"Catchy Title Goes Here"

I made this quilt for my sister Crystal. I just love her to pieces. We are probably the two most different people in the world, we have NOTHING, I mean NOTHING in common.
She has Red hair, I have blonde...

She has Blue eyes, I have green...

We are both kinda short....Hey! there's one thing!

Anyhow, I made this quilt for her to thank her for helping us paint parts of our house. It was nice to have her around and just have someone there to talk to me while I painted.

I'm so proud of her and the changes she has made in her life in the last couple of years. I only want the best for her and it makes me so happy to see her happy. She's got a GrEAT job, a new car, and she's living on her own. GOOD JOB SISTAH!!

I used the pattern from the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along. This pattern was really quick, however I can't say that I'm a huge fan. The fabrics looked great on their own, but this pattern didn't really feature the fabrics like I wanted.

Here is the back. I used a bright pink batik. I really need a new camera. This fabric was gorgeous and the picture does not do justice.

A little more of the back below.

Crystal and I went shopping for the fabric together. I helped her pick it out. I hope she loves how it came together! :)

This quilt was huge. It's queen size, this is BY FAR the biggest quilt I have ever made.
