It's a beautiful quilt--with a wonderful story! You don't get that with store bought.

A gorgeous quilt and I'm sure that they will treasure it. Loved your story and bet the people at the reception loved it, too.

thanks so much for all your kind words. I am hoping that the photographer will have some full shots.

There is a little story around the quilt. I started it around 1998 for our second son to give to him as a wedding quilt one day. Not too long after starting it, we made a move and unfortunately the house was very small and I left the quilt packed away. There were no young ladies in his life at the time so I didn't get back to it until about 2006 after we had moved to a new city and a new home. When I did get back to it, I learned a lesson that its probably not wise to cut out all the pieces in advance as some  had stretched and I was having a dickens of a time with the piecing. In the end, I put it away again as there still was no young lady in his life. Finally in 2010, I began to think that I had better finish this quilt for my son. Perhaps he would never marry and didn't he deserve his quilt. I called a lady that I knew and asked if she knew anyone with a quilt frame and she had one and was at my house a couple hours later and helped me set it up. It was in my kitchen and I could barely move so I proceeded to work night and day to complete this quilt. In in the fall of 2010 it was finally completed. Now our son works in the Canadian foreign service and is often abroad ( the main reason for not finding a wife very easily.....he is 46 and this is a first marriage)) so every time he was home, I would inquire if he would like his quilt and he would decline as he wanted to be a 'wedding' quilt too. Finally in 2012 he had a fiancée but he still declined the quilt until he was actually married so I decided in order to make it something special that I would present it with the above story at the wedding reception which I did so now it is finally in its long awaited home.
