I actually made this exact quilt for my niece when she graduated from high school. Back then my younger boy was still in elementary school, and he was crazy over the color purple. He loved this quilt and was heartbroken when I shipped it off to my niece, so I said I'd make another one for him. Poor kid, he's all grown up now and still waiting, but he still loves this quilt.
After I worked on this quilt for a half hour or so, I remembered why it became a ufo. Each of those purple medallions is constructed from four fussy cut pieces; so there is lots of matching and pinning that has to be done, which is very time consuming.
I had all the blocks done before today, so this evening I sewed all the rows together. The center is now complete and ready for the borders. The borders will look like those pieces on the side in the photo, but I have no idea what I'll do for that red violet in the middle. It's perfect for the quilt, but I don't have enough of it to border all the way around. That could prove to be enough of an obstacle that it will wind up back in the ufo pile.
