for Annie

this is a post for my oldest little sister. i'm making both of my sisters a quilt (hopefully to be be completed by christmas!) so this one is for Annie. i won't show her the final product til it's done, but i gave Bobbie a peek at hers, so it's only fair that i give Annie a teaser too:

i painstakingly cut out all the little squares/rectangles and laid them out on my living room floor. i made sure there weren't any major clashing fabrics laying next to each other, so i was arranging and rearranging like a mad lady. eventually, i got all the square sections in harmony and bagged & numbered them in clear sleeves so they wouldn't get all jumbled up again...

and now i'm working on getting all the squares made up. it's a lot of fun, and not too hard. what can be hard about straight lines, right? (actually, a lot. but we won't go into that now...) so without revealing the whole pattern idea, here's a little glimpse into what's in store. do you like it so far Ambie?
i hope that whenever you eventually get this finished quilt, that you will always remember how much i love you!
