Sisters Together

While we were in Arizona, my sister and her husband came down for a bit. That's my sister and her husband looking down from upstairs at our place in Arizona.

 While she was there I offered to make her a quilt. I had planed on giving her one for Christmas, but then thought that she might like to pick out her own fabric and pattern. She loved the rich jewel colours in the batiks, so that is what we went with.

After going through lots of pictures, she picked out some that she liked, and we came up with a plan. It really was fun working with her. I did most of the sewing, and she did the pressing. It sure goes faster with two people!!

So, we got the top finished...

And I made up the backing.  Now I just have to put it together and quilt it!! I made a little label too. ...a reminder that is was a fun time together..

I should be able to get it done before Christmas !!

....time to link up to TN&TN...

  1. such great memories and beautiful quilt

  2. That's awesome! I'm sure she'll appreciate it more knowing how much work went into it. And you're right, help is awesome. I'm still taking applications for a presser minion myself.

  3. I love this quilt and the label certainly captures the meaning of the - what a great project to share together.

  4. It's nice to do a project with your sister, I'm sure it will bring happy memories whenever she uses it,

  5. What a gift... not only to get the quilt but to actually having played a part in its creation! Your sister will love wrapping herself in it and will be reminded of the fun time you had together!
