So many projects

so many projects and so many mix review. for the month of december i have two or three projects due. i am in a xmas stocking gift swap and i am having a hard time figuring out what to give to 18 quilting friends. when i really don't have any money. so i am buying gifts and making gifts. the next
project is a fabric altered page swap. i am making two set of 14 page swap. the pages that i am making are coming out really nice. i have seen a few of the other pages that some of my friends have made and the swap should turn up some really nice pages. the last project is a purple challenge quilt that is being challenge by the quild that i am in. this project is where the mix reviews come in. i used purple scraps that i had, ribbon, and beads to make this quilt. i have some friends and family who don't like it because they don't understand it. they say that this is not my style. my granddaughter is one the people who love it. and want to put it in her room. i call it purple rain. for my personal opinion, i love it and enjoyed making it. because this is a abstract piece and this is something that i don't do, people ask who made it. right now i don't care if anyone likes it or not. my granddaughter likes it and she has never asked for a quilt from me. so this will be her xmas present, plus a camera from me. here is a picture of the uncompleted quilt. i still have to finish the binding and finish adding
beads. this is not a good picture, you can not see the quilting in this picture and that is what make this quilt so different. the quilting is beautiful. that is what makes this quilt.

It sounds like you can't get into too much trouble with all the projects you plan to do!! When people don't get the quilts I have made, my 27 yr old daughter says "Mom they just don't understand your vision!!" So that thought runs thru my head when people don't get it!! Try it with your purple quilt!! Take care, Laurie
