March 3 is the day that should have been my beloved big sister Kerry's 64th birthday. Sadly, cancer took her early aged 62.
Today I have been thinking about something we shared as sisters for many decades and that was quilt making. Kerry came to visit me in 1981 shortly after I had finished taking a session of beginners quilting lessons and she was eager to give this new craft a try also. Thus began an interest that was to keep us together for the rest of her life although in all that time we were always living in different countries (she stayed in New Zealand but I have bopped around from place to place).
Looking at all these photos it shouldn't be too difficult for you to figure out what Kerry's favorite fabric color was to work with.
Yes, we had a lot of fun. It's been good to remember Kerry today.
Let her legacy be a reminder to all to label your quilts so your sister is not the only one who knows (or does not) all the details about the quilt treasure.
