Happy 60th, Sue!
Sue's birthday is still a few days away, but she got her package and opened it, so I can share what I made for her. My idea is to make a 60th birthday lap quilt for each of my sisters and my brother. As I stitched this one, I thought of lots of family memories and did a lot of smiling. Maybe I chose the peachy color because of my own memories of the summer of peaches. Sue swears we did not eat that many, but I remember eating them for every meal. The flannel made me think about the fuzz on peaches. Whatever the reason I chose the fabric colors, the whole quilt reminded me of Sue.
