Finally, after snapping away for quite a while (with poor hubby hanging onto the quilt behind the fence! His arms were getting tired I'm sure) we got some great shots.
The first time I saw the Sherbet Pips fabric I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to make a quilt for my sister, Diane. The little girls swinging on the swings, scooting on scooters, playing & having fun, so reminded me of her when we were little girls. She was always on an adventure, whether it involved swinging higher than anyone else or hanging upside down on the monkey bars. I don't think I appreciated it at the time, but Diane has always been the brave one of the two of us.
Me? I was the one hiding up in the branches of the crab apple tree, reading a book. I didn't mind reading about other people's adventures, but I didn't really create any of my own.
So I made this for my sis. I hope she likes it! Even now, all these years later, she's on one adventure after another. And I'm so proud of her.
Here's the scrappy back of her quilt.... with a scrappy binding too. Now that was fun to do! But then I love doing bindings. I know not everyone does!
