Another Wedding Quilt! (no. 26)
So here it was just before we left on the 2 hour drive to the wedding:
(I still had the binding left to do! I had finished all the machine sewing the night before I flew to Utah for the wedding. I only had 1 small corner left to hand sew while we drove!)
I finished the last stitch just as we pulled into Cache Valley! I know, it's cutting it close, but that's how I roll... and at least it was finished before the wedding!
What a beautiful bride! How fun to have a picture of her with the quilt!
And this seems to make it extra special: having their name and wedding date embroidered on the back.
and here's one more picture of me with my baby and the bride:
and now for the confession: Remember that the reason for this blog was to help me start finishing all those un-finished projects I had? Well, this was one of them. I had started it 3 years ago for my brothers wedding. I finished the blocks, but realized I wasn't going to be able to finish it before the wedding. I decided to give money instead, and since I had that brothers name for Christmas that year, I planned to give it to them then. Sadly, the marriage did not last until Christmas, and this quilt has been waiting in the fabric closet since then. So, it was already half done, just waiting to be a wedding quilt...
