    Quilt for my sister

    We call rhis the Purple Ripper Quilt, because we ripped out more seams on this quilt than all the other quilts together. But my sister loves purple so we kept on until it was finished and she loved it. It was a week or so late for her birthday but she thought it was worth the wait.

    That is really pretty. I love the layout of the blocks making the secondary pattern.

    Love the way this was pieced with the light and dark with the little glimps of focus in the centers. Cool purple.

    the pattern and your fabrics are perfect. Purple seems to be popular right now.

    That is very effective. Like the way you have quilted it as well - not overdone and stiff.
