The Wedding Quilt

When the wedding invitations were sent out a piece of fabric was enclosed. I asked everyone to decorate a square.

This is my square.

I've been working on this off and on for the past few years. I originally thought it was going to be much smaller and I could carry it around to events to work on. It's been to Fencing Nationals in Ohio, spent a week with me in Texas....but it was too much to carry around and I was afraid it was going to get ruined.

Some of the squares needed to be reworked and some I embroidered, embellished and beaded. I wanted to do so much more, but the squares speak for themselves and really don't need anything else!

Robert and Ellen loved it and I'm glad it's finally home.

  1. WHAT a great idea! I had spent quite a while cutting out bits of fabric to make a quilt before I got married and then ... one of my sisters found out and offered to put it together for me. I had laughed and told her she had until my 10th anniversary to finish it. SHe now has just over a year and a half to go to make the "deadline."
    I like your idea better. Wish I'd known about that before. :-)
