The story of two sisters and two quilts
This is the story of two sisters one born in 1954 and one born in 1960 and two quilts, one made in 1980 and one made in 2001.
When I was six years old, my baby sister, Denise was born. I have another sister, Bev who is 15 months (to the day) older than me and I will talk about her quilt in another post. Denise went off to school in 1979 and I made her a quilt to take to college, a multicolored sampler quilt. When she married my brother-in-law, champion golfer, fisherman, and general all around nice, funny as hell guy, Martin, I made them a wedding quilt. As you can see from the two pictures at the top of this post, alot of learning (on my part) occurred between the two quilts, one finished in 1980 and the other in 2001.
Here are some more photos of the details. Enjoy.
