The Wedding Quilt

Everyone has their own personal style and way to utilize the internet for purposes that best suit them. One of my favorite things is to draw inspiration. My dear daughter in law Meg does the same. It was she who found an idea of a wedding quilt where family and friends could write a message.  Here's the finished product --


It takes a long time to comment on each photo so I'm not going to do that. If you really care to see or read the messages, you'll probably have to click on each photo to enlarge it. Yes, as the few who have seen it yet have commented, it was a lot of work but I think well worth it. I gave myself a deadline that I would have it done for Kyle's birthday and I did it!  It gave Meg a little fun for his birthday too.

Prayers for Ray and Doug, for Pam, Denny, Dennis, Cara, for all who are challenged with serious illness.  For the recently departed and those who grieve.  Love you all.

P.S. The quilt pattern (sometimes I get asked) is Pandora's Box from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lincott.  A good book.  I got mine at Jackmans a few years ago, not sure that they still carry it but you can find the book (and a preview!) at Amazon.  ... Or check the library, you can borrow a lot of amazing sewing books there.  I do all the time. :)
