Remember this Quilt?

I finished this quilt back in September 2006, just after I started blogging. I started piecing it by hand on trains in Romania and finished by machine in Finland. Well, The Color Purple has a new home! I started it with a friend in mind, but then she had a boy. (He received this for his first birthday and this on my last visit to England.) Now that little boy has a new sister, Maria Sandra. They will be amazed how quickly this quilt arrives - all I have left to do is the label!

It's really pretty, and what a lot of patience, sewing all those curves.

Thank you for the wonderful lesson on the flying geese pattern. Interestingly my daughter is spending the summer in Sundsvall Sweden coaching and playing softboll. We live in the states in Oregon. I hope you enjoy your trip to the states. Fran
