long awaited photos....


the middle of the quilt close up

What a perfect day it has been- cool-ish weather, perfect for the gardening that we needed to accomplish. Then, I tidied up the sewing room and made some progress on my string blocks, the pile of finished blocks waiting to be trimmed is growing! And, I finally uploaded and re-sized the photos of the wedding quilt and the wedding photos I took on vacation. If I had more time I would put up a flickr link for more photos, but, I will tackle that another time. For now, I will just put up the most important ones. The quilt photo without the kids is after being quilted, before the binding and labels. My longarm gal wanted a photo for herself, and her husband had a wonderful setup for doing that. I was lucky enough to be given a copy so I could share it here. I am so happy that they both loved the quilt and were so excited about receiving it. Ryan said he had hoped I would make them one but was not sure I would...and they both really liked the colors I used and were quite touched by the family labels as well. What a relief it is to not only have it finished but well received. I know they appreciate it as an expression of my love for them-aren't quilts the best for feeling wrapped up in love?

It looks great Cher, I agree with Tonya, the quilting is wonderful and suits the top well.

It turned out beautifully, Cher with the wonderful piecing you did augmented by the quilting. The feathered heart wreath was a perfect choice on her part. Hurray for getting the full out image of it!


Also congratulations to the happy couple.

It's beautiful and the quilting is especially nice, too.
There's nothing like giving a quilt and knowing it will be loved and appreciated.

Your quilter did a marvelous job on this beautiful top. Quilting always makes a top come truly alive in my opinion by adding the texture that causes the light to play across the surface creating shadows and brighter areas. This is a perfect design for a wedding quilt. I'm so glad they liked it so much. Makes all the hard work worthwhile, doesn't it.

I'm new to blogging and just ran across your blog (which I thoroughly enjoyed). I'm from Portland, OR, which I think you are, also. I am looking for a good long-arm quilter for some quilt tops I have done and would love a recommendation. Could you share who you go to with me?

I loved looking (longingly) at your pictures from your trip to Sisters. I have wanted to go for years but always have had a vacation conflict with it, until this year. I had two different possibilities of going with friends this year and was sure I was going to make it, but both of them fell through and alas, I didn't want to go alone so went on my own little shop hop here to try to make myself feel better. I loved looking at your photos. Thanks for sharing them.

Cheers!
