    My first quilt

    Made this for my sister from shirts, slacks and sheets. First time I have sewn anything in years. We lost a younger sister a year ago from Breast Cancer.

    A very nice tribute to your sister.

    I still thank my mom for every quilt I make. I was instrumental in my sewing when I was a kid, 50 years ago.
    welcome to the QB. you will find many sisters and brothers here.

    Very soft colors and so pretty. Congratulations on making your first quilt!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    You did a beautiful job. I have an older sister, a breast cancer survivor going on her 6th year. I am saying prayers for you and your family!

    Quilting is (or can be) calming and cathartic. Maybe this will launch you into a new hobby. It is very pretty and I am sorry that you lost your sister.
