My In-laws’ anniversary is one week away and I almost have the quilt finished. I just need to create and attach the story label for the back of the quilt. I found their wedding invitation and am trying to find just the right photo to go with it. All I have though are photos of the bride and I want to include both of them…I’ll keep looking…not giving up yet.’
This quilt has a definite Celtic theme for my mother-in-law. It was fun picking out the embroidery designs and stitching them out. Each quilt is a learning experience and this one was no exception. I haven’t done an embroidery quilt in so long, I forgot some of the “rules”. My blocks had some puckering which I think is from making the hoop too tight. I need hooping lessons 🙂 Yes, I’ve been to many classes and seminars but I think I need a one-on-one, hands on lesson. The quilting is free-motion with my Bernina BSR…the wonderful 830 was my machine of choice for this project. It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to give it to them very soon.
Here it is!
It is a little hard to see the detail in the squares, but you get the overall picture. The center block is a wreath of interlocked wedding rings with their names & wedding date on it.
Until next time…happy sewing & quilting!
