My First Finish of 2011

10 years ago, my older sister said to me "When am I going to get a quilt?"   I said one of these days, she then replied "Probably never!"  Feeling rather offended by her tone of voice, I said "by your 50th birthday."  

That was November 13, 2010.     For her birthday, my younger sister and I rented a hotel room,  and took her out to dinner.  We laughed until we cried.   The next day,  we had a great day riding around our old neighborhoods and saying, "Remember this?"   It was a great day.   I didn't have the quilt finished, but the top was done.   I gave it to her and then took it back to get the quilting done. 

Well it is done, and just a few months after her 50th.   This quilt goes on record as my first finish for 2011.
