the geometric and simple lines (I think that may be the definition of "not old lady quilt") and I am absolutely in love with how you quilted it. It came out very stunning on the back that way!

    Favorite Color - Purple

    Yes, purple is my favorite color. I have been collecting purple fabric and scraps for about two years. ONE day, I will make a quilt..............Just need more purple fabric before I begin..... I know I will be using 4-1/2" squares............

    Happy Quilting
