Quilt With Us

Hi everyone! It's been while since I've posted. Life always seems to throw something at me. 

I've been busy quilting for customers and when I'm not doing that we have been working in the yard. The weather has been so crazy, it was cool for so long and then summer can in at full force and it's HOT! 

DH and I are going to a wedding this afternoon, one of the guys he works with. I have known about this wedding since December, and had plenty of time to prepare but for some reason I never work they way. I always wait until the last minute so why should this time be any different? So, I literally started this quilt Tuesday. I had the fabric cut (it was a kit I was shorted on) just a bunch of 2" strips. I found the free pattern online which called for 2.5" strips but knew it would work, just make a smaller quilt. I really wasn't fond of how it was turning out so it wasn't hard for me to think of letting it go. Butttt, while I was quilting it, it got prettier and prettier. I just finished the binding this morning and then put the bow on, I cut up their invitation (I hope they don't get offended) to make the gift tag. And now, I'm having a really hard time letting it go. I always have a hard time giving a quilt to someone I don't know that well because I'm always afraid it will end up in a garage sale, or one of Pam's lucky finds for $2.00. So hopefully they will love it and use it until it falls apart. I just keep repeating, just let it go....

Lovely quilt! I completely understand about having a hard time letting it go. I have that happen to me sometimes, too. I am sure they will love it though!

Absolutely beautiful, I love the quilting.

Some girls keep the  maiden name along with the new. My 90 year old mother did!

Thank you ladies! The wedding was beautiful! It's was an outdoor wedding and it was 90 degrees yesterday so it was a bit warm. 

I will have to wait a week before I know if they love it or hate it as they are off on their honeymoon as I type this. 

Thank you again for all the compliments! I got to thinking when it was too late to do anything about it that the name tag had her maiden name not her new name! Oops!

The quilting really makes this quilt an extra WOW! If in four more years I can quilt like this! I understand the giving part. My quilts become my children. Each one is special.

BEautifully done, Roxann.  I can see how it wouldn't be all that interesting to piece, but when we take a step back and look at the overall quilt, it has a ton of "wow" factor!  I love, love, love, the quilting motif.  Again, nicely done.  I can see why this is a hard one to part with.  They can't help but love it!

Wow, you came thru with flying colors!  Beautiful!  Perfection, right down to the tag and bow.

It is beautiful. How clever to use their invitation as part of the gift tag.  I hope the happy couple uses it for many years to come.
