Purple Papillon & Freedom

Post by Tanya

The Purple Quilt is done.  I haven't thought of name yet or a good name. Swirly Purple Butterfly just doesn't seem right.   Does anyone have  suggestions for a name?  I decided to go with the suggestion Purple Papillon. I pieced the top, and some of the back with leftover blocks, basted it, and Richard quilted it.  I think our joint effort turned out nicely. One more gift for Christmas done, many more to go.  Both Richard and I need to get back to finishing our blocks for the beginner QAL. I am behind at least three now.  I need to take some outside pictures, this doesn't do it justice.

Close up of the butterfly quilted in center of block.

The older two kids start back at school on Wednesday.  It is the first time in 7 years they have been in the same school.  James is starting his senior year and Rebecca her freshman year.  I think I am more excited for them to start than they are.  Jared doesn't start 3rd grade until next Monday. I am looking forward to time with just Julia.  No more "Don't wake Mom" at the top of their lungs.  Working nights can be not so fun when you have a family.

Ha ha...now about "Over the Fence and Into the Pool" - now surely you can guess where I got that name!

Your quilt looks great! I have no name suggestions, but I'm sure you'll think of something wonderful. Richard is really getting brave with those quilting designs!

I love the colour and design, what a great team, and an even better Christmas gift :) I think I would call it Purple Papillon :)

*Love* that butterfly print!! "Purple Papillon" is a cool name option, between the butterflies in the print and quilting. and haha!! Don't you love those screams to not wake you up? ;D

Wow what a great first quilt. I was so pleased to hear that you have taken up quilting Tanya but is there a fight for who gets the machine or is there one each?
