    Joy Lynn, my almost sister

    My Uncle and Aunt had lost 2 babies when I came along. They asked to adopt me but my parents said no. Joy did not come along til I was 8 years old. Yes, I was spoiled by 2 families. But if I had been adopted, Joy would be my sister. When she saw some of the pictures of quilts I had made, she said she wanted one too, but in a kidding kinda way. She does not know she will be getting this at the family reunion in a couple of weeks. Her favorite colors were blank, purple and green. This is my first Irish Chain and I must be doing it wrong because it was very easy????? It is all hand quilted. I hope she, and you, like it!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I really like how you took an old fashioned block on the front and paired it with free form patches on the back.
    Great job.!

    Those colors are fabulous. Nice job on the front and the back. I loved pieced backs, adds so much interest. Thanks for sharing.

    That is a beautiful quilt - front and back. What a lot of hand quilting - you did a great job and she will love it for sure!

    Love the colors... Also like the way you did the back. I am sure she will be surprised and tickled to death.
