    I made this quilt for my DS and DDIL last year. DDIL's favorite color is purple, so I wanted to use that but didn't want the quilt to be just her color, so I added the greens, browns and golds. It's kingsize. I quilted it in sections on my sewing machine.

    Wow! That really is gorgeous!!! That purple focus border and the piano key border make that incredible center stand out! King sized, huh? I imagine that took awhile!

    Absolutely gorgeous. Love the color combination and the piano key border just makes it. They'll love it.

    How do you like EQ? I've never used it. Can you scan your material in to see how it would actually look in your pattern?

    I absolutely love the colors. Great idea about adding other than purples so the quilt belongs to both of them :).
    Isn't EQ amazing!
