When I got hitched, 31 years ago, my friends and family made a quilt for me. I wanted to share that experience with my daughter when she got married this past August. Here is the result:
This project was a true collaboration. Friends and family contributed squares that evoked a memory or feeling about either my daugher, my new SIL or about them as a couple. Some of my favorite squares:
My dad chose this picture he took of Meg when she was still in h.s. I had him sign his name and then we made a picture transfer.
My mom's square represents a quilt she made for Meg when she was little and even uses fabric from clothing Meg had as a baby/toddler!
My sister's square. TOO cute!!!
One of my squares (I had to come up with 5 to fill in for folks who didn't complete squares). Meg collects giraffes!
A square I made to represent my DH and I -- we are all (DH, DD, SIL, and me) NMU grads, so I thought this was appropriate.
And finally -- a square made by Sansa that she sent many moons ago as an extra in a swap package. I saved this for just the right occasion, since this is a "picture" of Haily, my pooch, who used to be Meg's pooch! Haily claimed the square as her's, but I embroidered Sansa's name on the square as well.
Thanks for looking!
