    Quilt for My Daughter's Dorm room

    Chose her favorite colors, black and purple, to create this lap quilt. Took inspiration from a fabric co. ad, and translated to fit her personality. Stitched heavily around each motif in the paisley sections. A labor of love.

    She better put a lock on this. It is beautiful. Maybe she can take orders for you and you can decorate the whole floor with modern classy quilts. What a good mom you are!
