This quilt came together over a few years and I finished it last fall (2008). Before I even really started quilting I was collecting purple fabrics: charm squares from ebay, hand-me downs from my sister, fat quarters from every fabric store I went into etc... Once I had made my first quilt in 2005 I slowly started cutting the fabrics into 2" squares. Then it sat in a bucket for a long, LONG time. In January 2008 I took it out again, got all the squares cut and started chain piecing...lots of it.
I got the top all pieced before we made a big move,
and after a few months break and moving across the country it got pulled out again and I finally finished it! I love it still!
I made it for our oldest daughter and hope she'll love it for many years too.
