My brother and sister-in-law got married on Halloween of '09 with a Dia de los Muertos (Mexican Day of the Dead) theme. They're also very into vintage/retro Rockabilly as well. We even did a Pinup Girl photoshoot for the Bachelorette. (*points to icon*) So for their anniversary I decided to do a quilt with the same fabric they used for placecards and embroidered squares. I was so happy with how it came out and they loved it. It's now hanging on the wall behind their bed. Some of the patterns are UrbanThreads and the swallows are Jenny Hart. Some of the squares are just pictures I found/had that I turned into patterns.







I also wove this mini-scarf to wrap it up with in the colors of her wedding dress/veil.

What a special anniversary gift; I'm sure they loved it.  You can see how much love and thought and work that you put into it.
