Geri's Quilt

Next in my journal is a quilt I made for my sister on the occasion of her 50th birthday.
...a few years ago.
There, Geri, I did not say what year but if people are keeping track of my journal they know I have been journaling in chronological order and I am almost finished with 2004.
Oops! Did I just say my sister is 56 years old?
oh yeah, back to the quilt...

The photo is not too clear for some reason.
It is called Spice Market and it is a pattern from the book Batiks and Beyond by Laurie J. Shifrin.
Geri's birthday is in November, so the colors of  fall were screaming to me.
She acted really surprised when she opened it but then told me she was secretly wishing I would make her a quilt.
Glad I was able to grant her birthday wish that year.

That's just beautiful. Fall is my favorite time of year, so I naturally love those colrs.
