Originally, I had decided that I should start making my quilts reversible. I thought this might make a slight dent in the World's Largest Fabric Stash, so I was going to use this Yellow Brick Road quilt as the back of my Blue and Purple Scrap Wave. When I discussed this with my machine quilter, she didn't jump up and down for joy at my ingenuity since she was concerned with all of the seams that would be on both sides of the quilt. Then I decided to enlarge my Blue and Purple Scrap Wave and my YBR top was no longer big enough (the machine quilter wants at least 8-10 inches of extra fabric), so I would have had to make the YBR larger (and we know most of that would have ended up on the cutting room floor after quilting).
Anyway, I was long overdue to give Leah a quilt and what teenage girl doesn't like purple? So I posted a photo of it on her Facebook page for her approval and she gave me a big thumbs up. I had two extra rows of blocks left over which I believe ended up on the back of the Blue and Purple Scrap Wave (still with Kate, so I'm not certain, they could also be buried in my Quilt Studio somewhere).
Here are a few more photos of Leah's quilt.
|It's supposed to be a twin size quilt, but it fits the top of my queen size bed.|

|I really like the purple striped binding. This fabric is not in the quilt top but blends perfectly. The floral you see at left is the quilt underneath (currently on my bed). The back of Leah's quilt is a plain purple.|
