Birthday Quilt in "Royal Colors"

Pin It

My friend "L" is having a birthday, so...

I asked her husband what was her favorite color.
He suddenly had that "deer in the headlight" look. He absently looked off, and then he said, oh, she likes them all.
So, I pressed him a little - does she like pastels, or strong colors, is she partial to one if you think about it? "Hmm", he said as he glanced over to her, "Oh, she likes purple, yeah, purple". When I looked across the room where his wife was visiting, I couldn't help but notice that she was wearing a purple top, so- Maybe she will like this lap quilt I am making for her, and maybe not.
I get the feeling that if she had worn red that night, that would have been her favorite color.

It made me wonder what would my husband say if someone asked him about my favorite color.

She suffers from MS, but you never, ever hear her complain about being chilly, or how her bones ache. I hope this little quilt will be just comfy enough to ward off the floor chills or she can take it with her in the car for a quick throw over her legs type of thing. Or, perhaps she will wrap her favorite little dog in it so they can snuggle together, whatever makes her happy.


  1. Looks good. I have three quilts "in the makings" that need to get finished but I'd don't know when that will happen with my new sign venture. Maybe this winter I'll get into the sewing mood.

  2. Hi Helen, thanks for stopping by.

    There is another way, however it will watermark all of your photos from web albums. I don't want all of my photos watermarked.
