Not to brag, but I think it turned out really nice actually! I used a pattern I bought from Melissa called Dizzying Diamonds, and the red background fabric really stands out. For the backing I used a plain brown down the center half flanked by a brighter red fabric that had rope lassos laced through it. Fun, fun for a true cowgirl!
Speaking of that, here is a photo of her as her dad is walking her down the aisle. Notice she wore her favorite cowgirl boots under that lovely dress!
Here's a pic of my favorite girl, my daughter Jessica who flew in for the wedding. Always such fun to spend some time with her. Here she is writing out the card to go with the gift. The quilt is wrapped up in a huge gift bag which was sitting right next to her, just out of camera shot......
And this is a pic of my baby brother and I. He had lung cancer and just had a major surgery three months ago to remove part of his lung. Public Service Announcement: If You Smoke, STOP NOW! I was so happy to be able to spend time with him. So happy.
And to finish off this post, I'll just share one other photo of the newlyweds. Turned out her colors were blue and I fit right in!
So, you can see I took a lot of pictures. I just forgot to take a pic of the finished quilt. But honestly, I did get it all bound, hand-stitched and out the door last week. Hope she liked it!
Smiling big this week,
