I mailed a second package to Texas! This quilt went to my sister. It’s going to look much better on her bed with the oak headboard!
This is a quilt that was in process for a very long time. I made the blocks and she put it together. Here’s that story. That was September, 2008. Sometime after that, my sister and I figured out a pieced border for this huge quilt.
She pieced the border. Take a look at the points. They’re perfect. She quilts about twice in five years. Pretty amazing, huh?
The fabric is Kashmir by Moda. I started out with a Fig Tree Quilts pattern, but quickly changed some things.
Here’s the quilting.
I’ve decided that the next time we get together (hopefully spring break!) that I need a good photo of the two of us. I could have blackmailed her big time, because I have pictures of us fishing in Alaska, but that would have been mean.
I have a picture on the bulletin board in my sewing room. It says,
“I smile because you’re my sister.
I laugh because there’s nothing you can do about it.”
I love you, sis of mine!!!
