That's my quilt!!!

My sister does some amazing work and I am so thankful for this gift. It has so many memories sewn into it and I love it. It is amazing that so much of you is in it and I look at each of the details and I can see a part of you. Thank you does not seem to suffice. Maybe I'll put my words into an afghan or quilt too.

Here is a picture of the beautiful quilt and equally gorgeous bed frame. My sister puts her life into fabric and that sort of creative stuffs and our dad puts his into wood working.

It was really touching to read to the story behind the quilt, thanks for sharing it with us. This post inspired me to sew my first quilt, so thank you!

So ambitious & amazing!  And thanks so much for the story behind it.  Have you thought about jotting down what the symbols mean & who is represented by what, and attaching it to the back of the quilt?  It takes so little time for an heirloom to lose it's history, and this quilt seems destined to be an heirloom.  On many quilts, makers put their names, date, and who/ what occasion they made the quilt for on the back side of the quilt, either in ink or embroidery.  I encourage you to think about something to make for your sis to patch on there.  It was lovely to read about the symbolism of the images & I'm sure a future family member might like to read them too.
