    I absolutely would not be that nice. If you make it will you include the 3 dumpsters? Just kidding!

    I would tell her that she was adopted.

    Because a quilt need not be a direct representation --- think flying geese or log cabins --- why not make a derivative of this picture/poster/whatever it is? Use the same colors, approximate shapes, and a lot of artistic license to create your own art that "reminds" you and sis of this thing.

    She doesn't quilt, I do. Am I this nice a sister? I haven't decided yet if I want to tackle something like this. Assuming I decide to take the plunge, anyone have suggestions?
    Holy yeow! She'd better hope she never bit you or anything.
