    This is a project that involved me and my three sisters.
    The project started after my oldest sister embroidered fan blocks to make you a quilt. I helped her put it together and hand quilted for her. Sometime later, my younger sister embroidered her a fan quilt. I didn't had quilt it, but someone to custom machine quilt it for her.
    It was at this point one of the sisters decided that we all should have a fan quilt. so one of us bought blocks and we all worked on then and got one made for my sister just older than me.
    Then it was time for a quilt for me, same thing one bought the blocks, and the other three of use embroidered them. I was to set it together..........about ten year later, yesterday I finally got my fan quilt put together ready to be quilted.

    Awesome quilt! I wish my sisters were into quilting as much as your sisters. These quilts you girls have made are great memories for your entire family :-) :-) (Don't forget to label them)

    What a treasure. My sisters and I put a memory quilt together for our parents' 50 anniversary. Great time and memories for us as well.

    Thank you all. I am sure glad to be getting this near the completion point. Sisters are always asking when I am going to finish it.

    The entire quilt is beautiful but I especially like the narrow multicolored border, what a neat way to use that fabric.

    Wonderful keepsake quilt with each of you doing a bit of the work. The colors are so complimentary to the embroidery, or vise-verse.
