I wanted to make a quilt for my sister-in-law similar to the one that I had made for my sister - ;))

I only needed 4 fabrics so I found a light and dark yellow/gold batik and a light and dark purple/green colored batik. I also got a dark green batik for the tiny inner border. Hopefully it would go with her family room or office furnishings - ;))

I used a "soft curves" technique by Alex Anderson for quilting the center portion and quilted a grid in the border - ;))

I challenged myself to complete it before Christmas - and I did - barely. I finished the binding and sewing on the label on Saturday, December 22, 2007. We left on Sunday, December 23, 2007 to spend Christmas with her and her family - ;))

QJ - 2007

P.S. - The label says "my favorite sister-in-law" - the joke is that she's my "only" sister-in-law - ;))
