Dear (Grand) Daughter was made for my grand daughter, Penny Lane, who loves purple, dancing, singing, coloring and Disney princesses, but then what 7 year old doesn't :) No princesses made it into the quilt, but some dancing, singing, coloring and lots of purple. 'Dance' was sewn together incorrectly and I didn't notice until after I quilted it, so it stayed incorrect. Once in the quilt it doesn't really matter. Really... it doesn't... ;) I struggled with what words to use, wanting it to be more personal to Penny. I felt most words/phrases in the patterns were a bit too old.
It finished at 88" x 60". I quilted each Chapter (without backing) as I finished it, put the Chapters together and used two small 'ready made' fleece throws for the back. Not the best put together quilt, but I'm happy with it :)
