I'm so excited today.
The wedding quilt is Finished!!! And in plenty of time before the wedding.
I finally got up enough courage to free motion quilt the feathers in the white border. Spent a lot of time drawing them over and over on paper to get the right mental motion fixed in my mind. I did a small practice piece first, and I did notice as I was sewing that I improved as I went along.
My son is a mechanical engineer, and the strong geometric design really appealed to him. In fact, he re-designed the blocks so there are no set-in seams! I set the blocks on point to resemble a Double Wedding Ring. The corner blocks are "Sarah's Choice", a traditional pattern. It finishes off the quilt nicely, and adds a personal touch.
I think Sarah made an excellent choice, and I'm sure my DS did! We're so thrilled to have her for our DIL. We're very proud of her as she graduates this weekend from North Dakota State University.
In an example of terrible timing, I had to take DS to the airport today for a business trip to Bangkok, Thailand. He'll have to miss her graduation, but he WILL be back in time for their wedding.
Linking up this week with other great finishes at:
Finish it up Friday
Can I get a Whoop Whoop?
