College Bound

Lizzie was a little infatuated
with this lavender print...

She has a thing for purple.  

So this Geekly Chic fabric was a perfect start
for her college quilt.

And I have a bolt of purple minkee that
I've been hoarding for a couple of years.  
It goes on the back of most everything it can, 
because we love the long minkee - it feels like 

She entered this retro geek quilt 
in the county fair.  
It did pretty awesome.

It started out as a nice little lap quilt
and then when we were getting ready 
to cut the backing, uh,
it was a large twin size?

Kari Ramsay's pattern explains how to easily
and quickly make these triangles.

It's our last day with her.
She leaves tomorrow.

So happy for her and
this next step.

We love you!
And will miss you terribly!
