    Talking MIL's birthday quilt

    I made this "Pretty in Purple" quilt for my MIL's birthday, which is Monday. I actually had it finished early, and was not scrambling around to get the binding finished! It is a Take 5 quilt. It's the first time I set anything on point, or used purple. It is not one of my favorite colors, but she loves it. I sent it out to be quilted. Hope she likes it!

    I like it a lot. Love the colors!
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    I'm not especially fond of purple either, but that is a beautiful quilt! Your MIL will love it.
