I made this quilt about a year or so ago for my sweet sister, Alice.
She and I are best buds too; we both miss our dear sister, Paula. Alice is the oldest and had lots of responsibilities while we were growing up. I helped with the babies and she did house work --I am the number 2 child in the birth order. Alice is always ready to go and do, she's a sweetie, and I love her dearly. We go to Bible Study together on Tuesdays and just love it-- it really gets deep and I like that. There are many, many riches in God's Word. We've studied things that we have heard all our lives and we are continually astonished with more truths--amazing.
I made this quilt for her Birthday, and I named it "Georgia Pines"; they used to live there near her daughter. Their beautiful home had a Grove of Pines in their huge front yard. They were lined up in rows, and I loved to look at the trunks as you drove up their drive. It was quite impressive.
I took this picture in my home before I gave it to her for her birthday about a year ago.
This one was taken in our back yard.
Alice is getting ready to have another red headed grandbaby, maybe?.. Well, her daughter and son-in-law's kids all have red hair so far --this will be number 4 and we will see. I am getting ready to make her a baby quilt and I'm picking out colors that will look good with red hair, just in case. So exciting!! I love babies.
