The Wedding Quilt
Isabelle (a.k.a. Izzy or Belle or Bellarina), one of my granddaughters, is 8 years old. Several times in the last several years she has told me I'm going to live at least long enough to attend her wedding. Maybe she knows something I don't know. I hope she's not getting married for a long, long time!
On January 14 a driver talking on a cell phone ran a red light and hit me broadside - $6,000 worth of damage to the car. I tried to turn out of the path of the collision and came about an inch from hitting another car head on. I was not hurt - just shook up a little.
After that my granddaughter's words came back to me...that I would live long enough to attend her wedding. That got me to thinking I should start on a wedding quilt for her, finish it and store it away. That way...if I'm not able to attend her wedding I will be there in spirit.
Over the years her favorite colors have switched between red and purple. So, the color palette for her quilt will be red, purple and blue. I've pulled some of those colors from my stash. The pattern will be Double Wedding Ring a.k.a Pickle Dish a.k.a. Gypsy Kisses.
