Another Mom Story

See the backing of this quilt? In the picture it looks blue but it is actually purple. My mother asked me...."Now why did you put a BLUE backing on that quilt?" I said "Actually Mother, it's purple!" She didn't seem any more excited with that answer. We didn't go into discussion about it but I think she feels the backing should MATCH the front. I was having so much fun with these quilts why do something like match the back to the front??? I like the surprise element of it all. And I am hearing great stories about this quilt and the one her brother received as well. These quilts are loved and I didn't get a citation from the quilt police.

Mission accomplished!!
