My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

A Quilt for my Sister

Several months ago my sister moved into her first apartment. I made this quilt for her as a housewarming gift.







She loves music and cats about as much as I do!



Recognize the little pawprint binding??






The borders are quilted from the front...but easier to photograph from the back, so the images are mirrored in these pictures.



Do you recognize what they all are??















I had a lot of fun making this quilt for my "younger" sister (she doesn't like me to call her my kid sister anymore....even though she always will be!)


I even threatened to keep it for myself! But hey, a sister's a sister, right?

Musical markings! Very clever!

I'm sure your "younger" sister loves the quilt - especially considering that the most important binding you applied was love.

Bet she loves it! Did she have any idea you were making it for her?
