No, not talking about Prince, although he's been the topic of discussion these days. Strange how people scurry out of the woodwork to capitalize when tragedy strikes...family or otherwise.
Anyway, I have once again (somehow) subjected myself to help out (a cousin-in-law this time) with making her daughter a quilt. I say help, but yes, I am making the entire thing start to finish. The mom wants to surprise her for her graduation this year from Clemson U. with this "tail gating quilt". Just the idea of that kinda scares me. Who knows what condition this thing will be in after the tail gating season is over. But, OK, I am doing it!
After a few hours of sewing what seems like hundreds of blocks of nothing but orange and purple, I'm sick of this thing already. But, I get it, it's a college themed quilt with only these two colors. I don't think I'll have it done for her by graduation though, which by the way, is the first week in May. Why do I get myself in these situations?
Not sewn together yet, but what do you think? It doesn't look like purple, but these are all a grape color.
