Imagine you had a sister, and you liked to talk to your sister about quilts, because you really love quilts, and she makes quilts, and you’re pretty sure that as much as you love quilts you’re lacking whatever gene it is that would enable you to make one yourself, but you love to look at them and dream about them and talk about them and she understands.

Ok, so you’ve got this sister, and you email her a picture of a quilt you like, and she emails back saying that it’d be a great quilt for a beginner, so simple!

Flash forward. You’ve pieced the top. Yay! Your sister comes over so you can lay the quilt out together. She eats her words.


Then she goes home. And you’re slightly terrified but simultaneously thrilled with the potential prettiness.

(As I look at the picture I immediately see some squares that can’t stay where they are. That’s ok. I’m going to make a couple of squares out of the fabric we chose for the borders, binding, and back,


so I’ll be swapping out a few.)
