    This quilt was originally for my sister's 25th wedding anniversary June 29th. Well, I got it completed and then found out June 17th she had terminal cancer and it was very aggressive. She passed away July 10th and was only able to enjoy her quilt for a couple of weeks.
    So this quilt is now my tribute to her memory. I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as she did.

    The original pattern is from Coffee Time Quilts by Cathy Wierzbicki called "Totally Decaffeinated". I used my EQ6 to tweak it a little into a king size and called it "Wish Upon A Star".

    Very sorry to hear about your sister. How pleased she must have been to receive that beautiful quilt. When you wrap yourself in it I'm sure you can feel her presence and that must be a comfort to you.
