My surrogate granddaughter is in college this fall. (How did she get so old so quickly?) Her favorite color is purple with cool blues and greens. I love my Pointedly Sew pattern, but it was designed different colors in mind. It occurred to me that it would adapt to batiks very well. And here it is! Purple is a color she might outgrow in the four years of college, but the batiks are sophisticated enough to last a lifetime, though I doubt that the quilt itself will last through four years of college. I sewed it strong and quilted it heavily to give it a fighting chance! I hope that you have someone who will love this quilt as well, college bound or not! Please note the "trim" on the back. With all the leftover triangles from trimming the quilt patches, I created a trim stripe for the top of the back. When she wraps it around her, the "collar" is decorated and when she turns it back on her bed, there is decoration for that as well. Enjoy!!
