Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

This is not an April Fool's joke.....

The wedding quilt "top" is DONE!!!

I said I wouldn't post anymore pictures of it until it was done and my goal was to have it done by the end of March, so I am thinking April 1st isn't too bad.

Anyways, yesterday there was a pile of blocks.


Doesn't look like much, does it?  There are 25 blocks but each of them will finish out at 20".

Then I sewed the rows and got them all pressed.


With no one here to hold it up for me, this is the best that I can do to show you the quilt.  It measures 100" square. 





Now I am off to look for a backing. 

If I can get this quilted and back sometime in May, I should be able to get the binding on (which is made) and have it stitched down BEFORE the reception, not AT it.   

I will post pictures of the totally completed quilt hopefully before June.  

Yeah....I can finally start  something new.

  2. How gorgeous is that! What a lucky couple!

    Can't help a little snigger at the picture of you stitching the binding on at the reception - sorry, I realise that would be stressful and my sniggering is completely unacceptable (tee hee)!
