This will be my last wedding quilt in a while. I can't believe my three youngest sibling have all married within the last 12 months! It's wonderful to see them all so happy with their special someone.
The idea behind this quilt is that there's a side for Rory, and a side for Erin, and they each have a little of each other within their heart. You can see a pic of the whole quilt top here. I made it long enough that it can sit on the end of their bed, and they can both cuddle under it on the couch. I think its my biggest yet.
Its always nice getting a good reaction, and they even liked the back!
This one was entirely machine quilted - straight lines on the sashing and borders and free motion stitching on the blocks. I found this was much easier than trying to free motion quilt the whole quilt. I only had to focus on one small section at a time. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I love that binding.
Erin and Rory's wedding was wonderful. It was a hot day - 35 degrees - so the kids were a little wild :)
But the bride and groom were just radiant. These are my siblings, along with my newest brother in law... Welcome to the family Rory! You have yourself a stunning bride there!
And here's a pic with all of the in-laws and kids... and we're still growing!
I love being part of such a big and close knit family and it was fantastic having everyone in one place at the same time, particularly as mum and dad will be leaving on their mission to Finland in a few days! Time is going waaaay too fast.
