  1. I love every one of them. So much love has gone into each of them. Choosing fabric for the dresses is like dressing up your dolls.

  2. I love your #3 favourite, so spring-like and airy! I do think you may have started something… I know Preeti initiated the giveaway, and such a great idea it is, but for you to go with it and expand it, and to include the world, well my heart swelled. Beautiful flimsy, can’t wait to see it all done, and happy Thanksgiving to you two for tomorrow.

    I love the blocks and the quilt! I think your sister with her hands in a different direction wants to high five the other sisters and that’s why her hands are that way 🙂 Have a great day sweet Roseanne! Thanks for always inspiring us!

    I think all of your sisters are beautiful. I have followed Preeti for awhile as she has made hers and am enchanted with the idea of a Sisterhood quilt! I think it could be displayed at the church where my Sisterhood group meets.

  7. Thank you for explaining the Sisterhood quilt! I’ve read about it, but I honestly must have skimmed the important parts! It all makes sense now.
    I love your one sister block with the different hands!
    What a fantastic quilt! How fun to share blocks with others!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    I unfortunately do pick favorites, even among so many beauties, I would have to go with Sue’s first choice…but they are all fantastic! I can hardly wait to see this quilt done…it’s fabulous!!!! I am working on the Palisades Quilt right now after seeing it finished in red, black and white…cannot justify starting another as I also have an Ornamental Quilt sitting as a finished top, but not a finished quilt…sigh…queen of the unfinished business…but as soon as!! LOL Your International Sisters are going to be so inspiring!

  9. Roseanne I’ve been waiting to see your Sisters block and what you were planning for a layout! Beautiful! I’ve been intrigued with them since I read your and Preeti’s posts about them. I’m thankful to have a few “adoptive sisters” in my world since my sister died in an accident when her van slipped on ice and slid on to a railroad crossing with an incoming train. It was over 20 years ago but I miss her still. I have started making a few Sisters blocks in between other projects to make a quilt for my niece that was in the accident with her mom and each of her sisters. My sister and I had had a difference opinion several months before she passed, but made up and had a two week visit a month before she died. My niece and her two sisters do not speak to each other so I am hoping a little reminder of the importance of sisters and caring, protecting and encouraging each other is so important. Ooops sorry for talking your ear off but these blocks get me teary eyed thinking of my loss and the incredible women who have stepped out in my life to be the sisters they are to me and my family.

    What a glorious collection of fabric ladies! I for one would not be able to pick a favorite. They are all so beautiful and what they represent makes them more so. Well done you two!

  11. Rochelle Summers says:

    They are all so pretty and I couldn’t possibly choose a favorite. Such a wonderful quilt with a beautiful message. You and Sue have done a great job putting together a lovely quilt to keep you wrapped in love and warmth. Happy Sunday. :>)

  12. Sue’s favorite is mine, too, although there were so many great choices! Our little “Sistas” group is making a few. Can’t wait to see this as it becomes another beautiful quilt!

  13. Rosalind Gutierrez says:

    Great block and yes I agree Sisters are vital and thankfully I have one too.

  14. Your sisters are wonderful, Roseanne and Sue! I love them all! It’s so fun to see what fabric has been chosen for their dresses and hats. I’ve made some International Sisters myself – don’t they go together so easily? I ecen have a few little sisters on my design wall right now. Love how your quikt top turned out!

    Roseanne, I love your sisterhood quilt. The first time I saw Preeti’s block I fell in love with it and plan to make it. I love that you have taken up the baton and are developing a tradition. Happy Thanksgiving!

  16. I love the quilt. I am so grateful that my family has been spared this virus so far. I will miss them for the holidays but we will get together soon. Jmikebalou (at) aol (dot) com
