Lilac dreams for Clarissa

After many years of trying, when a work colleague and friend finally announced her pregnancy I wanted to put together something really special.  To say purple is her favourite colour is a gross understatement.

I had a gorgeous fat eight pack of vintage 30s from The Quilters Store which I bulked out with some other lavenders in Mum's collection including backing fabric from one of my late grandmother's frocks! Well, it is meant to be an heirloom quilt ;)

I quilted in basket weave using scalloping. A bout of insomnia assisted in getting the quilt finished. Usually it's the other way around!!
