Recently, it was my sister’s birthday. She turned 20 years beautiful, and celebrated the event with her beau and his relatives in victoria, giving me the chance to finish her present: a rag quilt
as it was being made
Heathcote | 2010
It was such a fun and easy project, based on the idea of keeping all the raw edges at the front so that they fray and become shaggy and lovely over time. I wanted to make her a quilt because, as we travel in different directions I thought it would be nice if she could take a reminder of me with her wherever she goes. I also wanted to make something pink and pretty since she is so ballerina like (which is also why I named it “Anna’s ballerina Quilt”):
It was so hard to keep this project a secret, but at last it is sitting in her room among all the other beautiful things she collects.
