Free on Friday: Three Sisters Make-Over

Three Sisters in Dots by Laura Wasilowski
Back in the old days, like 2006, I made this quilt called Three Sisters in Dots. It was the era of my "sisters" quilts when sisters were really trees that hung out together. They would chat and gossip and complain about air quality, root systems, and how rapidly their leaves were changing in the fall. In short, they were like sisters.

Having re-discovered this quilt in a pile of forgotten quilts, I decided to give the sisters a make-over. A stitch here, a stitch there and suddenly they are looking pretty perky! Want to make your own sisters quilt? Here's a free pattern for you!

Interesting that you call the trees sisters. I have a row of five (very tall) pine trees behind my house. For years I have called them the five sisters. When I am away from home and there is bad weather, I always look to see if the five sisters are still standing as soon as they are in sight.
Is it an "artist thing" to call trees "sisters"????

The sisters looked lovely before, but even better after some 'bling' in the form of stitches.
