Guess What!


It's Finished!!
Pickle Dish
67 x 67


A Wedding Quilt
For the Hope Chest of my Granddaughter, Kayla, age 10


Hand Quilted 


 I enjoyed every minute of making this. It's an old friend. 


I hope I'm around when my granddaughter gets married and receives this quilt. But, if not, I'll be there in spirit. 


This is my second wedding quilt for one of the grandchildren. The first was a Double Wedding Ring for Isabelle.  Now I need to work on my Jack's Chain quilt - a wedding quilt for my grandson, Jacob.

And, finally, linking up to Julie's January Binding Blitz.

Words cannot describe how much I love this quilt. The colors. The hand stitching. The love behind it. What a truly beautiful piece of art. For me, this is what quilting is all about. Congratulations on a gorgeous finish!

Wow, this turned out beautifully. The quilt seems so happy and full of JOY - perfect as a wedding gift! I also love your finished wonky log cabin. I decided to switch my main RSC project from the star pattern to a scrappy log cabin, and I am much happier.

It's a beauty. Outstanding! Congrats to your granddaughter on her upcoming nuptials although I think 10 is a bit young. :)

Julie said...

Beautiful quilt! I love your color choices, and your grand daughter will too, but probably more because you made it. Such a kind thought!
