The only thing I love more than quilting fabric is quilting stories. Got a good one? Send me yours at email@example.com. We publish a great quilting story every week in our series Stitched Together - Stories for the Quilter’s Soul.

Today’s story has the unique ability to make me laugh and cry. And as the proud owner of two sisters myself, I couldn’t wait to share this with you. I hope you have a sister, a friend, a daughter, or someone special like the woman in this story. Many thanks to Jeanne for sharing.
In 1992 I moved close to my sister. She was into quilting and we took classes together by a famous quilter. I soon loved quilting as much as my sister, Carol Ann, did.
She took me to her retreats where I met many new quilters and became friends with them all. At one retreat in the woods, four of us went a day early to get more sewing in. That first night we were alone in the lodge. All of a sudden we heard a bear growling outside the sewing room window! We all froze. No one moved an inch. We thought the bear was going to come in and attack us. Finally we were able to run upstairs and lock our bedroom doors. It was scary, but fun and exciting too!
Carol Ann and I would go on weekends to different towns and shop at the local quilt shops. She was a fifth grade teacher and would tell me stories. She was a great story teller. Every time we were together we would laugh so hard we'd cry. My sister was the greatest person I’ve known.
I now have a Bernina 830 and a sewing room chock full of fabric. It is my peace. Thanks all to my sister. She taught me everything she knew, which was a lot.
In 2003, Carol Ann was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given one year to live. She quit quilting that day. She died three months later. I was given her quilting things. I found that my sister loved to make blocks, but never finished them. She had over twenty quilts unmade.
I finished one of her quilts and gave it to my daughter. I told her it was made by my sister and me. She cried and loved it.
I miss my sister every day. Thank you Carol for teaching me to quilt. It is now my passion in life.
I know some of the stories people share with us might not be easy to write, but I love them because they remind me to appreciate life, make great memories, and show love. Thank you so much, Jeanne, for your story.
