    Some Purple Quilts For My Sister

    In the beginning of the year, there was a status update floating around facebook that read:

    Pay it forward 2012. I will make something handmade for the first 3 people that comment. They must in return post this on their status and make something for the first 3 people that comment. The rules are it must be handmade from you and delivered before the end of 2012.

    I signed up on two of DH's aunt's posts, so I had to post this twice, making 6 projects. However, on the second posting, my younger sister was the only one who signed up. Since this is also the year that she's graduating from high school, I decided to make 3 projects and just give them all to her. These are her gifts. Thanks for looking!

    The first one is an "Aurora Borealis" Bargello quilt. The Second is a "Spiderwebs & Mini Star" quilt, made from the scraps that were left over from the third quilt: a "Day & Night" quilt...if you couldn't tell, she really likes purple and gray combos, lol.

    All are beautiful if I HAD to pick a fave I'd have to choose the Bargello, but they are all just beautiful. I love purple too!
