    Well I told you about my oldest when she got her purple log cabin at Christmas and how shocked and happy she was. At the same time the youngest then 28 has having a fit over her sister's quilt and doing all the oohing and ahhhhh and already letting me know that she wanted a quilt too. Boy was the party on when she opened her Christmas present. You see my girls don't sew. They are in and out of the house all the time and never - and I mean never dreamed of me making a quilt much less 2. The youngest cried then the oldest cried. Nothing to do but let her in my lap too. :D She got the purple fan quilt. This was a good Christmas in 2008.
