Herringbone Quilt for my cousin Andi

A couple of years ago I saw my cousin Andi. I had not seen in her several years and we were passing through her home town area in Illinois, so it was  perfect time to see her. We met for dinner with her husband and daughter and in the course of the conversation we discussed my quilting. I asked her about quilts our grandmother had made and discovered she did not nave one, I am sad to say.

After finding out her favorite color was purple I put that piece of information in the back of my mind and down the road a ways I found a quilt pattern and fabric that just seemed to say Andi to me.

Fast forward today. I mailed out the quilt to her earlier this month and she messaged me when it arrived and said she loved it. Today she posted a picture of her with the quilt for me. I love seeing pictures of my my quilts with the recipients. I makes me feel good to see them with their new owners.
