I chose fabrics from a designer I know Paula loves: Kaffe Fassett. These fabrics are happy, vibrant, feel-good type fabrics. I downloaded a free pattern from this site
and spent two weekends stitching. I loved
every second I spent making this quilt because it made me feel closer to
The finished quilt size is 56″ X 56″ – a perfect lap size.
And I was lucky enough to be able to arrange a meet up with her in NYC and give her the quilt in person!
This is a beautiful quilt and a beautiful story... I know Paula is on here and I hope she is doing better now...brought tears to my eyes!
I love this story. There is something very special about sisters. What a beautiful quilt...cheers you up just looking at it!
What a great story. She can wrap herself up in you any time!
Paula is doing very well now (has been cancer free from just about a year - yahoo!)...
Just have to say this is the cutest picture of sisters. You are lucky to have each other and really like each other as evidenced by your smiles. The quilt is just as beautiful.
This quilt is gorgeous! What a wonderful way to show love and support for your sister.
