    I found out that my niece is getting married the day after I bought the fabric to make my first quilt. I decided it will make a great wedding gift. That prompted me to make a bag to put it in. I hope she likes purple.

    the quilt ended up being 70in. by 87 in.

    Such a nice wedding gift. BE SURE and put a label on it! (BTW - that was the pattern of my first quilt)

    If someone gave that to me I'd be so thankful, it wouldn't matter if I liked purple or not. It is beautiful and the bag is such a nice touch. She is very lucky.

    Beautiful quilt! A huge undertaking for a first quilt. It's going to be a wonderful gift for the bride & groom.

    Thanks for all of the wonderful comments. I guess I am going to have to find out how to put a label on a quilt.
