Today at 4 pm CDT my son and his bride will “tie the knot” and get married…
Since they have already received the quilt I made for them starting from a Bluprint kit…. I thought today I could give you some hand fashioned artwork to enjoy ….
This quilt is a wall hanging with a hanging sleeve I added to the back for easy hanging with a rod or push pins in the sleeve part. It measures 40 x 60″ approximately and was soooo fun to embroider by hand, pieced by vintage 301, and layer up and hand quilted … first in a PVC square hoop…
Then once moved I put it on my frame to add more stitching! This is the look I was going for…
Thanks to Shelley my facebook friend for helping me out with focus on this project…. I am not a trendy quilter and she definitely is… so I asked and she helped!
This is my favorite piece to date that I have fashioned 😀 And for this sweet couple!
I will now tell you because of covid … My honey and I are going to see the wedding via a zoom call and interact with the reception crowd on video chat with my daughter and my daughter in law as well! I am so excited for the technology to keep me away from the germs of covid yet allow me to participate some how. Also we are hosting their night after the wedding at a local high end hotel for great honeymoon memories 🥰
So as this big event has been nearing…. I have been quilting like crazy! Because all us hand stitchers know this makes everything more calm.
Last week I shared this photo…
This week I have rolled two times and now I am halfway across this row…
To back up just a bit… my new blog header came from progress made THIS WEEK!
I am enjoying this hand quilting project for sure!
Linking all this hand quilting successes and progress to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching crew HERE <<<< Come see the embroidery of an art piece she is sharing this week and a victory lap for her too ❤
More to come… refill your cuppa and keep reading! Our home is done being painted!!!!
We love the grey paint and accent caramel colored shutters… it really brings out the wood on the porch and coordinates with the new roof we just had put on too!
Since these photos were taken yesterday… my honey has installed a new wood screen door to replace the white vinyl one… we will stain it to match the porch and paint the front door the caramel of the shutters 🙂
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead… I plan to soak up the joy of this day in our family life… and quilt between calls and shower and getting dressed for the event from afar….
God bless each of you and bring on the vaccines!
