    Happy 50th Birthday Big Sis Quilt

    I recently finished this quilt for my sister's 50th birthday. This was machine pieced and hand quilted. My first attempt at more than echo quilting. It took me almost 9 months to finish, but the look on her face when she saw it was well worth the time.

    I think Congressmen should wear uniforms,
    you know, like NASCAR drivers, so we could
    identify their corporate sponsors.

    Beautiful! What a treasured gift!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    What a great sissy you are. It's beautiful. She has a wonderful momento from you to cherish for years to come.
