Carolyn's Quilt...


We went hiking in the snow for quilt photos...Here is the quilt I made for My new Friend Carolyn...

I've never made quilts with purple.  Don gave me a stack of purple pieces for my birthday back in March.  When I met Carolyn -- a couple of months ago -- I new the fabric was meant for her.  Carolyn is dating Eric...

She's a special girl... 

I have all my kids home and we're celebrating Christmas with them.  It's not a date on a calendar, It's a date in your heart.

For years we celebrated Christmas on the second Thursday in December - those were some of my favorite Christmases.

I like how you used the purple. I'm not a purple-y person, either, so it's good to see what it's supposed to used for! LOL It turned out lovely!

It's a beautiful quilt, Melanie! I really love the purple in it !!

I am so glad your folks are all home and it really doesn't matter the day on the calendar. You said it so well.

Merry Christmas!

I have always liked that when you share a photo of your handwork taken in the outdoor settings in so enjoy.

beautiful quilt. And what a snow. That is a white Christmas. I've been to upper Michigan 4 years ago. It was in September, and it started snowing. In our country it usually snows in Januari/februari.
