Christmas day was fast approaching, and still I hadn’t found anything for my sister. I was on the lookout for something just right in a thrift store, or second hand shop, or even in my house somewhere (We try not to buy NEW things for eachother..that just wouldn’t do..) But nothing had jumped out at me, and time was running out. She too had made a pile last summer from fabrics she liked, letting me know the kind of quilt she’d prefer. But I couldn’t possibly have time for that. Not this year. Or did I? I had started one of my own with larger squares. The work goes fast when the squares are big.
