I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille...

Have had some requests for a closer view of The Wedding Quilt - so here goes...

Each strip was cut at 1 1/4" and sewn to 3/4" .

A special thanks to Jan of Rusty Thimble for all the lovely feathers she did using her long-arm machine.

I chose to not include a border for 2 reasons - most of the time when making Log Cabin quilts, traditional barn raising settings is what I go for. Early log cabin quilts typically did not have borders.

Secondly - and I know you will appreciate my ability to Plan Ahead....cough, cough. There was not enough fabric left...when Jena and I shopped for the fabric in Anchorage last summer, I only knew it would be log cabin in design and we bought everything left on the bolt. So there you have it ! LOL That's my story and I am sticking to it!

This was presented to them on the morning of May 31st - just a little quiet family time before everyone arrived prior to a busy day of company, rehearsal and dinner.

And now the quilt is winging its way to Alaska - it was a joy to make and every stitch is filled with love for them.

Goodness me, what a wonderful piece of work. Even just from the photographs I can see the excellent design and fine stitching. It’s absolutely beautiful and will surely grace the young couple’s home for many years to come.

You can be truly proud of having made and given such a gift.

I am quite moved by the beauty of this quilt,Pat. Not being a quilter (yet) I cannot imagine the hours of work involved in something of this size.

A splendid gift.
