    Positively Purple

    I made this for the friend of a friend who is about to start chemo and radiation treatment. I was told the woman loves purple, and I do, too, so I jumped right in and use a bunch of purples around the most darling little print with purple-flowered wreaths.

    Finished, the quilt makes me think of purple Kool-Aid, it's that purple. I hope she likes it!

    I'm sure this "kool-aid" quilt will be quite comforting. Sweet quilt and even sweeter intentions ;-)

    She will love it - for the beauty of it and the thoughtfulness that went into it.

    It's so pretty and looks perfect for her to snuggle under! Sweet.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
