Tomorrow I need to safety pin my baby sister's Christmas quilt. It's a Pineapple Blossom quilt from Quiltville.
As you probably can guess, purple is her favorite colors. I had lots of 2" purple strips leftover from doing a green and purple Star Log Cabin last year. I think those two colors are my favorite combinations. I already have a purple border on, and will take more pictures before I start to pin the layers.
Sarah is 4 years younger than I am. I spent the first 11 years of her life disliking her. Then when I was 15, things seem to do a 180 and we were just about best friends and have been since. We stay up late giggling, talking just about everything; siblings, hair, weight, sex, animals, college, sign language (she's getting her certification to become a Deaf Interpreter), and just about every other thing you can think of. I know her moods pretty well too, and sometimes I'm just best off ignoring her and letting her be.
One thing she kept thanking me for after I married was my habit of asking her the fastest way to get from one point to another. In the Bay Area, California there are MANY ways to get around, and sometimes I just couldn't decided which method I should take. So I would ask Sarah and she'd give me her opinion. Turns out my little habit caused her to really think about where she's going, what streets are where. She's able to navigate around pretty comfortably and she's been very grateful for that. :)
So for Sarah, I make a Christmas present of a lap quilt. It should finish at 54 x 72 - a good lap size. I just have to say Sarah, I'm sorry that it's probably not going to get to you in time. I didn't plan the mailing thing very well, especially since this is my first Christmas without you! I hope you enjoy it when you do get it. :)
