    New Orleans Quilt

    I made this quilt for a friend of mine. She held on to a dream of completing college for over 40 years. She graduated from college December 2013. Her husband is from New Orleans and she's a huge New Orleans Saints fan. One the back I outlined flour de lis in the middle and each corner.

    Nice job. I love the jewel colors....not a pastel fan.
    The fleur de lis was a nice touch.

    Other times I just let HIM sleep.

      That's lovely. The green and purple are super together.

              As a fellow huge New Orleans Saints fan - I am pretty confident that she will LOVE it!! The Mardi Gras colors so vibrant and the fleur-de-lis on the back are an awesome touch. What an excellent way to commemorate a huge accomplishment. Really beautiful!

                          Gorgeous! The Mardi Gras colors are fantastic and I really like the layout. I have a friend who's been teaching for a number of years. She's 51. She decided a couple of years ago to get her masters degree and now she's working on her PhD. Just goes to show we're never too old to learn.
