A Card for Grandma

This bright card is for my Grandma, who recently moved into a nursing home.  Since I live in a different state, I can't be there to visit her as often as I'd like.  But I can send her a card every week.  She loves purple, and has made more quilts in her life than I could even count.  I loved going to her house when she was tying off a quilt.  The frame would take up the entire living room and made a pretty cool fort for a little kid.  She also made a quilt for each of her grandchildren as wedding presents.  My green quilt is one of my treasured possessions.  Quilts and Grandma just kind of go together, so I wanted to add a quilted element.  I'm hoping this will brighten her day and make her happy.
