This was difficult to give back as my favorite color is burgundy and this quilt just spoke to my color palette. I went through a phase about 15 years ago that every quilt I made was burgundy and emerald green and I had to intentionally break out of it. As I worked on this quilt, I remembered how comforting it is to work on a burgundy quilt.
This is a wonderful gift of love from a mother to her adult son in the military. He helped pick the fabrics and the quilting design. I love the way the cream thread just pops on the back for a look that makes the quilt reversible. I do have to admit, I am glad that I got the opportunity to work on this project AND send it to its new home.
