    My granddaughter loves purple, as do I, so this is the quilt I made for her for her 16th birthday. The pattern is called "Color Falls". I used a permanent marker to make the labels which are on Laurel Bursch fabric labels. One label is for her, the other label gives care directions. What do you think?
