Ready For Quilting

The Very Berry Lemonade quilt top now has all it's borders and is ready to be quilted. This has been a fun quilt to work on. Purple and yellow are colors that I rarely work with and it never would have occurred to me to put them together, but the combination has really made a great summer quilt. Now it's off to Anya, who has graciously offered to do the quilting! Once it is finished, this quilt will be donated to the local children's home for them to raffle off as a fund raiser...hopefully it will make them a lot of money!

That is so lovely of you Susan and a great money raiser. Like you I don't automatically think of yellow with purple but it really does work. I love purple. :-)

Purple and yellow are perfect together. My oldest daughter used lavender and yellow in her wedding. I have green, purple and yellow throughout my house. I love this quilt. I'm sure the quilt will make lots of money.

Oh how gorgeous, I love it! I am sure Anya will do a beautiful job with her quilting too! I am anxious to see the finished project! I KNOW it will raise lots of $$, it is so bright and for a very good cause!
