Never say Never Quilting

My sister, Mary's very first quilt 1998. Bias triangle for the star.

After she finished piecing the star and the black field around it she gave up, packed it away, SWEARING NEVER TO QUILT AGAIN.

Many years latter on one of my trips to visit her in Massachusetts, she dug out the quilt she had started years before, and gave it to me. I finished the boarders, designing the outer boarder to enlarge for a double bead.

Ginger Cook, of Staford VA. long arm quilted. The quilt was finished in 2009, and given back to my sister Mary for her Christmas present.

Thanks for reading.

My sister Mary just started a Paula Nadelstern Kaleidoscope quilt.

I hope she gets the Kaleidoscope done before she gives up and SWEARS NEVER TO QUILT AGAIN, and hands it off to me.

UPDATE from the Editor: Ruthellen's sister DID finish her Kaleidoscope quilt and recently shared it with us. Click here to see it! This is such a wonderful story!

Thank you for sharing it with us!

I love what you did with the border. I sure wish MY sister would finish my quilts for me! She's so lucky!
