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.
