    This is a quilt I made for my sister who lives in Texas. For the past 8 weeks she has been in the hospital. She is suppose to have her gall bladder removed & also a cyst on pancreas as well. Need to say she is still waiting for the doctors to set a date. They want to wait for the cyst to "crystalize" (the word they used) so that they can make sure that they get all of the cyst. Made this for her, as she sends me on occasion Maxine cards, so I thought I would return the favor with a "Maxine" quilt.

    I love Maxine. I got a wall hanging of her from my SIL. Where did you find these pictures of her? Are they all fussy cut from fabric -?

    My mom is crazy about Maxine, and when this fabric line came out I wracked my brain trying to think of a way to use it! Your design is awesome! I'm bookmarking this one!
