I have one sister and two brothers. When my baby sister was married some 22+ years ago I made her a hand pieced and hand quilted quilt. In pinks and blues. Now my friends know I'm not a pink person but I did it for her. She told me this last week that she is retiring the quilt. It has been used well and continuously. Pretty good life span. 2 kids, 2 dogs, 1 husband. She cleaned it and packed it away and maybe someday we will use part of it for a grandbaby quilt.
