I finished the Violet Gardens Prayer Quilt and decided to take it outside and take a photo of it since I am alone today. I think it looks really nice up against my purple house and sitting in the chair.
I love the colors I used in this and the added bit of pink really made it stand out. The binding is a beautiful white eyelet fabric with small purple flowers just giving it that awesome finishing touch.
I did a scrappy back wanting to use as many colors as I had on the front to complete the look. It also has a combination of hand quilting and machine quilting in a variety of patterns.
This is actually a prayer quilt, so when you are sitting up alone reading your bible, or on your knees praying, you can wrap it around you to keep from getting a chill. As many of you know, all of my quilts are prayed over, for whoever receives them to be blessed.
Later today, I will being working on my Pockets of Violets quilt which will be a bit smaller and have pockets on it for things such as a pen, pad of paper, prayer cards, etc. I won't be able to finish it, but working on it makes me happy!
