A Forgotten Quilt

Since I have been such a slacker in updating my blog, I have missed several important events in my life. The two most important will be posted in future blogs, but right now I want to share another quilt I made with my sister, Melanie, for our sister, Allison. Allison lives in Missouri and, therefore, misses out on all the fun Melanie and I have together, so we decided to work together on this quilt for her birthday. I had already purchased the fabrics for some future quilt and we saw a snowball quilt at our favorite quilt shop, American Quilting, and decided to try that one out. Well, I won't go into the gory details about our tandem quilting fiasco, but just let me say, Allison, you better LOVE this quilt!! It was a lot harder and more time consuming than we ever anticipated and we had a deadline which made it harder. Here is the quilt. We called it "Oh, Well!" after our Mom's favorite saying when things don't go as planned -- a phrase I am learning to use more in my life.

Here is Baby Allison, the proud owner of "Oh, Well!" quilt.
